Last week I added a new page in the Lion Den describing a new tool for your A&P learning toolbox:
First introduced a decade ago, this popular pocket guide has been completely updated with newly revised content and an almost complete redraw of the illlustrations.
Many A&P students have found this guide useful in their first A&P course. But they've also found that it's a great tool to have in their pockets during later courses, especially clinical experiences, and even in their jobs, as they've needed a quick refresher on essential structures & functions of the human body.
Many clinicians find the Handbook of A&P to be a great tool for patient teaching. The diagrams and tables often help explain basic anatomy or physiology to a patient trying to understand their health condition or a medical procedure.
The handbook is also useful in other professions such as insurance, art illustration, law enforcement, fashion, fitness, and business, when knowing about the structure or function of the body (or its parts) is helpful to getting the job done right.
Over the past weekend, I updated the page regarding the Survival Guide for A&P, which has recently come out in a second, expanded edition.
Some of the new features include:
- Two additional sections on key study skills, bringing the total to 12.
- Expanded tables on muscles and bones that include pronunciation guides and literal translations of each structure listed.
- More of those popular cartoons highlighting principles and analogies covered in the guide.
- More analogies and models to help student get some of the common sticky points in the A&P course.
- New sections on text anxiety, using digital tools for learning, and English as a second language.
- A lot more!
