Setting the Standard for
Innovation in A&P

Human
Anatomy & Physiology
has launched the careers of more than
three million healthcare professionals. With the newly revised Tenth
Edition
, Marieb and Hoehnintroduce a clear pathway through A&P
that helps students and instructors focus on key concepts and make
meaningful connections. Each chapter opens with a visual “Chapter
Roadmap” that guides students through the material and shows how
concepts are related within and across chapters. The new modular
organization makes key concepts more readily apparent and understandable
to students, and new videos help students see why the content matters
in their course as well as their future careers. As students master
important concepts and follow a clear path through chapter content, the
expanded suite of learning tools in the book and in MasteringA&P
ensure they don’t get lost along the way.

Look. If I had to spend a couple hundred dollars on this book AND it's going to dominate my life for the next few months... it's sure as hell going to count for my reading challenge

Pretty good book
Pretty good book! Comparing with the older version, they are quite a bit the same. However, they explain information in more specific detailed. I love it after all, highly recommend it to anyone who's going to medical field. :)

I READ THIS BOOK!!!

While A&P is interesting to a point, I did NOT enjoy this class or this book.

However, since I did read Every. Single. Word. in this book, and spent the last eight months of my life as if this were my bible, I am OWNING it! I read this book, and am currently in finals week, going into finals with a solid A, thank you very much!!!

I can't really write a conclusive review on how good the text is, but I feel like my brain is exploding with knowledge right now. My study buddy I READ THIS BOOK!!!

My study buddy and I would look at each other and laugh at the words coming out of each other's mouths. Like, who really cares at what stage of meiosis the primary oocyte becomes a secondary oocyte and how many chromosomes are in each stage? Apparently I'm supposed to, so I'll pretend! Can't say it was fun...it's the hardest class I've ever taken. But I sure did learn a couple of new things ;)

Now, if only textbooks didn't cost this ridiculous amount of money! ...more

Buy the international version and save!!
This book has worked perfectly for my BIO 168 class, (A & P). No issues with the international edition. The savings are totally worth the different cover ;) I've compared it to my classmates and it's the same.

Textbook, you cost far too much money. I mean, really? I work in publishing, and I know how it's all a rip-off, but come on. That much? That's ridiculous. Sure you have pretty pictures of clavicles and great diagrams of the Action Potential that helped me understand, but I just know that money is not going to the artists or authors or lowly editorial assistants. So give them more money or make the book cheaper.

Textbook, you are too heavy. It hurt to have you in my bag with one other heavy thing or a multitude of light things. Please be less heavy? And I don't want to read you on an a iExpensiveReader thing. I like books, but I like it when they're not so heavy. I don't really know what you can do about that, but maybe you can pay for me to get a massage now, because my back hurts.

That said, textbook, you were good to me. You got me through A&P, and sometimes you even made me smile a little with your subtle wit. I'm going to keep you around, textbook, and maybe some day when we're old and gray we can laugh about how once upon a time you said there was no cure for cancer. At least I hope so.

So far it's okay i haven't found any difference between this version and the US version. I think even the page numbers are the same. The material is well delivered and the product arrived on time and in great condition all around a good buy for the price.

If you're like me and a college student you don't have any ...
This is a view for the way this book is written. If you're like me and a college student you don't have any chose in the matter of which textbook your school chooses. There are several reason I hate this textbook, starting with...
1- Text book works from a build up perspective causing it to be very confusing. For example, if you knew nothing about cars and I needed to teach you about cars; I would start with what you know about cars already, (this is a car, its parts are a motor, transmission and so on) and then break down each individual piece and process that makes up the car and how it operates. It would be easier to relate to and grasp than starting with a lesson in detailed lesson physics where you have to look up every other word I say to even comprehend what's going on. Plus, even when you figure out that physics formula you are totally confused about were it fits in the whole big picture. That's the approach this book takes, it starts out in the second chapter with chemistry and get so in detail to every little aspect your not really sure what you are talking about
anymore. Which, brings me to #2
2. The book is boring - you know how have some textbooks that are interesting to read, they have breaking moments in heavy information that is appealing or comparable to everyday life or modern culture, this is not one of those books. It's very to hard to keep interest because it's so much monotone information.
3. Bold-face font, colors and variety - not a whole lot of that in this book. You know how most books have little hints in letting you know important things to really grasp from each chapter or section so you can take a moment to really let that info resonate, this, nope not here. It basically like reading an instruction manual in a different language.

This book sucks!

Well, this book got me through two semesters of A&P. Now, on to Microbiology. I will be keeping this book. It served as a great reference for learning the body systems.

