I searched the internet trying to find surgical instrument flashcards, and came across these. I bought this set to help myself learn the basic general surgical instruments for an RN OR program I am taking. I find that all of the basic instruments I need to know for my course are in here. Plus, there are many more instruments, that would also be useful to a nurse/ST working in these specialties who need a refresher. I like the fact that a description of the instruments are also included on the back of the cards. The only thing that could be improved: the instruments pictures should be in color, I think this would help with memorization.

Good info, really poor quality Jan. 6 2011
By David Stanley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great to finally find cards like these. Too bad they are made so poorly. Looks like they were printed on recycled cardboard in China. The only color is on the side with the words. Color pictures would have been more helpful. They are also very small, just a little bit bigger than a business card. Overall, very disappointed. I expected much more for the money I paid. I might just send them back.

Didn't find these helpful Dec 6 2012

These flashcards are a nice tool, but I found other resources to be more helpful. I prefer a bigger picture and a picture that is of the "real" instrument.
