    Hi!

    I haven't taken Anatomy yet and I was going to try to learn some of the material this summer before classes start. Do you know of any good books that will be helpful and easy to understand?

    Thanks!

    abs,

    I would find out which texts are 'required' or 'recommnded'for the course at your school. That would save you the cost of having to buy another book in the fall.

    However, the best thing to do this summer is to relax and have a good time. [​IMG]

    You will be up to your belly button in anatomy soon enough! So be sure to take some time for yourself this summer. You'll be glad that you did.

    Congrats on being asccepted! Where are you going to go?

    First, I wnat to echo what the above poster said -------------> RELAX & ENJOY YOUR LAST SUMMER OFF FOR A WHILE!!

    However, if you'd like a personal recommendation on anatomy text choices:

    Textbook: Moore's Clinical Anatomy
    Atlas: Netter's Atlas <he is God>
    Rohen & Yokochi's Atlas <amesome atlas where all the figures are actual dissected cadavers---gives a more realistic picture of wht you are searching for>

    I read Moore & Daley. It wasn't particularly helpful, though interesting.

    All you really need for the study of Gross Anatomy is a Netter's and a BRS Gross Anatomy Review book by Chung. You're set.

    turtleboard,

    Did you ever see, or did you have, a copy of Rohen, Yokochi and Lutjen-Drecoll (Color Atlas of Anatomy)? I used Netter, Moore-Dalley too.

    Thanks for all of the help everyone! [​IMG]

    bDOc03, I am going to PCOM this fall. I was going back and forth between PCOM and UHS for awhile, but PCOM won out because it's close to home.

    take care,

    I think it is definitely in your best interest to get the Moore text book!!! Yes, it is a huge and monster of a book, but you will be thankful that you bought it. When it comes to tables and organization of the information, this book really kicks butt! So buy it, and use it because it is a great resource. I also agree that Netter and Rohen also are awesome.
