    What do you guys think about the Netter Collection of color illustrations? It's a 13 book set. I think the latest edition is the 1994. Most libraries have older editions. I'm looking into getting my own set. Is it worth it?

    No, but the 1-book set is good to have.

    What on earth makes you think you need a 13-book set of it? Do you ever plan on actually reading that sort of volume?

    i bought two sets. one to use and one to keep in its original foil packaging to retain its value as a collectors' item.

    but seriously. you only want the Atlas of Anatomy. other useful ones for various classes include the devo one and the neuro one, but check those out at the library.

    Although I desperately wanted to buy some yellow disposable coveralls and show up with a few friends at the Devo finals with the coveralls and sunglasses.

    I got a copy of the Netter CD during gross anatomy. It was all that I really needed.

    Ooooooh, I think the "med students of genius" videos have taken a back seat!

    I think the Netter collection would be a lovely thing to own, in the same way that a fully restored 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster (navy blue with cream top) would be lovely to own. Neither serves a purpose beyond being a deeply enjoyable thing of beauty.
