Help your students learn and master pathophysiology! Corresponding to the chapters in Pathophysiology: The Biologic Basis for Disease in Adults and Children, 8th Edition, this study guide offers practical activities to help students review and remember basic pathophysiology. Interactive questions provide students with a working knowledge of disease etiology and disease processes – giving them practice applying what they’ve learned to clinical practice.

    • Practice exams provide immediate feedback by helping you understand the rationale behind each answer.
    • More than 1,200 questions cover all areas of pathophysiology.
    • Over 40 case scenarios provide real-world examples of how pathophysiology is used in the clinical setting, helping you apply and integrate knowledge.
    • Concise chapter summaries highlight need-to-know information and help you to quickly review content.
    • Answer key found in the back of the study guide, allows you to check answers and evaluate your progress.
    • NEW! More than 20 new illustrations appear in active learning activities to engage visual learners
    • NEW! Thoroughly revised and updated information mirrors content from the 8th edition of the Pathophysiology textbook.
