Reading list and Bibliography

We acknowledge the following publications for illustrations used throughout the course notes:

  • Ross & Wilson Anatomy and Physiology – In Health and Illness
  • Anatomica The Complete Home Medical Reference
  • Memmler & Wood Structure & Function of the Human Body
  • Black’s Medical Dictionary
  • Kasner & Tindall Baillières Nurses Dictionary

We recommend you refer to the course notes in conjunction with at least:

  • A & P reference book such as ‘Structure and Function of the Body’ by Thibodeau & Patton
  • Black’s Medical Dictionary

You will also find the internet a valuable source of information for Anatomy & Physiology as well as Pathology. There are many books on the market; look around and find those that you feel comfortable with. Don’t get books that are too technical or you will become swamped with information.


As outlined in Module One, at the end of each topic, it is advisable to re-read and make notes or drawings to aid the memory. There are ‘quick quizzes’ included to aid learning. You can do these to check your knowledge; they are not to be handed in for marking.

We recommend you keep a journal of your work; this is a good way of monitoring where you have found information, which books you have used and what pages to look at if you should want that information again.

We recommend you read a good Anatomy and Physiology reference book to provide more detailed explanations.
