Human Anatomy & Physiology takes a learner-centered approach to help today’s A&P students grasp key concepts in anatomy and physiology, and apply these concepts to understand how the human body works. Amerman uses just-in-time coaching, focused and uncluttered visuals that show one-concept-at-a-time, rich self-assessments, and author-narrated animations and videos to provide students the help they need when they need it most. The text’s approachable style and wide variety of online learning tools for today’s on-the-go student makes A&P accessible for all learners–visual, kinesthetic, or auditory.
