This widely read classic is an excellent primer on normal and abnormal anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, basic microbiology, chemistry, and the human disease process. With an accessible design and a robust multimedia electronic ancillary package, the Twelfth Edition is even more engaging and understandable for students with diverse learning styles. It builds on its solid foundation by seamlessly integrating the placement and relationship of the art and text.

The interface has been enhanced to improve the student experience, while the connection with the text has been strengthened with a list of ancillaries by learning style on each chapter opener. PrepU is now available wtih this text, which gives an additional opportunity for students to understand and retain key course concepts - and increase their levels of succcess in the class.
