Wiley Visualizing media guides students
through the chapter
The content of Wiley
Visualizing Anatomy and Physiology
gives students a variety of approaches—visuals, words,
illustrations, interactions, and assessments—that work together to
provide students with a guided path through the content. But this
path isn't static: It can be personalized, customized, and extended
to suit individual needs, and so it offers students flexibility as to how
they want to study and learn the content.
