"The text is well spaced, and complemented with illustrations wherever appropriate. The layout is clear and logical. The language is simple and the facts are being presented almost in note form, which is a key feature of this series, enabling the student to absorb facts more easily without overwhelming the reader. And when you think you are ready for the exam you can test your knowledge by filling in multiple choice, short answers and extended matching questions.This series is the best way to prepare for an exam and I would recommend it to everyone. "Medical Student, Maastricht University, Netherlands (series review)

The Crash Course series has once again seen a revision of its titles in this 4th edition to ensure that the details within this book are up-to-date and relevant.
This book claims to "provide the exam syllabus in one place" so that medical students don't have to go looking elsewhere for information they need for exams. When reading this book, at first this seemed to be the case, however I was highly disappointed to find that this book glosses over the structure of the eye. The anatomy of the orbit is given but not the eye itself which is the one more commonly tested upon. This is an organ my medical school certainly tests us on and as such I was surprised not to see it in this book given its claim. The book additionally does not deal sufficiently with the structure of the brain, an organ other anatomy textbooks of this size deal with. There are only 3 pages that very briefly mention the brain which is surprising as this is the one organ that is always tested upon in our exams. It would have been good to have had a bit more detail than this on the brain given its examination importance.
For this reason I do not feel I can rate this book as highly perhaps as would be expected as it has made such bold claims and in at least one case has not met them on an important organ!
The revamped questions section at the back of the book with 'Best of five' and 'Extended matching questions' are most certainly of the style encountered in the undergraduate curriculum and as such are really useful!
On the whole I would say this is a really good book and worthwhile using if you wish to have a quick way to revise anatomy for exams as long as you don't expect it to cover all the anatomy you need.
