Study Guide for Pathophysiology, 6th Edition
The ultimate study tool to help you master pathophysiology! Corresponding to the chapters in the Pathophysiology, 6th Edition textbook, this study guide helps you review and practice the material with a variety of exercises and question types, including multiple choice, true/false, matching, fill in the blank, compare/contrast, and labeling. Thorough updates include nearly 50 case studies that provide real-life examples of how you will use pathophysiology in their careers.
- More than 1,500 questions in a variety of question types reinforce your understanding with multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank, and matching questions, plus labeling exercises and compare/contrast tables.
- Approximately 250 case study questions are included at the end of each unit, and rationales to the answers are provided in the answer key.
- Answer key is conveniently located in the back of the study guide.
- NEW! Thoroughly updated content matches the 6th edition of textbook.
