A& P Prep Course

Definition & Purpose

A thorough introductory course on human form and function.
This course presents a large, complex body of scientific knowledge in an easily
understood, conversational writing style. Focusing on concepts rather than
descriptions, the text uses a “big picture” theme of body function and also
explains the body’s homeostatic regulation. For the first time, every new
textbook includes a downloadable e-book, which is a fully searchable, electronic
version of the text plus learning resources from Anatomy & Physiology Online
– with animations by body system, images, an electronic coloring book,
interactive exercises, and more.

Course Objective

Upon successful completion of the course the student will be able to recognize and use terminology, general principles associated with the structure and function(s) of human body systems. Student will able to apply normal and clinical concepts of human anatomy and physiology. Recognize,identify, and state the major function(s) of human organs based on text and lecture information.
