Practical and student-friendly, this helpful study guide reinforces comprehension of information covered in the fifth edition of the parent text. This valuable resource provides students with practice necessary for success in their study of anatomy and physiology.
An increase in content makes this edition even more comprehensive.
Each chapter begins with a brief introduction, then includes exercises in the forms of these types of questions: * multiple choice * true/false * matching * fill in the blanks * identify the term that does not belong * application questions * labeling exercises * crossword puzzles
