To my friend, Kevin Patton, for graciously responding to all my authoring questions along the way. Pages are more worn from previous use. Krieger has taught courses in human anatomy and physiology, general biology, and general chemistry to students in the United States and abroad.
Each module has a text page on the left with corresponding illustrations on the facing page. Two-dimensional icon—Indicates a two-dimensional view of an anatomical structure. This allows students to learn not only though self-quizzing but also through the process of rewriting the correct information in the labeling areas.
