easy way to remember those bones

  1. Ok this may not work for everyone but I took A+P during the Fall also, bought a good repo skull and one of those hanging skeletons that are halloween decorations and labeled them , even took it to work and hung it up in the breakroom. The skeleton is not excactly antomically correct but by labeling alone you will be able to remember almost all of the larger bone so really only had to work on the tiny ones.. any way try this i made a 99% w/ one week of study. Hope this helps some one.

    Where do you get repo skeletons??

    Our instructor says that some of the medical school libraries have full skeletons and told us that we could go on Saturdays and study. We have two med schools in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

    Hey thanks for the tip. I might have to do this one. I thought about buying a skull and labeling myself to learn the bones of the head...I had a little bit of radiology study last year on bones but I have forgotten alot of them.
    Anybody have any other ideas or things like the above to help with anatomy? For muscles? What all do you have to remember besides the bones and muscles?
