A good idea, but flawed in execution
on 13 June 2015
These are a good idea in principle, but are flawed in execution.
- The way the cards are labelled both front and back makes it difficult to use them for revision/testing purposes. This rather defeats the whole purpose of the cards, I would have thought.
- Due to the way the 'pins' are positioned, it can be difficult to determine exactly what is being depicted (the boundaries between different muscles are often poorly distinguished from each other).
- There aren't enough pins per card. There are multiple images that are repeated across 3 or 4 cards, with only a few pins on each card. I got the impression that the publisher was 'stringing out' the material in order justify having more cards. Much better to have one card testing multiple items, I think.
- The box is huge (possibly directly related to the above point). They aren't really as portable as I'd hoped.
