Can anyone tell me what the best anatomy and/or physiology software is to supplement medical school classes. Primal and A.D.A.M. seem to have great 3D anatomy and physiology software programs. There is also the Acland Human Anatomy Dissection Series DVD's, the software that comes with the Netter book, and finally Biovere's anatomica 3-D. Any recommendations? Has anyone tried any of these products Here are a few websites that sell and provide a description of the products. I know some of them can be expensive, but which ones are best?

Acland's pretty good, usually worth the time - try to snag it from the library or split the cost with classmates.

Everything else is pretty much eye candy, IMO. Not bad to have, but definitely not necessary. Netter CD could potentially be useful for studying but software is poorly designed. ADAM is too cartoon-like to be very useful.

If you don't already have them, probably way more useful than any of these is a copy of Rohen and Gross Anatomy BRS.
