    Clinically Oriented Anatomy-How important?

    Advertisements



    I understand that Moore's Clinically Oriented Anatomy is a huge book with a lot of information. I was just wondering how much of this a med student is required to learn, considering it is extremely long. Is it more of a reference or do you need to wade through the whole thing. Any info about this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    my experience

    Well, Moore's is a great reference, and there have been students who've taken the time to read through it for every block exam (a couple of times); however, most students over the past 2 semesters haven't used it for more than a reference. The profs notes in anatomy are really good, and if you do have a question about something- you can ask or go to the library where they have a few Moore's you can reference. I liked Moore, but after the first few blocks, I was bogged down in notes from the prof and the book- so I went for what was going to be tested on (the notes).

    Moore's is a really great book and the blue boxes are key to understanding the clinical associations in anatomy- so buy the book if you really think you need the extra detail. (But that's just my opinion.)

    moore clinical

    I wouldnt bother buying the book now.. there are quite a lot of big Moore in the library that you can borrow. Try borrowing in the library first for the first semester and if you really like it then buy it later on. Plus every semester there always a lot students who are trying to sell their big moore...so if you want buy it here....Dont worry you wont need it to pass the class. The prof notes are really good. But do get the netter.....

    I agree. I do use my Essential Clinical Anatomy book, also by Moore quite a bit. It has good illustrations and the blue boxes that the big moore book has.

    Clinically Oriented Anatomy is a good book...you just need to follow the diagrams and the table in there, read the class notes and look at the netters atlas...
