Additional Features

Prepare for success

Chapter Quizzes and Practice Tests help you find out whether you're prepared for exams. Get Ready for A&P helps you prepare for your A&P course through Pre-Tests, Post-Tests with Study Plans, tutorials, animations, activities, and an integrated eText.

Wrong-answer feedback personalized for you

Using data gathered from all of the students using the program, Mastering offers wrong-answer feedback that is specific to you. Rather than simply providing feedback of the “right/wrong/try again” variety, Mastering guides you towards the correct final answer without giving the answer away.

Hints offer clear guidance

Mastering provides hints of two types that help you work through, and ultimately, solve problems. Declarative hints provide advice on how to approach the problem, guiding you to the final answer. Socratic hints break a problem down into smaller sub-problems, which makes it easier for you to complete the original problem.

Dynamic, engaging content

Using 3D animations, simulations, tutorials, and activities, Mastering utilizes engaging, interactive media to help you learn the toughest topics and succeed in your course.
