When I was studying gross anatomy, Netter was my hands down favourite. It was only later on that I realized there are several inaccuracies within the text and he often doesn't go into as much detail as is needed. Still, it's a classic work and everyone should have a copy... and then supplement it with Thieme, Pernkopf (or Clemente if you want to avoid the controversy), Sobotta and Gray's.

I will admit, Netter's illustrations are gorgeous. But a week into my med school anatomy class, the awe of pretty pictures was replaced by sheer frustration. Netter frivolously omits anatomical structures, draws incorrect anatomy, and mislabels. I found illustrations in Moore's Clinically Oriented Anatomy and Gray's Anatomy to be sufficient and less confusing. Text in those books also helped to clarify any uncertainties.

It has made studying much easier

I used this book as a side reference when I was taking a Neuroanatomy class. I used it a lot more than the class-assigned textbook. It's very clearly drawn & really helps to clarify complicated systems. I'd definitely recommend it. The drawings are amazing.

Excellent resource for students and doctors other than human cadavers.

This is an excellent resource for anyone in a high school, college, and especially graduate level Anatomy course!! The pictures are great and many of the pics are shown from multiple views making it even esier to get your bearings! My only complaint about it is the index in the back of the book isn't always user-friendly if you are looking for certain small, detailed parts of the pictures.

This book is a must have for medical students, undergrads, and grad students enrolled in anatomy courses.

Excellent quality reference.

My wife is a medical student, and she says that Netter's made Anatomy class much easier to follow. I, on the other hand, am an illustrator. The atlas provides me with accurate, beautifully depicted structural details. Studying this book has helped me to understand the subcutaneous origins of all those skin ripples, folds, bulges, and lines. This book should be on every med student's shelf and every illustrator's shelf. If you're married like we are, then you only need one shelf!
