    Netter's vs Clinical Netter's

    Advertisements



    First off, what's the real difference?

    I imagine regular Netter's is a bit more comprehensive (the book is much bigger and thicker), but I'm not sure being that I only own the clinical one. Anyone know if I'll need to get the regular one as well for 1st semester Anatomy?

    As always, answers are much appreciated

    I got the Clinical one as a gift at the anatomy research conference we went to and met one of the authors :-). But for the anatomy course I would definitely definitely get the real Netter's.

    Yeah, the big Netter's is an actual Atlas which you need whereas the "Baby Netter's" is a kind of condensation containing key images and some clinical tid-bits based on those key images. I never used the small one as I found that BRS tended to have a more complete set of clinical information anyway. So BRS and big Netter's tended to be my main anatomy sources.

    I loved the clinical Netters, because I loved the clinical correlations. That being said, I got far more use out of my BRS flash cards than I did baby netters for class. You will need the big netters, and I along with the other posters, I recommend BRS (I liked the flash cards better than the book, YMMV).
    Suffering is optional.

    Baby netters for what you actually need to know after basic sciences, big netters for Anatomy.

    you definitely need the big netters. i agree with the guy above who talked about the brs flash cards. they were very useful for usmle review. the brs book is good for the course, but not good for the step because its too big for such a low yield area. lots of questions in there. clinical netters is nice to have because its portable so in case you go to the beach and want to look at it, its convienient. not 100% necessary
