Memorizing the Skeletal Muscles

Posted

I'm working on my Anatomy and Physiology course, and it requires me to memorize about 200 some of the Skeletal muscles. Does anyone have experience, have tips for making flash cards, or know of some good mnemonics or other methods of learning them? Thank you. ^^

I suggest Googling anatomy flashcards. You can definitely find free ones on the internet.

I memorized one body part at a time. Some of the muscles have the similar names to the bones they are attached, their shape, and the motion they make. If you memorize one arm they are the same on the other arm and the same with the leg and so on. Hope that helps. Quizlet is a great resource and there are some memory games online that can help.

I will be checking out Quizlet. That's a really fantastic idea, to just memorize one body part at a time. Thanks for sharing! (:

There is an anatomy coloring book that is really good to use also...sounds funky but it is really worth it!
