Medical Students Caveat Emptor

I thought this was be a quick overview of useful material for anatomy since its promoted as being a useful tool for the USMLE and school. Just no. I would liken this to a high school anatomy level. I "may" recommend this to a premed with no clue what a tibia is but then again I'm not sure if this covered that level of detail. It may also work for Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?

It's got a 100 "top tested" questions which are basic, give no explanations (they really don't need them though), and are occasionally wrong or at least not technically correct. Also it does them twice, once after the chapters and again at the end of the book.

Word pronunciation is about as good as you'd expect.

I'm going to check out another one of these because maybe anatomy is just one of those subjects this doesn't work for but my expectations are low.

Poor pronunciation and wrong "answers"

The pronunciation of many terms is flat-out wrong, e.g., nasolacrimal: "nay-zoh-luh-CRY-muhl". Really? I know there is disagreement on the correct pronunciation of medical terms, and I work with doctors who will often pronounce the same thing differently, but there were just too many pronunciations here that had me scratching my head.

At this point, I've gone through about half the book, and in multiple chapters there has been at least one "answer" to the review questions at the end of each chapter that is just plain wrong. Really, there's no excuse for this. One I could excuse, but not the frequent wrong answers that occur in this book.

As for the book living up to its title and what it purports to be, it is indeed essentially a "crash course" for general anatomy. You get a more or less full treatment of the basics, but precious little beyond that. If you can overlook the gross mispronunciations and frequent wrong answers, you may be okay with this book, but if you're a serious student, you're much better studying from a bona fide, detailed, anatomy textbook such as the latest edition of Gray's Anatomy for Students. Audiobooks for anatomy in general seem like they wouldn't be a good option, as a detailed understanding requires visual and spatial perception, and I'm sorry I wasted a credit on this.

While taking an intro to anatomy course, I’d listen to this while I got ready for my day. Very helpful!

Many mistakes

I’ve found numerous mistakes in the end of chapter multiple choice questions. I’ve even found a couple mistakes within the general content. The breadth of content is pretty good though and I still listen to this as review on my commute. The sound of my eye rolls can be distracting though when I hear errors.

Extremely useful!

I actually got this for a friend who's preparing to get a PHD abroad and doesn't have English as his native language. This was super helpful to prepare him, and even I learned some things although I'm not from the medical area.

He went ahead and bought other books from the same collection!

Full of errors

I made it through chapter 5 before I gave up. The errors are too many to count and the content of the “lecture” is contradicted in the Q & A section.

Might be good for first year American students.

I'm in third year and I thought it was quite basic. Also there are some errors. I know some nomenclature differs slightly from American to English, and some of it will just be pronunciation, but some of it is just wrong. Stuck with it just because it's short, but I'm a bit disappointed.
