I bought this last year, after we'd already completed one quarter of anatomy that included the musculature. So, I don't know how handy it would have been for that.
However, during thoracic and abdominal stuff...it was priceless and I loved it! I think I paid 60-70 bucks (with shipping) or somewhere around there.
We are talking about the ADAM Interactive atlas, right? Also, be sure that you aren't ordeing the 'teacher' edition...order the Student edition. From what I could tell, they are identical, but the teacher edition costs much more because of copyright stuff.
Also, this CD is NOT burnable. At least, I couldn't get it to burn. I know there are techies out there who could probably get around it, though.
I have the ADAM series (there is more than one) yet never had the time to play with it (time = limiting factor; go figure in med school).
I do play with Netter's Clinical CD a bunch. Good for musculature and blood supply. Great labels plus you can print/view plates without labels for self-testing. Another bonus, it's easily burnable (moral-issues aside).
