Learning and naming the many parts and systems of the human body can be a daunting task for students. This highly original book helps make learning a great deal easier. Arranged by body system, The Anatomy Student's Self-test Visual Dictionary contains over 500 full colour anatomical illustrations complete with leader lines and labels. The images are accompanied by concise definitions of body regions and parts as well as physiological processes. A workbook at the back of the book features digitally-created line illustrations of muscular and skeletal systems, so you can memorize the location of various muscles and bones by colouring-in the illustrations. Labels are left blank to test your knowledge of the names of the body parts and systems, with the answers given at the bottom of each page. Readers are encouraged to shade the illustrations in with coloured pencils. It's a simple physical task intended to imprint on students' memories the shape and location of each body part, making later visualization and memory retention much easier. The book also includes a set of eight transparent overlays illustrating the major body systems. They simulate the peeling away of layers of tissue to reveal anatomical features, such as muscles, bones, organs, and circulatory system. Use the coloured acetate overlay sheets of body systems to correlate the relationships between the different systems. The Anatomy Student's Self-test Visual Dictionary gives you a clear and concise understanding of human anatomy. This is a must-have learning tool for all students who require detailed anatomical knowledge.
