Book DescriptionMastery of the science of human anatomy and physiology is important for students who are planning careers in health-related fields such as medicine, nursing, dentistry, medical technology, physical therapy, and athletic training.
The third edition of Schaum’s Outline of Human Anatomy and Physiology continues the commitment of previous editions of combining effective and carefully selected illustrations with concise and up-to-date anatomical and physiological descriptions. Careful attention has been paid to recent advances in the fast-paced field of medically and clinically significant physiological processes as well as the use of appropriate and current anatomical terminology.
Pedagogical features and conventions introduced in previous editions have been retained and updated. The art program has been evaluated and where necessary, new illustrations have been added or altered to enhance the visual learning. Tables and charts throughout the text have been updated to improve readability and clarity. As with previous editions, key clinical terms and a comprehensive index are available.
