• Clinical Connections. A select group of Clinical Connection are being integrated back into the text with further selections incorporated as examples within WileyPLUS.
• All case stories have been edited with over half of them new to this edition. They have been replaced or updated based on the suggestions of my adopters and reviewers.
• Extensive revisions to the illustrations include more saturated colors, revised renderings of muscles, arteries and veins, lymphatics, and numerous other illustrations throughout the text.
• The Urinary System chapter has been thoroughly revised to offer more help and clarity for students with the difficult concepts within this system.
• Relevant case stories draw students in, keep them connected to the content and provide the platform for developing the critical thinking skills so necessary for their future professions. Thoroughly revised and updated for this edition, the link between the case and the relevant anatomy and physiology in each chapter is even more closely connected.
• Actively engaging students with the learning process is made simple with the integration of multiple and varied learning resources, including such dynamic assets as animations, iPod downloads, clinical connections, drill and practice labeling activities from cadavers to models to illustrations, virtual dissection experience with Real Anatomy, and creative interactive exercises and concept maps for reviewing material. These resources meet the needs of students with a wide range of learning style preferences and reinforce the focused design of the integrated text and media.
• Many revised illustrations included in this new edition draw the students immediately into the content and provide the important visual representation of the content needed to successfully grasp the material.
• All content and assessment activity is linked to clearly articulated learning objectives, assuring the ability to measure successful outcomes. WileyPLUS provides immediate feedback to manage and measure success which motivates students to keep on task as they progress through the course.
