The ultimate study tool to help you master pathophysiology! Corresponding to the chapters in the Pathophysiology, 6th Edition textbook, this study guide helps you review and practice the material with a variety of exercises and question types, including multiple choice, true/false, matching, fill in the blank, compare/contrast, and labeling. Thorough updates include nearly 50 case studies that provide real-life examples of how you will use pathophysiology in their careers.

Key Features

  • More than 1,500 questions in a variety of question types reinforce your understanding with multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank, and matching questions, plus labeling exercises and compare/contrast tables.
  • Approximately 250 case study questions are included at the end of each unit, and rationales to the answers are provided in the answer key.
  • Answer key is conveniently located in the back of the study guide.
