Frederic (?Ric?) Martini, now joined by accomplished educator and award-winning teacher Judi Nath as his new co-author, builds on his best-selling text by making the Eighth Edition the most student-focused and the easiest to use of all editions yet published. Student-focused elements include new chapter-opening Learning Outcomes, new sentence-style chapter headings that not only introduce new topics but also teach, and a new and simple Tips & Tricks feature that gives students easy analogies and mnemonic devices to help them remember information. The award-winning art program has been enhanced with more deeply contrasting colors and more dimensionality. Every student book is automatically packaged with Martini?s Atlas of the Human Body, the Interactive Physiology? (IP) 10-System Suite CD-ROM (including the brand-new and eagerly-awaited 10th module on the Immune System), and access to the dramatically upgraded myA&P? companion website. Convenient references in the chapters of the book to the Atlas, IP-10, and myA&P help students seamlessly integrate each component into their study routine. In addition to IP-10 and myA&P, the enhanced media offerings for this edition include the new 3D Anatomy Animations with Gradable Quizzes, the new 3D Animations of Origins, Insertions, Actions, and Innervations with Gradable Quizzes, and Media Manager 2.1 featuring an easy-to-use ?shopping cart? feature.
