Anatomy and Physiology Made Incredibly Visual! by Lippincott Williams & WilkinsAnatomy & Physiology Made Incredibly Visual is an innovative new reference that brings clinical subjects to life using a vivid, graphic presentation. Like the Incredibly Easy series, the Incredibly Visual series takes difficult clinical topics and presents them in a clear, concise, easy-to-understand manner. The highly visual nature of this book makes anatomy and physiology fundamentals accessible to the reader in a unique and interesting way that enables quick review and comprehension as well as practical application. For each body system, the book logically first presents anatomic fundamentals necessary to understand the complex physiology of the body. Then physiologic processes are presented more visually than ever before. This new approach to clinical content maximizes the power of visual thinking by getting readers as close to the clinical content as they can get without actually being in the room with a patient. Complex ideas are broken down into their component parts, with each component made unmistakably simple in appealingly colorful and graphic ways. Readers will read less, understand more, and see things more clearly than ever before. A companion website is available with fully-searchable text.

See what students are saying about the previous edition... Increased my score significantly. "If you're in nursing school you know mental health has a lot of gray areas. It's not like pharm or Med surg where it's 'this is right, and this is wrong'. This book helped me SIGNIFICANTLY to understand WHY certain answers were correct/incorrect. It helped me to think critically a different way than I'm used to. I failed my first mental health test. The second & third test after that I got OVER 90%. I did all the questions in this book under the section we were learning; read through the notes ONCE. And that's IT. DEFINITELY get this book if you're struggling in mental health or afraid of what's to come in mental health. Best decision I've made in nursing school so far."--Chelsey S. Online Reviewer Five Stars. "Made an A this semester in my mental health rotation."--Alana G., Online Reviewer The rationales are the reason I love the books in the Davis Success series. Very helpful. Med-Surg Success was really helpful to me, so I decided to buy the mental health version for my current semester, and I am not disappointed."--Lynn C., Online Reviewer Use this exceptional resource with your current book or combine it with Mary Townsend and Karyn Morgan's psychiatric nursing texts.
