    ANATOMY CLASS Resources

    Advertisements



    I would like to start a thread in which current/former students can help us "newbies" to UAG understand and prepare better for this particular class which is supposed to be one of the hardest in any medical school . What kind of study methods did you use? how many hours per day to study? are the tests and books correlated? did you use FA to prepare for test and class? comments on the teachers, are they good or bad? style of teaching? ways to improve performance on test but at the same time learning the material? lets keep it specific to anatomy in this thread so that we can "dissect" at least the first semester classes. thanks

    I hold the record for least amount of time studying... and still passing. However, I have had all this before in undergrad.

    First note of advice. It is a lot of memorization. Many, many students made use of the Netter flash cards. Buy them on eBay or locally and bring them with you. Other books, buy used or copies here, but bring the cards.

    Second note. I will compile a CD of a lot of what helped me. See me when you get here.

    Yes, acgt is right...memorization is the key. I used BRS, Netter, class notes and if I had time I read Moore.

    Editions

    Does it make too much difference ( within reason) which edition one buys.
    For example Netter's previous edition is much cheaper than a new edition.
    After all I would assume anatomy has not changed much
    in the past 10 years ?!?
    Does one have to buy the newest reprint or will old books be sufficient since there are also class notes,board review material etc; that would augment the studying process ?

    You can use the previews. The new books might have new neumonics or clearer pictures. But read, see the bodies and memorize and memorize. If you cover the material well from this class and memorize the major arteries in head, extremities, etc. Step 1 will be a lot easier for sure.

    So, for the Netter's flash cards, does the edition we buy matter? Should I purchase the 2006 edition? Thanks!

    I have no idea what is different from each edition. I do not think any new body parts have been discovered and added :P I would assume they print a run of cards, and consider each new run an edition (like a "printing" or edition in some books. They may have changed something, but if they did, I do not know what. If they "old" ones are cheap, get them.
