Summary

Principles of Anatomy and Physiologyis designed to be comprehensive enough to provide the background necessary for those courses not requiring prerequisites and yet is concise so as not to confuse and overwhelm students. The Tate text features realistic illustrations and exceptional photographs that, along with clear, straight-forward writing and an emphasis on clinical material help students develop a solid understanding of anatomy and physiology concepts. Explanations have just the right amount of detail, with usually only one example instead of two or three. Other texts use several complex figures to illustrate many conceptsTate uses less, but more efficient, art. The result is a shorter, simplified textbook that covers all of the major points found in more lengthy texts, but is easier to read and more economical in price. Also included in this package is the lab manual written by Eric Wise of Santa Barbara City College, this comprehensive manual contains 43 laboratory exercises that are integrated closely with the textbook. Each exercise demonstrates key anatomical and physiological facts and principles presented in Seeley's Principles of Anatomy and Physiologyby directing students to investigate specific concepts in greater detail. An instructor's manual for the laboratory manual is available online at www.mhhe.com/labcentral.

So boring October 18, 2014

Seely's A&P should come with a Sealy mattress gift card to make up for how boring it is.
