Only buy it if you're examined on it
on 15 February 2006
This was recommended for my course and is fairly poor, the lecturer that wrote it isn't poor however...The pictures are all black and white until you colour them in, which to be fair some people find useful, but I don't. The pictures are to be found on separate pages from their explanatory text, and solid text up to four pages at a time can be quite daunting. The detail is insufficient to get a proper grasp on the subject - you'll end up reading around it anyway. It might be good purely as a revision guide, but there are better anatomy revision tools out there - Whitaker's instant anatomy comes highly recommended. I use this series only because I know come May I'm going to be examined on their contents, but if it weren't for that I wouldn't be using them. I think it's definitely worth out forking out a little bit more for something like netter's, which works out cheaper anyway given that there are three of these to buy.
