Review

"These useful flashcards will undoubtedly help thousands of eager learners. They are of the highest quality and very practical. Not only will they help students during their courses, they will also help them review for the national boards. They would supplement any text or atlas that the student uses. I only wish these had been available when I was a medical student." -Doody's Book Review Service --This text refers to an alternate Cards edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Netter does it again Aug. 16 2002
Format:Cards
Netter's Anatomy Flash Cards offer a unique learning resource to supplement the anatomy textbook, atlas and/or dissector materials that any University would use. This set of cards draws upon the timeless medical illustrations of Frank Netter, and includes not only the musculoskeletal system, but also a review of important nerves, vessels, and visceral structures not found in traditional flash card sets. Each 4 x 6 full-color card details human anatomy and is organized regionally in accordance with Netter's widely popular Atlas of Human Anatomy and a list is provide stating which plate in the atlas corresponds to each flash card in this set. Each card includes a comment section that provides relevant information about the structure depicted on the front of the card (orgin, insertion, action, innervation, and anatomical relevance). These cards offer an accurate and ready source of anatomical information in an easy-to-use and portable format that also makes them ideal for self-examination and review no matter where you are (supermarket, bank, or coffee shop without carrying around a 3 pound book). The cards are organized as follows: Head & Neck - 81 cards, Back & Spinal Cord - 24 cards, Thorax - 26 cards, Abdomen - 27 cards, Pelvis & Perineum - 20 cards, Upper Limb - 64 cards, Lower Limb - 71 cards

3.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point July 4 2004
By A Customer
Format:Cards
I just finished my first year in medical school, and I thought these cards were a good starting point for studying. Often it's hard to motivate yourself to learn all the mundane details required in gross anatomy, and these flash cards were great to carry around on the bus and review during my commute.
However, these cards do not have all the information that is in the Netter's atlas or textbooks like Moore's Clinically Oriented Anatomy. These cards only review some bony landmarks, muscles, nerves, etc., but not all of them! So if you know these flash cards, don't fool yourself into thinking you know everything for your exam!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Netter will help me with PA school!! March 31 2004
Format:Cards
I start PA school very soon and will need these cards for full gross A&P lab, I am very impressed with these fairly inexpensive cards because Netters artwork is great and the insertion, action, and origin, and notes are on the back. Maybe this will help cut out time actually making cards? I hope so, as I know gross A&P is really tough for most people. The cards look like they are straight from Netter's Atlas, ah if only a real person was nicely color coded like Netter then all would be simpler!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intended for Review Oct. 3 2004
By E. Herrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
These flash cards are great. They are in full color (not all anatomy flash cards are created alike!) and include basic information about the body (ie the origin and insertion of muscles along with their importance). Remember, flash cards are meant for review, not for primary studying. You can turn these cards into a full study tool simply by adding information from Moore or any other anatomy text. We all want to cut corners, but using these cards alone won't do it (but they'll get you pretty close). I couldn't live without them. Couple them with Moore's Essential Anatomy and you have the perfect cocktail for success in Gross.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 Stars Really................. Jan. 19 2009
By MidwestMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
I went to the bookstore to buy some flash cards to help me study for my Anatomy & Physiology class (I am in a Nursing Program at a University). And, all of the boxes of Anatomy flash cards were sealed, so I chose this box based on the the number of cards that came in the box (over 300), the proudly proclaimed "online access", and also the fact that the cards are hole punched, and actually come with a ring to put the cards on.

Once I opened up the box, I was immediately disappointed. The cards are organized regionally.....NOT systematically. Which if you do not know what I am talking about, this means that rather than the flashcards being organized by organ system (i.e. skeletal system, cardiovascular system, etc), these cards are organized according to region such as, "Head and Neck" or "Abdomen". Now for those of you who are studying Anatomy by this regional approach, these cards might just do the trick.

However, for my Anatomy Class, (and all others that I am aware of), we are studying the body systematically.....The Skeletal System, The Reproductive System, The Endocrine System....etc, etc, etc...... I think this is how most Anatomy classes are arranged. However, with this deck of cards if your class is studying "The Skeletal System", you will need to go through all 7 different "regions" in this deck to pick out all the cards relating to the Skeletal System. Very inconvenient.

The next thing I noticed is that this deck does NOT contain any of the Integumentary System (Hair/Skin/Nails)!! I expected to find flashcards with diagrams of the skin, a hair follicle, a sagittal view of a fingernail, etc....but there were none! But, my disappointment did not end there...I went online to register this product to take advantage of the "online access" that is advertised all over the box. I was expecting some interactive learning material...but guess what? All the online access is, are the flashcards all over again, but on your computer. There is nothing new on the site that I could find. So once again, I was let down by this purchase.

Here are a few pros---The illustrations are very well done, the cards themselves have a quality, almost laminated feel to them, and the holes punched in the corner, and the included ring are indeed quite handy.

If you are taking an Anatomy Class, and want flash cards organized in a systematic way, that include ALL of the body systems (as well as cards with regional/directional terms), then you need to get "Kaplan Medical Anatomy Flashcards". I went back to the bookstore, and bought those, and they have fit my needs perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only flashcards worth buying July 10 2007
By Catherine Hallberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
I bought and returned several other sets of flashcards and was pretty disgusted with the possibility of ever finding a set worth carrying around. I consulted my TA for an upper division Human Anatomy class who suggested these. Before they came I was able to find Netter's Atlas and was very impressed, so I hoped the flashcards would be as good. They are indeed excellent- clearly illustrated and clearly labeled. There is enough information on each cord that they can serve for studying several functional groups, eliminating the need to have a HUGE deck of cards. The illustrations are a subset of the Atlas so is possible to use them together- learning a greater set of structures in the larger illustrations, then studying on the go with the smaller cards.

The illustrations are so detailed that I was able to find some structures illustrated on these that were impossible to find in any other books or anywhere online. Nicely complete, even if they aren't structures you may need to know for a given course.
