    Im currently using moore's clinically oriented anatomy only. Should I also add another book to study for the anatomy course?

    I used Snell and Rohen (Netter is OK, but I liked Rohen better)

    Moore + BRS got me through it just fine. In addition, an Atlas of just pictures is helpful(your library likely has hundreds).

    If you're looking for anatomy textbooks, then Moore's Clinically Oriented Anatomy and BRS' Gross Anatomy are comprehensive and sufficient.
    If you're looking for an atlas, then Netter's has been a very helpful guide with excellent, clear illustrations.

    All the best!

    My favorite was Rohens atlas. Cadaver pictures and it was really easy to cover the labels and quiz myself.

    Rohen's is awesome. Get a old cheap grants off ebay that you can use at your table and can throw away at the end of the year.

    Between zero and one.

    You'll use the Netter a lot; Moore should fill in the gaps with any burning questions you have. It's not a very text-heavy subject, in my opinion.

    I used Moore's but focused on the pictures and captions. If there were any gaps I'd consult the text itself. I didn't really like Netter's since a) the pictures are not as good, and b) there's no text at all to guide you. Reading through the text in Moore's is overkill.
