ok for broad overview and revision, too basic for "real" learning...
on 23 March 2012
these cards are useful to a degree. i am studying veterinary physiotherapy, which involves all the physiology and anatomy in great detail.
i didn't like how the color system was applied here -yes, colors are VERY helpful- but i would have put "a" color with each type of animal and each structure (i.e i would prefer, ALL dog bones blue, ALL dog muscles red, ALL dog organs yellow etc), and not "a" color with each of the different subjects, which are all mixed with all animals here (but i now get 3 colors or more to get my whole skeletal system for a dog together, which is more confusing than helpful !). this means now that i have to find lots of differently colored cards to match together ALL information on dog bones, as they are here divided into AREAS of body (front, back, thorax etc) and not into "closed" and complete SUBJECTS...
but that just MY learning style, maybe it works for you.
it was also a great pity that origin and attachment of individually named muscles were not added. space would have been available. now i have to create separate cards for each muscle on that...
the physiology part of them is very basic, but ok for revision and "overview".
however, for your INITIAL learning detailed anatomy books or other tools are absolutely needed.
these cards suit revision or overview only. good luck with your studies ( :
