Best Human Anatomy and Physiology

The Best Medical Textbook - A Must Have Textbook for Medical Students

Human anatomy and physiology deals with the study of organs and systems: their mechanical, physical, bioelectrical and chemical functions. It is definitely one of the harder science subjects to study, the task is made even more difficult without proper reference material. Elaine N. Marieb and co-writer Katja Hoehn have come together to explain the subject in a meaningful and memorable way by writing Human Anatomy & Physiology. I believe this textbooks has outdone all the other books on this topic by putting together the contents of the book in an order that makes the subject more interesting and easy to understand. The authors completely understand the subject and provided an elaborate explanation on portions that can prove challenging to many people.

The pictures have diagrams, which many students and professionals find very useful as a reference. Many people consider anatomy and physiology to be a very challenging subject for medical students. The subject requires tedious work and extra effort in getting acquainted with all its aspects. I think Hoehn and Marieb have compiled the best human anatomy and physiology textbook for students and professionals alike, as it provides a comprehensive approach to the subject in an exceedingly easy way. Even the summary after each section provides an in-depth yet simplified information to help the reader understand and remember what has been discussed in detail.

Medical courseCredit:

In most medical courses, the anatomy and physiology unit is divided into two topics. Initially the medical student first cover all the organs of the human body. After this the students progress onto how the different system of the human body function. This book completely envelops both sections, so it will come handy when learning about human anatomy and physiology. The book is well-worded so that even a layman can understand the subject. The only disadvantage that many readers have found about the book is in some of the sections that are comprehensive in nature. The book resolved this by providing extensive and detailed explanations about areas that need scientific jargon.
