Description

Physiology Secrets, 2nd Edition is a good balance of basic physiology and clinical applications with comprehensive coverage of physiology. As basic science courses are increasingly becoming problem-based, with an emphasis on clinical applications of basic science principles, the Secrets approach is ideally suited to present this kind of information. In its basic Q & A format, this approach is also especially well suited to focusing on the key information in each area of what can be a difficult subject of study.

Key Features

  • Concise answers with valuable pearls, tips, memory aids, and "secrets"
  • Includes multiple choice "Final Exam" Q&A
  • Raff now editor of leading undergrad physiology book, Vander's Physiology. Will have increased name recognition.
