The use of this book and the process of coloring the body and its systems is one of the best ways to learn and memorize anatomical details and nomenclature. Apologia suggests using Kaplan’s Anatomy Coloring Book, 8th Edition, with our Exploring Creation with Advanced Biology, 2nd Edition curriculum, as it offers realistic drawings, easy-to-understand descriptions, and important terms for an effective way to learn human anatomy. Many college and medical students use this book in their human anatomy courses. The page design ensures there are no back-to-back layouts of the coloring pages. This new 8th edition has additional Learning Hints, which provide word associations and other mnemonics to help you remember the material.
While the 8th edition coloring book is 100% compatible with the Exploring Creation with Advanced Biology, 2nd Edition curriculum, the page numbers in the Coloring Book Exercises in the textbook were set using an earlier edition. The new 8th edition has a slightly altered pagination. We have created a compatibility chart as a reference to find the corresponding pages for each Coloring Book Exercise in the curriculum. You can find a pdf document on our website in the FAQ Knowledge Base under the Curriculum Support category for Advanced Biology, that you can print off for convenient reference.
