Anatomy & Physiology: The Laboratory Experience Vol. I

by Bruce Wingerd, Ph.D.

A perfect accompaniment to any anatomy and physiology textbook, this lab manual can be adopted as-is or customized to meet your specific needs. Students are invited to learn through a comprehensive selection of lab exercises, an engaging writing style, a relevant and supportive art program, and a minimum of essential narrative.

The labs can be used as-is or customized, even down to the word or illustration with writing style that involves students in their own learning process.

  • Narrative is kept to an essential level, avoiding lengthy descriptions.
  • Detailed dissection guides are included.
  • A unique step-by-step instruction in histology.
  • An interactive series of questions included in each lab exercise.
  • “Review Questions” and “Applying Your New Knowledge” segments at the end of each chapter.
