For 2-semester Anatomy & Physiology Courses


Built for the Way Today’s Students Learn

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.


Also Available with MasteringA&P ®
This title is also available with MasteringA&P – an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to
engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and
pursue a personalized study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with MasteringA&P, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID.
