Overview

Based on the phenomenal artwork found in the 3rd edition of Gray's Anatomy for Students, this set of 350 flashcards is the perfect review companion to help you test your anatomical knowledge for course exams or the USMLE Step 1! It's portable, it's concise, it's simply the best way to study anatomy… in a flash!

  • Conveniently access all of the need-to-know anatomy information! Each card presents beautiful 4-color artwork or a radiologic image of a particular structure/area of the body, with numbered leader lines indicating anatomical structures; labels to the structures are listed by number on the reverse, in addition to relevant functions, clinical correlations, and more.
  • Fully grasp the practical applications of anatomy with "In the Clinic" discussions on most cards, which relate structures to corresponding clinical disorders; a page reference to the companion textbook (Gray's Anatomy for Students, 3rd Edition) facilitates access to further information.
  • Carry selected groups of flashcards wherever your studying takes you with the aid of pre-punched holes and a convenient binding ring.
  • Access a clear, visual review of key concepts with wiring diagrams that detail the innervation of nerves to organs and other body parts, as well as muscle cards covering functions and attachments.
  • Study efficiently while being confident in your mastery of the most important anatomical concepts! Flashcards have been thoroughly revised to reflect the updates made to the companion text, Gray's Anatomy for Students, 3rd Edition.
  • Understand the clinical relevance of your anatomical knowledge with brand-new clinical imaging cards added to the set.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jill E Feinstein, MS (Richland Community College)
Description: With this update, the authors have improved the overall quality and content of these anatomy flash cards, making them an excellent tool for any student studying human anatomy. They provide a range of content from overview information to basic and surface anatomy to detailed information about the regions of the body. The first edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The authors intend the flash cards to facilitate student study and understanding of the anatomical features of the human body. The cards fulfill a vital role for the visual learner. The authors do an excellent job of categorizing the information and delivering it in a manner that is conducive to student learning.
Audience: Students taking a variety of anatomy courses are the intended audience.
Features: This second edition includes a section that presents an overview of surface anatomy, the skeletal system, the muscular system, and the arteries and veins of the cardiovascular system. The other sections cover specific regions of the human body, ending with detailed information about body systems such as the brain, spinal cord, and autonomic nervous system. The illustrations are excellent and each is labeled with numbers on one side and a key and additional information on the other side. A section of cards contain clinical questions to challenge students' ability to apply their knowledge to relevant clinical issues. An online resource that accompanies these flash cards provides students with an online version of the cards. Each card is hole-punched to allow the use of the binder ring provided with the cards, which permits students to transport only the cards they are currently studying. The only shortcoming is the lack of histology images, which would be useful for students also studying tissues in their anatomy course.
Assessment: These flash cards are an excellent educational tool that will help students at all levels. I would recommend them to my anatomy students. They are comparable to Anatomy Flash Cards: Anatomy on the Go, Gilroy (Thieme, 2008)) in content, but the latter has a better online resource that allows students to study each illustration with or without labels, along with a self-testing feature. Nevertheless, this second edition of the Gray's flash cards is a very worthwhile update of a valuable student resource.

    Very disappointed...

    I was so excited when I first saw these flashcards becuase it appeared that they contained the exact information that I needed to for my A&P class. During a study session however, we discovered that one of the cards mislabled the spinosus and tranverse processes on the spinal vertebrae. At fist I was willing to accept that small error until my friend pointed out that the lesser wing of the sphenoid bone wasnt even diagramed in the picture. I am very disappointed in this product and would love to keep the cards but I am afraiod that there are more errors and I just cant risk the integrity of my education.
