Coloring Atlas of the Human Body provides a comprehensive overview of human anatomy and physiology for visually-oriented and kinesthetic learners. By coloring a series of specially designed diagrams and the accompanying flashcards, students will learn and remember concepts much more effectively than with traditional textbooks alone. The completed coloring exercises and flashcards can also serve as tools to review and prepare for examinations.
A companion Website includes two additional coloring exercises and bonus study and test taking tips.