This hefty door-stopper has been my weekly companion for the past two semester at a local college. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I decided to change careers mid-life, but the thought of getting into allied health was/is appealing, so I'll be sticking with it for the next 2-3 years.

I'm not sure what I was thinking when I decided to change careers mid-life, but the thought of getting into allied health was/is appealing, so I'll be sticking with it for the next 2-3 years.

Human Anatomy & Physiology is a book that easily overwhelms. Lectures aside, most of the actual studying was done in a self-study settings, using this book as much as necessary, which is to say about twenty hours each week.

From the start, I knew that I was about to learn some amazing things about the human body, and this book did deliver on that front. It starts relatively easy, on a cellular level, then progresses along the anatomy path from the integumentary system through bones, muscles, and nerves all the way to physiology. That's where the real fun begins. Well, not fun, exactly.

While this book likely only scratches the surface of the human physiology, it is full of fascinating stuff. The way our bodies work, the way the various systems support one another, and the chemical messengers involved are just ridiculously complex and simple at the same time. I will not bore anyone here with scientific explanations, but it is amazing stuff. The only downside to learning this much, is knowing this much in daily life - for example, last time I had the stomach bug, I kept interpreting what my body was doing, how it was compensating, et cetera. After spending nine months with a book at twenty hours a week, it becomes somewhat of a second nature.

For students, I must say this book is well organized, with clear text and great illustrations/photos. Since anyone is healthcare is pretty much required to take A&P, I'm sure there are hundreds of thousands of people reading this very edition. I would recommend that you do your homework, read the chapters, and take the free quizzes available on the publisher's website. Those help with preparations for exams. And there are exams aplenty.

Basic knowledge of Greek and Latin helps greatly with the material, because most names are either Greek or Latin based. If you know what things mean, it will make more sense that memorization alone. Memorization will get you though Anatomy, but actual understanding is necessary for Physiology.

One last note - if you can, take the class at a smaller, community college. I'm glad I did. We had a class of about twenty, and it allowed for interactive lectures, and awesome lab experiments/case studies. The people I know who took A&P at large universities and colleges (and some well known schools at that) have not covered 50% of what we got to do at a community college. ...more

I recently purchased this A&P book, Brand New10th edition ...
I recently purchased this A&P book, Brand New10th edition to ensure I was within the confines of what was required for my class. While the book and the acces code came completely sealed and seemingly unused, the access code is not accepted by Pearson. I tried several times thinking it could possibly be user error. It seems I received a defective code. I have written to the seller and have yet to get a response, something I find unacceptable as a consumer. Asked for suggestion on how to move forward and yet again, no response. Now I’m forced to purchase another access code and there goes more spending and less saving on books which are exorbitantly priced to begin with. There is no communication with the seller.

It stated that the book was in “good” condition but I think it was in almost perfect! No rips, missing pages, marks or anything. The binding has a small ruffle near the bottom but it’s very very minor. If In the future I need another book, I’ll be trying to go through this seller, definitely!. This book is used in all of my A&P courses and even though we aren’t required to have the text, it makes a big difference to actually have it!!

Good textbook aside from missing pages
I rented this textbook from Amazon, and it came quite promptly - no issues there.
As I got further into the school semester (and textbook), I realized there were many pages that had been ripped out. I wouldn't consider the missing pages to be very significant in other textbooks, but the pages that are missing are detailed pictures and tables that correspond to important information such as bone growth, details of the vertebrae, microscopic anatomy of muscles, among others.
The book itself is informative, I've enjoyed reading through the textbook. It would just be useful to rent textbooks that are complete rather than having to borrow and copy the pages out of my instructor/friends textbook.

Rented TextBook came in perfect condition!
This was my first time renting a book from Amazon and I was hesitant at first. However, I am glad that I made the right choice! I rented the book a few weeks before school starts and it came just in time! The textbook was in perfect condition-NO scratches, pen/pecil markings, and any missing pages! I thought it was brand new cause it's really nice! *Just save the box so you can use it when you return the book.
The book was helpful to me because I have to fill in my lab manual. The pictures were clear for me to distinguish each bone part or muscles. I definitely recommend this for those taking an Anatomy class in college!

Wow! What an intense and overwhelming class. There is just so much information to know. I'm happy to say I am in FINALS WEEK, and can kiss this class goodbye.

......only until next semester when I will then take AP2 :(


UPDATE: I got an A in AP2!!!!!!

this textbook is a work of a genius, a must-have for every medical student, it contains a very rich & illustrative diagrams that makes understanding concepts very easy, and an easy language that makes informations pass throug my brain so quickly. It has been a wonderful journey in the human body from molecules to reproduction of a hole new body, thanks a lot Elain Marieb for this Masterpiece.
