I bought this book for 1st year vet anatomy. It is required for the course, as it is the dissection guide. It is easy to follow and has excellent reference pictures. In this most recent edition, they are in color for the first time. I personally find gross dissection pictures more useful as a study reference, but these hand-drawn pics are just fine for locating things in antonym laboratory. I would recommend it for any vet student whose anat lab does not already have it as a required text. It has also been in the reference library of nearly every clinic I have worked it, so it is a useful reference that you will want to hold onto!

For the most part it reads in a logical way that allows groups to have one person read and the others follow instructions fairly easily. There are some nice diagrams for some sections like the muscles. These diagrams depict medial, lateral, cranial, and caudal views as well as cross section views. This is very helpful. The diagrams on nerves and arteries are okay. These are a little harder to follow because exact location may vary by dog and these don't always set as neat as muscles. The heart section is sparse.You will need some other book/notes to properly orient yourself with various internal structures of the heart. The abdominal section is pretty well done with good pictures and directions. The cranial dissection is hit and miss and I deviated from many of the directions because they didn't follow well.

It's not a book that I really use to study from. I might use it as a quick reference, but our class notes provide better exam information. This is a very basic directional book that you'll likely deviate from to find the structures you're looking for.

I chose this one as I like to have the names of the structures actually on the drawings. I seem to learn better than having to look up the corresponding numbers.

If you buy any book in vet school, this should be it. Great illustrations, lots of diagrams, easy to study from, and mine is covered in embalming fluid. I ended up keeping it as a reference.

Just what I ordered - met my expectation. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. The price could be a little more reasonable.

The figures are very helpful. The text explains things well. Great book to use for an anatomy course or just for reference!
