Anatomy and Physiology CD ROM

  1. Now that I am out of school and working, I am taking time to read anatomy again; purchased a simpler book on the subject that covers the main points without all of the hoop ha. I am now beginning to really appreciate how comprehending anatomy is good with understanding the disease processes and medications. This is much better than just memorizing to pass at the moment. Doing this without the pressure of school is great for me. I got a B in the class without really understanding much, and getting a book that does not take pages and pages just to make a point was the best idea (should have done this while I was still in school).

    What I want to know is; is there an anatomy and physiology CD ROM that I can purchase that will explain some of the processes in the body such as muscle contration, metabolism (that is a big deal for me) and such? I am trying to get the picture in my mind of what is really happening. Pictures usually work for me, but seeing something in motion would probably be even better.

    Thanks:spin:

    I am interested too--applying to graduate school and I just know I'm going to need some refreshing!

    I think you can try www.myaandp.com I have access through the class I am taking right now. You may be able to purchase access through them directly. It is worth a try. Good luck.

    I just tried it.

    You can "buy access" but they still want you to have a code associated with a textbook or a class in which you are enrolled.

    Thanks, though! I appreciate the thought!

    I just found this at Amazon, along with a few others. I will probably order this one. It is best for me to see demonstrations of physiology in order to understand better. From the cell to metabolism. It is one thing to read it, (even though my book is explaining it simply) and another to actually work through your head the process. I hope that this helps you, too, chris at lucas RN.

    I used this one- it covers all body systems and followed the text almost in the order of books. Made studying easy and I could listen in the car and play while I was sleeping abd getting ready in the am. I have it on a 2 CD set and would recommend it.

    Is there a CD ROM where you can actually see interactive demonstrations of what is discussed in the books included? Thanks!

    No, it is all audio

    Here is the website from the place where I bought my software. It is a company called A.D.A.M. These are INCREDIBLE. completely user friendly and totally interactive. I LOVE LOVE LOVE mine.

    Anatomy

    Physiology

    These are not just for the basic, although it explains things simple enough someone not familiar can follow and learn. These are actually used by the college I am looking at for taking getting my masters in nursing.

    Good luck..

    p.s. make sure you are looking at the single student price not the instructor or class prices...

    What book did you buy to help you understand? I have to do some self-studying on anatomy and physiology because I flew by the class. Thanks.

    Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology by Valerie Scanlon and Tina Sanders, along with the workbook was my recent purchase. It did make things easier to comprehend, for the most part, but I want to see the physiology of how things work to get a better picture in my mind. I also had Memmler's Anatomy and Physiology, but can't find the name of the author of that one.
