Best Anatomy & Physiology Flash Cards?

  1. I am in anatomy & physiology this semester and was wondering if anyone has used flashcards that they purchased. Which ones are best and were the most helpful?

    Thank you!!

    Hi!
    I have had a ton of anatomy and phsiology in both high school and college, but flash cards never worked for me. I know this sounds silly, but coloring books worked for me. There are anatomy, physiology, microbiology and every other "ology" coloring books. They explain what you are coloring and seeing it in picture form helps. I can remember what I learn so much better this way (I am a hands on learner). They are great!! You might want to give it a shot. It worked for me-I got an A in my anatomy and physiology course. Just a tip: if you decide to get one, go for the Wyn Kapit/Lawerence M. Elson version (much better, the original). Hope this helps!

    Much Luck

    As for anatomy I found that "Netter's Anatomy Flash Cards" were great. In fact I believe them to be the ONLY reason I actually passed anatomy. I found them around $30 on amazon.

    I appreciate the helpful tips. A&P hasn't been all that brutal really, it's biochemistry/organic that I am having most of my trouble with...any suggestions for that?

    I had to make my own flash cards to really learn the information. I just went throuh the book, writing down information and making my own flashcards that I could review whenever/wherever...it help me because I first had to read the info, write it down, and then could review it multiple times later without having to carry that book around.

    I agree with making your own flashcards, plus then you get the info that you really know your teacher focuses on. My prof would delete some information on some things, deciding to focus more on other aspects. I really think flashcards for anatomy need to be personalized
