In our school, the exam is timed (1 minutes per station)
I don't know about how other schools
Is there any other methods to study for lab practical?
I check out bone box and try to identify each bone marking without looking at the book.
However, my brain gets messed up during the timed test.
I am doing pretty good in lecture exam but lab is hard.
Any other methods you guys want to share??

Your Lab Practicals sound exactly like ours, here's what I did:
Download any apps you can for your iPad, phone, computer, pretty much whatever gadget you have. Take the practice quizes over and over again. (I rewarded myself with cookies if I beat my score)
Review your lab manual OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN
There are bunches of online games that you can play just by searching what you are learning.
Watch A&P videos on youtube.
Review. Review. Review.
The biggest thing I can recommend is to review over and over for hours! The more time you spend on this the better you will do! (I studied 70+ hours for my lab practical and first lecture exam) the better you understand the structures the easier the test will be, even if your understanding is beyond what you need to know for the exam you will be better off for it.
During the test make sure you keep track of your scantron, don't try to go back or change your answers. I also do calf raises in between questions, it may sound silly, but it really helps clear your head and pump those endorphines through your brain.
Hope you succeed on your next exam!
The result turned out I got high A! (89/90).
Thank you for the suggestion though. I read in SDN that if you cannot identify the bone marking in 10 seconds, you need to study more.
Thank you about application suggestion also! Any good application I can use for studying??
I know "Anatomy" Application with some guy's face on it.
