More About This Textbook

Overview

The Laboratory Manual for Anatomy and Physiology by Allen and Harper presents material in a clear and concise way.  It is very interactive and contains activities and experiments that enhance readers’ ability to both visualize anatomical structures and understand physiological topics.  Lab exercises are designed to require readers to first apply information they learned and then to critically evaluate it.  All lab exercises promote group learning and the variety offers learning experiences for all types of learners (visual, kinesthetic, and auditory).  Additionally, the design of the lab exercises makes them easily adaptable for distance learning courses.
