"Anatomy Recall, Second Edition" has everything you need for fast learning and recall - and nothing you don't. You won't find a better, more efficient or effective way to master the basics of anatomy. University of Michigan Medical School) for Doody's Medical Review, David W. Brzezinski, MD -- This question-and-answer formatted anatomy book is aimed at professional students seeking to understand the basics of anatomy without succumbing to the sheer volume of material that is typical of most medical gross anatomy texts...Speaking as a former medical student and as a current gross anatomy instructor, this book is much needed. It, indeed, makes anatomy accessible to the professional student, and it does so in a memorable manner...Since most of the authors have experienced medical school first-hand, their background and understanding are second to none. The combination of basic science and clinical pearls is well balanced, accurate, and engaging. (University of Michigan Medical School) for Doody's Medical Review, David W. Brzezinski, MD -- Perhaps the greatest strength of the book is its complete yet concise style. It manages to accurately cover a very broad and complex field of study while limiting its scope to the most important and clinically relevant aspects. Of particular value are the clinical pearls which are inserted at relevant points in the text. Such pearls not only serve to teach students clinical concepts, they also reinforce the basic anatomy in a memorable way. The valuable embryology section is located toward the end of the book... I found the book amazingly manageable for students and of appropriate depth. It is extremely practical for professional students and it can be used all the way through their residency (and beyond). I highly recommend it for any professional student, and only wish that I had such a valuable resource when I was a medical student. It should find its way into many a white coat pocket!
