Based on Memmler's The Human Body in Health and Disease, this textbook is an excellent primer that focuses on normal anatomy and physiology. With an accessible design and a robust multimedia electronic ancillary package, the Tenth Edition is even more engaging and understandable for students with diverse learning styles. It builds on its solid foundation by seamlessly integrating the placement and relationship of the art and text. A new Full Body insert has been added to the text to assist students in performing a virtual dissection of the human body from skin down to bone. 

The new editions’ PASSport to Success retains all the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic activities introduced with the last edition, plus additional animations and activities. The interface has been enhanced to improve the student experience, while the connection with the text has been strengthened with a list of ancillaries by learning style on each chapter opener. The addition of PrepU as an available package is the perfect tool to help students understand and retain key course information...and have higher rates of success in the class.
