Product Description


Doody's Review Service -- "This is the ideal book to accompany human cadaver dissections... The book has extensive clinically relevant information and is so well organized that it should provide support for practicing healthcare professionals throughout their career. This edition has an expanded introductory chapter on systemic anatomy, with significantly improved coverage of the autonomic nervous system, a complicated area that new students often have particular difficulty with. The use of clinical "Blue Boxes" has expanded with descriptions of pathology, injuries, and clinical procedures that are relevant to the anatomy being discussed. These blue boxes are one of the longtime highlights and strengths of the book which have been increased in number and strengthened with illustrations. Summaries called the "Bottom Line" have been added that at times are useful take home messages, though occasionally the sentences end up being lengthy and a bit run-on. Students will most likely find these useful when reviewing material prior to exams. The number of illustrations now rivals some anatomy atlases. Many of the illustrations will be very useful to both readers and teachers because they efficiently drive home key points or relationships that are clinically relevant. Some embryology has been added, which is very useful. With this fifth edition, Clinically Oriented Anatomy, the gold standard North American human anatomy text has risen substantially in value. The authors are to be congratulated on this superb anatomical text that is ideally suited to learning and teaching human anatomy for healthcare providers." Weighted Numerical Score: 98 - 5 Stars

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Pre-medical Buy!!! Sept. 2 2003
I thought this book was amazing!! It was my first medical school textbook. I flipped through the pages, glassy-eyed, realizing that this was what I had been working for!
Unfortunately, 2 years later, I ahve still not had the time to do more than use it as a reference book! I am hoping to read the entire thing sometime before retirement! Don't get me wrong, it is a great book, and I highly recommend it for medical students. However, looking back, I wish I had bought it BEFORE I came to medical school. Having the time to read the entire book, and learn the material would have been an incredible asset! Premedical students often wonder what they could be doing to prepare themselves for medical school. Buying this book and reading it would be high on my recommendation list!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rave review for Moore anatomy book Dec 29 1999
I thoroughly enjoyed studying anatomy with the Moore's book. The illustrations are great--I especially found the individual drawings of the leg and arm muscles helpful, and the 3-D drawings of the pelvic region helped me to better visualize this complex area. I was able to study most of the time from Moore and only had to use the Color Atlas of Anatomy as a reference.
The text was clearly written and very detailed. At times, it was more detailed than my first year anatomy class, but I was able to skip or skim these sections. I don't think I ever found Moore to be lacking in information.
I found the boxes highlighting attachments, function, or distribution for nerves, vessels, and muscles to be very helpful. They proved to be a quick reference.
Finally, the blue boxes with clinical information made anatomy so much more interesting. I learned many relevant facts and applied, clinical anatomy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moore's Anatomy text is a standard; rightfully so March 21 2001
I am a medical student at Texas A&M USHSC COM. Moore's is an excellent text for basic anatomy. They have included excellent drawings and the content is complete. Added bonuses to the text include insightful clinical correlation and appropriate embryological try-ins. The text appears wordy and most medical students will try to use a review book in its stead. This would be a mistake. Students who read Moore will retain more anatomy all the way into clinicals and will be ahead of their peers who did not. Overall this is a very fine text: best used in conjunction with Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy and Langman's Medical Embryology. *I will mention here, in fact, that the embryo text by Moore (The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology) does not meet the same high standard and is wrought with errors.

3.0 out of 5 stars well... not good in some points. Sept. 7 1999
Moore's new edition is well illustrated and contains good clinical commets and contents. But it is not a reference book, but a textbook. A textbook must be portable and easy to handle. But Moore's 4th edition is worse than 3th in this point. It is too big to carry, and its softcover is easy to fragile. To be a better textbook, Moore's new edition needs size-reducing in using smaller font and smaller illustrations. If this impossible, it is to be published in two volumes. And It is to be published in hardcover edition.(to be a more portable textbook.) I want a good textbook easy to carry everywhere.. I don't want a reference book like Gray's..
P.S.: The cover design is worse than 3rd edition. More beautiful design is needed.(like Rohen's book)

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb text, not so great pictures June 29 2000
I used Moore's as an adjunct to studying anatomy with Netter's atlas of anatomy. I found that the text was concise, lucid, and enjoyable to read, with pertinent and important clinical examples in the form of case presentations.
The illustrations, on the other hand, are from Grant's atlas of anatomy, and occasionally are confusing or downright obfuscating (the anterior and posterior triangles of the neck come to mind.) So I recommend reading the text, but referring to Netter's atlas when referring to pictures!

2.0 out of 5 stars Way too many errors in the text Aug. 10 2001
By A Customer
My medical school must have ordered an edition that hadn't been proof read. We spent more time going over the errors in the book than anything else. Half way thru the class, I was using it for a doorstop. Graphics and diagrams reversed, ugh, bad news on a test! I think I should get my money refunded. As for Atlases, I used both Netter's and Grants, both were great but Netters is perfection. One thing that was good with the Moore and Dalley text was the "blue boxes" with clinical correlations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for anatomy April 23 2003
By A Customer
I am a med student and found this book very helpful for my gross anatomy class. I also used the following which I also bought on amazon.com:
Spinal Anatomy Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers
(ISBN: 0971999600)
This study guide helped me to prepare for the type of questions on my gross anatomy tests. I was introduced to this book by my friend in another med school who also found it very helpful for his anatomy class. I used both books to get a B+ in my anatomy classes.

I thing this is the perfect book for those who don't want to spend hours readind descriptive anatomy from books like Rouviere or Latarjet. But if you are counting only on this book, you're in a big mistake, cause' sometimes there's no way you can imagine what's the book trying to say, about the lacation, the function, or anything, without an Atlas or something like that.
So you must at least study with this and a nice atlas (maybe Netter o Yokochi), so you can follow the lecture.
