Fall 2012 Anatomy Classes – Books and Supplies!

It’s that time again – beginning of school. Excited, nervous students. Back to school supplies and $$$ Books.  I’ll let you check the prices, as they change all the time, but here are books either required or recommended for the classes I teach.  The books you need depend on where you have me and who/if I have assistant/lab instructors. Feel free to comment to help your classmates!


If your class is a Lecture-Lab Combo, check the bookstore – we use a custom textbook from Pearson (based on Marieb’s Anatomy textbook). Otherwise, read on, and click on the link to see the book:

Tortora & Nielson. Human Anatomy, 12th ed., 2012, Wiley

  • Loose-leaf, binder-ready volume, ISBN 978-1-118-43848-0
  • Bound textbook,  ISBN 978-047056705 = http://snipurl.com/tortoraanat
  • RealAnatomy DVD strongly recommended – see if you can get it bundled with the text

Labs – remember to check who your lab instructor is, before you buy/rent!
