Summary "Based on content from Ganong's Review of Medical Physiology, Twenty-Fifth Edition, the world's leading text on human physiology, this authoritative new resource delivers a clear, concise review of the subject's fundamental concepts, backed by more than 350 Q & A with detailed answer explanations, and numerous full-color illustrations. With the goal of creating a targeted, yet comprehensive review of medical physiology for the USMLE and coursework, the authors of this powerful new resource have streamlined the content of the Ganong's Review of Medical Physiology, Twenty-Fifth Edition to facilitate study and learning, carefully retaining the most high-yield concepts and illustrations. The authors have skillfully reworked the self-study questions from the parent text so they are consistent with the clinical vignette style found on the USMLE, and have also included many new questions. In addition, every question comes with a comprehensive explanation of why the correct answer is right or wrong, and why the distractors are wrong. This fosters a conceptual understanding of physiology, rather than simply reinforcing memorization. You will also find valuable study aids such as learning objectives, key terms, and end-of-chapter summaries and questions"--Publisher's description
