5.0 out of 5 stars great stuff
A book that is brilliant for revision, and does exactly what it says it does inside: it provides a framework for revision. It would be very hard to learn from this for the first time without having come across the anatomy before, but this book condenses all of the necessary information into a few pages per chapter, without missing out anything necessary, in a narrative...

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Core Anatomy for Students: Vol. 3: The Head & Neck: Head & Neck v. 3 (Paperback)
A book that is brilliant for revision, and does exactly what it says it does inside: it provides a framework for revision. It would be very hard to learn from this for the first time without having come across the anatomy before, but this book condenses all of the necessary information into a few pages per chapter, without missing out anything necessary, in a narrative style that makes it a lot easier to memorise everything, rather than laying out everything in lists and tables.

For this reason, although it is a brilliant book to base revision around, it would not be great as a book to "dip into" for quick fact retrieval, such as Instant Anatomy. It includes clinical relevance, and simple diagrams that are easily reproducible in an essay. Large anatomy textbooks such as Gray's and Netter's, although full of diagrams and good for first time learning, are too large for efficient revision, whereas books such as Instant Anatomy are too blunt and listed for re-learning; this book offers a middle ground, with just over 100 (small) pages with diagrams written in a style that explains concept rather than detail, and will often repeat the most important points across a chapter to reinforce them.

Use this book as a "walkthrough" to revision with other books to refer to when coming across difficult concepts, not the other way around. I also have the other 2 books in the series, and this whole review applies exactly the same to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book for medics, 10 Sep 2008
This review is from: Core Anatomy for Students: Vol. 3: The Head & Neck: Head & Neck v. 3 (Paperback)
This book is very good at giving you the basics for what you need for starting head and neck anatomy, with very good diagrams and also lots of multiple choice questions to test your knowledge.
