Product description

This new Study Guide for Athletic Training students provides a framework to begin certification examination preparation. Students will use this to focus their study as a part of a preparation program. The outline format allows students to look over chapters at a glance to determine potential deficiencies in recall. The text mimics the current Board of Certification (BOC) examination format and focuses exclusively on the 12 NATA Educational Competencies as the framework. The text also offers the reader a concise look at anatomy and physiology with many tables and pictures for the visual learner. The book is the only BOC examination preparation guide that includes content with the 2000+ questions. There is an accompanying interactive DVD-ROM that includes videos, animations, images, interactive quizzes, labeling exercises, supplemental content, and more.
