Basic Concepts in Embryology: A Student's Survival Guide
McGraw Hill Professional, 1998 - Medical - 443 pages
Does the massive amount of information involved in your study of embryology overwhelm you? If so, let Basic Concepts in Embryology organize and condense the material to help you master - not just memorize - the stages of human development and the step-by-step evolution of organ systems from embryonic layers. The focus is on those topics that students have identified as "most difficult" to grasp. Using simple, jargon-free language you'll fully understand the material and feel comfortable applying it. Unlike the conventional textbook or review book, Basic Concepts in Embryology has just one goal: to innovatively review the toughest concepts in embryology for maximum comprehension in a short period of time.
