About the book

Learn. Practice. Assess.

Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology
was created for the introductory level student and assumes no prior science knowledge by placing emphasis on the fundamentals. This new edition updates a great A&P classic while offering greater efficiencies to the user. The format for the 13th edition focuses on Learning Outcomes and Assessments. This will benefit the student along with the instructor.

Key features

  • Anatomy & Physiology Revealed (APR) icons: These icons are found in figure legends and indicate that there is a direct link to APR available in the eBook provided with Connect Plus for this title!
  • Updated micrographs and corresponding art: Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology,13e features many new micrographs and corresponding artwork.
  • Anatomy & Physiology Revealed Quizzes: Adopters of Anatomy & Physiology Revealed (online or DVD), can create labeling, multiple choice and animation quizzes delivered through a Course Management System, EZ Test Online or McGraw-Hill Connect.
  • McGraw-Hill Higher Education and Blackboard ® have teamed up! What does this mean for you'

    Life simplified. Now, all McGraw– Hill content (text, tools, & homework) can be accessed directly from within your Blackboard course. All with one sign-on.

    Deep integration. McGraw-Hill's content and content engines are seamlessly woven within your Blackboard course.

    No more manual synching! Connect™ assignments within Blackboard automatically (and instantly) feed grades directly to your Blackboard grade center. No more keeping track of two gradebooks!

    A solution for everyone. Even if your institution is not currently using Blackboard, we have a solution for you. Ask your McGraw-Hill representative for details.

  • Ancillary correlation guide. Continuing with the emphasis on outcomes and assessments, the authors have created a valuable ancillary correlation guide that is available online. Organized by learning outcome, this guide directs instructors to the specific media or print supplemental resource that correlates to each learning outcome.
  • Instructor's manual and test bank questions correlated to outcomes. The authors have revised both the instructor's manual and test questions that accompany Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology Bank to be correlated by learning outcome.
  • InnerConnections multipurpose illustrations. Found at the end of systems chapters, these illustrations conceptually link the highlighted body system to every other system, reinforcing the dynamic interactions of groups of organs. These graphic representations review chapter concepts, make connections, and stress the "big picture" in learning and applying the concepts and facts of anatomy and physiology.
  • A&P Prep: A&P Prep, available on the text website, helps students to prepare for their upcoming coursework in anatomy and physiology. This website enables students to perform self assessments and conduct self study sessions with tutorials in: Cell Biology, Math, Chemistry, Physics, Study Skills, and Medical Terminology.
  • This title includes Connect with LearnSmart- an online assessment tool featuring McGraw-Hill’s unique adaptive, diagnostic learning tool- LearnSmart.
  • Animations embedded in PowerPoint slides - The high quality animations that have long accompanied Hole's Anatomy and Physiology are now embedded into the PowerPoint slides for easy incorporation in lectures by simply using the copy/paste function of PowerPoint.
  • Concise summary material. Hole’s places an emphasis on succinct summaries by incorporate tables throughout the text that correlate to the narrative and avoid excessive detail.
  • From Science to Technology sections. These sections preview the technological applications of knowledge in anatomy and physiology that students are likely to encounter in the future, and explain how and why the technology was developed. This information enhances student understanding of the material presented.
  • Foundations for Success. This section was specifically designed to help students LEARN how to study at the collegiate level and efficiently use the tools available to them.
  • Color–coded appendix references. References to appendices appear in a different color to make them stand out for quick student reference to the outstanding appendices.
  • Excellent Clinical Coverage – Hole's incorporate an appropriate amount of clinical coverage to draw students into the material by showing readers the relevance of the information presented. Clinical applications help students better understand a concepts from a practitioner's perspective.
  • Learning outcomes and assessments. This edition of Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology features an emphasis on outcomes and assessment. Each chapter begins with a list of learning outcomes that are referenced to the appropriate page in the chapter. At the end of the chapter, the authors have incorporated both page-referenced assessments and integrative (critical thinking) assessments.
  • Figure Questions: Questions have been added to key figures in every chapter. These questions allow an additional assessment for the student.
