Product Description:

Fundamentals of Athletic Training, Second Edition,is the perfect tool for introducing student assistants to the athletic training profession. Significantly updated and reorganized from the first edition—formerly titled Athletic Training for Student Assistants—the text is written for the high school level and will help students gain an understanding of the functions, skills, and activities of athletic training that they may observe from day to day while assisting certified athletic trainers. The text now includes an exceptional Primal Pictures CD-ROM to help young students get a head start on the basics of structural and functional anatomy.

Offered in a hardback binding, the new edition has been completely reorganized to provide a more logical progression of the content for easier comprehension. The material is presented in nine units to follow typical high school course formatting and has been expanded with new content covering anatomy, tissue injuries, primary assessment, protective equipment, nutrition, weight control, and the athletic training profession. In addition, the visual features of the text have been improved. Now with more than 300 figures, tables, and photographs to illustrate key points, techniques, and anatomical details, the text is an even more stimulating and useful reference.

The second edition is packaged with a new Primal Pictures software product titled Essentials of Interactive Functional Anatomy (IFA Essentials).This CD-ROM will help students thoroughly review components of structural anatomy with a complete high-resolution 3-D model of the human musculature. The model can be rotated and allows for 11 layers of anatomy to be visually removed—from muscles down to bones. The CD-ROM also includes 34 animations—each of which can be viewed from four different angles—showing clinical muscle function and providing students with a strong sense of the movement and motions around joints. To reinforce the content, IFA Essentialsalso offers an interactive quiz. Students can select the level of difficulty and number of quiz questions, and then by using a multiple-choice format they can identify or locate various structures on the model.

Fundamentals of Athletic Training, Second Edition,also has many features that will help students learn and absorb the material throughout the course. Objectives are included for each chapter to help students focus their learning, and real-life stories of athletic injuries help to illustrate how certified athletic trainers apply concepts. To spur class discussion, each chapter includes a special “What would you do if . . .'” section. Additional tidbits of information are also provided in FYI (for your information) segments. The revised instructor guide and test bank make delivering the course easy for instructors.

Fundamentals of Athletic Training, Second Edition,presents a comprehensive introduction to the world of athletic training. The text provides students with valuable exposure to the role of a certified athletic trainer and prepares them for a possible career in this exciting and challenging field.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
