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 a new design and a robust new multimedia electronic ancillary package, this Eleventh Edition will be even more engaging and understandable for students with diverse learning styles. This edition's new artwork includes real dissection photographs from Rohen's Color Atlas of Anatomy, Sixth Edition. New Disease in Context case scenarios integrated throughout each chapter show how content is applied to real-life situations. Icons direct students to relevant electronic materials. The new PASSport to Success online student ancillary package includes a learning styles assessment that guides students to the interactive activities best suited to their individual learning style. Eleven different types of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic activities are presented on the PASSport Website and on a bound-in CD-ROM. LiveAdvise one-to-one online tutoring is also included.
