Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The Used and Rental copies of this book are not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


This carefully developed new book is appropriate for readers with varied backgrounds and learning styles. The authors incorporate numerous integrative features-such as systems integration charts and an integrative exercise physiology chapter-to help readers take what they learn on the cellular, chemical, organ, and system levels and apply it to the body as a whole. This technique weaves a relevant, concrete body systems integration theme throughout the book, helping readers to build on their knowledge. For college instructors and students.
