I would say that you don't really need the Moore book. They have it in the library to use.

Also, do not buy the high yield if you're buying the BRS for that subject. It's just a condensed version of the BRS. I would also not buy any of the MRS (made rediculously simple) series except for microbiology.

how about flash cards?

I definitely used the Netter's flashcards. It was nice to have them for me especially because then my wife could help me study and wasn't so lonely. I would definitely suggest getting them and you can always sell them to the next class when you're done. As far as other flashcards go, I find it's better to make your own. I use note-cards and it's an extra studying step while you're making them (even though it takes forever sometimes). It's a lot of work, but it will pay off.

there are flashcards for bones and muscles etc

are they useful?

I found them to be useful in conjunction with other notes and books. The cards alone will not suffice.
