Reviews book: The book uses visual analogies to assist the student in learning details of human anatomy. By using these analogies, the student can take things they already know from experiences in everyday life and mentally superimpose them onto anatomical structures with which they are unfamiliar. The book offers a variety of learning activities. Students can label diagrams, create their own drawings or color existing black and white illustrations to better understand the presented material. Features of A Visual Analogy Guide to Human Anatomy: * Covers all major human organ systems and includes sections on basic cell biology and histology. * Analogies and other key concepts are presented in a modular format with the text on the even-numbered pages and illustrations and analogies on the facing odd-numbered page. * Large, high-quality, original illustrations presented in two- colors, (black and white with colored highlights). * Students may choose to color these illustrations to aid their comprehension of the material. * Helpful icons throughout the book identify microscopic structures, study tips, two and three-dimensional structures. * A "visual index" will be included for easy referencing. Located on the upper right-hand side of the odd numbered pages, these "visual index" illustrations will allow the reader to quickly locate the analogy he or she wishes to study. * When a diagram has a fill-in-the-blank section, the answers will be found on the facing page. This will allow the student to learn not only through self-quizzing, but also through the process of re-writing the correct information in the labeling areas.
