9780071438278: Anatomy Demystified

Say goodbye to dry presentations, grueling formulas, and abstract theories that would put Einstein to sleep -- now there's an easier way to master the disciplines you really need to know.

McGraw-Hill's Demystified Series teaches complex subjects in a unique, easy-to-absorb manner, and is perfect for users without formal training or unlimited time. They're also the most time-efficient, interestingly written "brush-ups" you can find.

Organized as self-teaching guides, they come complete with key points, background information, questions at the end of each chapter, and even final exams. You'll be able to learn more in less time, evaluate your areas of strength and weakness and reinforce your knowledge and confidence.

This clear, heavily-illustrated guide to the human body covers anatomy of cells and tissues, muscle tissue, major muscles of the body, nervous tissue, membranes, organs, cancer, the skin, the human skeleton, the nervous system, glands, the senses, the cardiovascular system, the immune system, the respiratory system, digestion, genitourinary system, the embryo, and more.

THE FAST AND EASY WAY TO GET TO THE HEART OF HUMAN ANATOMY

Now anyone with an interest in anatomy can master it -- without med school classes or unlimited time. In Anatomy Demystified, popular anatomy professor and writer Dale Layman provides an effective and painless way to learn or review anatomy from the chemical level up though the entire body.

With Anatomy Demystified, you master the subject one step at a time -- at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide identifies a set of Key Facts for each chapter and provides self-test questions at the end of each chapter and section to reinforce learning and pinpoint weaknesses. The 100-question final exam reviews the entire book. Used alone or in concert with its "mate," Physiology Demystified, this book helps you master the structure of the human body.

This heavily illustrated guide gives you everything you need to:
* Learn the structure of human muscles, bones, nervous tissue, the cardiovascular system, glands, and organs
* Master the genitourinary, digestive, and respiratory systems
* Discover the intricacies of sense systems and immune function
* Conquer cellular and embryonic anatomy
* Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

A fast, effective way to learn anatomy, Anatomy Demystified is the perfect shortcut to a deeper understanding of the human body -- even more so when coupled with Physiology Demystified.
