End of chapter Study Guide offers several methods for student assessment:
Exceptional writing. Saladin offers the reader accurate content that is presented at an appropriate level of detail for the beginning A&P student. The author incorporates clinical examples, real-life applications, and “try this yourself” activities to make the content interesting to the student, but does so in moderation to keep the discussion focused on the main ideas. Students are better able to understand the difficult information provided without being overloaded with extraneous details.
Superior art program. Saladin raised the bar on art programs in A&P! Saladin's art program features the highest quality of realism, 3D appeal, accuracy, and clarity. Digital files of the entire art program are also available for use by instructors to allow complete flexibility for lecture presentations and assessment.
Effective clinical coverage. Saladin uses clinical examples and essays to show students the relevance of the concepts they are learning to their future career. Some topics Saladin addresses include: medical imaging techniques, gene therapy, carpal tunnel syndrome, Alzheimer disease, AIDS, Viagra, and hypertension.
