Are the anatomy flashcards really worth the 30 dollars. Has anyone that has take Anatomy and Physiology really found these useful??? I will admit I will need all the help with that class, but I purchaced a pack yesterday and it seems to me this set up is way too confusing. You pretty much have to put the cards together, and it didn't make sense. Anyone recommend any other sources or books that may help me. Did you make your own flashcards??? Just trying to get prepared. Thanks

there are some in my class that have bought them but rarely use them. we usually make our own with an association to something else and a quick note or two. we make up acronyms like "peaf" for the muscles (which means posterior compartment extends and anterior compartment flexes :chuckle ) etc.....(you get my point ).
i have read somewhere in the board that it has helped many, so i guess it's a matter of personal choice. good luck to you. :)

thanks jessica. i am just worried about this class. is it alot of homework, do we have to do any research, or is it really all memorizing everything. i am afraid because i also took sociology with this, and a stress manangment class online. i hope i can do this. now with kids going back to school it's much harder than in the summer because i have their schoolwork to keep up with too. wish me luck!!!
I bought anatomy flashcards and never used them--they were far more detailed than what was required, even down to naming of muscles, to a point where they were more of a distraction than a help. Then again, I had an excellent professor who gave us "flashcards" (double-sided copies you could clip out and use as flashcards), and he used those same images on his exams. I got lucky with him.
A good set of anatomy flashcards costs a pretty penny; I'd wait to see what kinds of materials your professor recommends and with what s/he provides you. After two years in school, I've learned not to buy a lot of the auxillary stuff (cards, books, charts, sets, etc.) until I feel that I absolutely need them. With few exceptions, I barely use them.
You're going to do great--good luck!
I used them and they were very helpful... I don't think I would have gotten an A in the class with out them. I was fortunate to buy a set for 2.00 on clearance at a local bookstore.
i don't know how much detail your class will go into, but in mine we were required to know every landmark on the bones, right from left. all the muscles and where they attached to the bone. i used flash anatomy flash paks by bryan edwards publications. i can send you the address if you're interested. they are little, pocket sized spiral bound books. left side had plain drawing of a small section, right side had same drawing with names. i wouldn't have gotten through the class without them. there is even a separate book for the skull. sheesh, glad all that's over!!
