    Question for Anatomy Exam 1

    Advertisements



    Anyone knows what type of questions are on the anatomy exam covering Upper and Lower Limb and also the Back. I heard there are going to be 50 multiple choice question, 42 dry lab questions, and 8 cadavera question??? Is this correct? Also what is the best source to study for the exam...

    You should have attended the Mock Exam. I dont know the breakup of the exam but MCQ are clinical questions, ppt (identification) questions, and wet lab.


    Best source to study from is Dr. H's notes. Best source in my opinion. Once you read his notes, read over Moore. I have not touched BRS except for BRS's questions.

    It seems like whomever you asks tells you that a different source is the best source. My suggestion is to find what works best for you. However I'm confused because we were told it was all MCQ, is that incorrect? Are there short answer/fill-ins as well?

    all multiple choice...the mock is fill in the blank just to make it a little harder - so you learn it.

    Okay, that's what I had originally thought. Thank you.

    What I would like to know is that is there more emphasis on the Upper limb then the Lower limb or is it equal? I ask because we did spend more time on the on the upper limb then the lower. Dr. H outlined all nerves and arteries and went in detail.

    i feel like there may have been slightly more questions on upper limb just because there are much more that could be asked clinically about the brachial plexus and stuff than lower limb. the lower limb is important though so make sure do spend some time with it, especially around the knee and foot because those are two problem areas.

    we also had pelvis on our exam on top of upper limb, back and lower limb so we got about 15 questions from that. i know you guys don't have that on your exam. you could always just ask Dr. H...he should tell you. he would rather tell you himself about how the test is structured that by going what other students say, especially on here

    i ignore all the speculation and rumors going around.
    strictly from the guy making the exam (dr. h), expect between 38-42 questions from adam's and 8-12 wet lab questions. all multiple choice.

    the written part is going to be multiple choice clinical questions.
    you should be able to nail 50/50 identification questions and only get a couple of the clinicals wrong.

    at this point if you haven't learned all the material don't bother. between studying for anatomy and dps you're going to fall behind, so focus on the high yield stuff.

    the stuff i know COLD includes the brachial plexus and all the innervated muscles, joints, common fractures of bones, artery anastomoses, all the possible clinical questions. for the back i would know all the muscles, differing features of the cervical/thoraic/lumbar vertebrae, the structure of the vertebrae, and the layers over the spinal cord. clinicals include the abnormal curvatures, spina bifida, automobile accidents, and lumbar punctures/epidural blocks. lower limb...you should get the gist.

    as has been said over and over in class, they'll try to get you on the exceptions. focus on the few muscles in each compartment that have different nerve innervations or different functions, such as the flexor carpi ulnaris in the ant. comp. of the forearm and the brachioradialis. expect questions like "all of the muscles in the anterior comp are innervated by the median EXCEPT..."

    this is the best guess i can make as to what to expect from all the info that's been floating around. just use common sense and exercise good test taking skills.

    i haven't touched BRS except for the questions. i read baby moore a few times to learn the material and the PDFs/class notes.

    i probably missed a lot of stuff but i'm not wasting time going through all my notes to list everything. this should give you an idea of how to prepare.

    good luck and don't fail

    oh, for the other powermemorizers out there, here's the site i've been using

    First Year Notes - Human Anatomy

    i know most people like to learn the material, but i can straight up memorize it in about 1/3 of the time. i make mnemonics for just about everything and just blindly memorize. the reason it helps on tests is because when you're pressed for time you can't really sit there and draw out structures to reason out whats going on. memorizing and recalling takes a millisecond and you can move on to the next question.

    anyway i hope that helped.

    and here's all the lower limb crap dr. ******* went over yesterday. she claimed she was going to make a mention of the high yield stuff we should expect, but at the end of it all she basically went over everything :\
    pardon the cursing i tend to do that in my notes

    review basically HIGH YIELD

    piriformis used as landmark to name sup/inf gluteal vessels.
    know what passes through greater/lesser sciatic foramen
    vessels going below piriformis inc: sciatic, post lat cut nerve, etc
    piriformis muscle occupies most of the greater sciatic foramen. the sup gluteal nerve goes through the sup part of the GSF, and vice versa for inf glut nerve
    clunial nerves
    components of sciatic = tibial/ common peroneal
    know course of sciatic in glut region (below piri over post aspect of lat rotators and into thigh under biceps ferm and adductor magnus)
    sciatic nerve variations and injury - spasm of piri can compress nerve. its vulnerable during *** injections
    intragluteal injection = high yield
    hamstrings make up post thigh. short head of biceps fem gets innervation from common peroneal
    know boundaries of popliteal fossa and order in which its structures appear.

    arterial blood supply of knee genicular anastomosis
    branches of popliteal artery into fibular/tibial aspects
    hip joint know extrinsic ligaments (pubofemoral/ischiofem/iliofem). know arterial blood supply into head of femur. nerve supply to same muscles responsible for moving hip. main blood supply to head of femur is MED FEM CIRCUMFLEX and some from lat fem circumflex.
    fractures of hip joint
    subdivisions of thigh muscles and functions. ant = flexors. medial = adductors, post = hammies.
    femoral triangle high yield. laterally to med u have fem nerve, fem artery, fem vein in sheath. boundaries of it. boundaries of fem canal (inguineal liga, post the pectineus, lat the sartorius)
    adductor canal what passes through it to get to adductor hiatus, art/nerve supply to muscles in the ant/medial comp of leg.
    relation of epigastric to femoral canal. the varient of the obturator ar. can come off the inf epigastric and can get injured in femoral hernias.
    knee joint they focus on the unhappy triad of injuries. rupture of MCL, ACL, MM. can have isolated injuries w/i knee joint, can have bursitis, but they tend to focus on triad. know func of ACL/PCL. the MCL helps prevent abduction, LCL prevents adduction at knee joint.
    they like to ask about func of popliteus.
    genu varum/valgum. varum = bowlegged, valgum = knockknee
    know bones of the foot which form the arches. know keystones of arches. know funcs/parts of deltoid liga (stabilizes ankle joint during eversion), lateral collateral liga, (stabilizes during inversion). know ligs that help to maintain the arches HIGH YIELD
    dorsalis pedis artery in foot
    for the leg they'll ask about injuries to nerves to diff comps. foot drop is dmg to common peroneal before it branches. deep peroneal to ant, superficial to lat comp. divisions of tibial nerve in plantar surface of foot
