Editorial Reviews

Rodney Lahren
"This program is a boon to students of gross anatomy, as some features in the cadaver lab can be rather obscure or absent in particular individuals. The ability to review the procedures before proceeding with formal dissection and to review at an individual pace outside the lab can only enhance the learning process. I found the program to be extremely easy to use." (Lahren, Rodney H., M.D.: "Books, Journals, Software", JAMA, vol. 274, no 11., September 20, 1995, p. 921.)
The fourth edition continues to emphasize interrelationships of body organ systems, homeostasis, and complementarity of structure and function. The retouched art and new pedagogical features reflect the textbook's recent induction into the digital age. Brand new to this edition are the student study tips<-->creative ways to cope with the huge volume of information presented. The CD-ROM is an animated interactive study tool with case studies and images. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
