    Well, this is the site I used in addition to my coloring books, and flashcards,
    http://www.msjensen.gen.umn.edu/weba...le/default.htm

    You can fill it all in then have it scored to see what was off.

    Hope it helps some

    Edit to add: Good Luck and remain calm, if you freak it is only harder to regather your thoughts.

    I always drew pictures of the muscles then went through em' like note cards. Lable one side with the drawing and then numbers pointing to the different muscles. On the other side of the card write the name of the muscle that goes with the numbers.

    My school had various models of leg muscles, arm muscles, facial, throacic, eye, etc. muscles that students could study. I found studying the models to help it all make sense.

    do you have a Netters atlas of anatomy? We were required to have that and then I bought the optional cards which help tremendously. get a hold of a drawing that will be similar to your test drawing and copy it multiple times so you can practice, practice practice! If it is a drawing it probably won't be as hard as you are imagining. Good luck!

    I put pictures up all over the house of the body/muscles, on the wall, over the sink, on the fridge, on the door of the toilet....I found this really helped, even my kids learnt some of the names.

    A friend had a good idea, she put piccys on the fridge and had to name 3 muscles before she was allowed to open the door, needless to say she lost weight
