Medical education is all about being efficient (as well as repetition), so these flash cards are a great place to start when you're an MS-1 studying the musculoskeletal system. I'm currently an MS-1, and found the following about Netter's:

Pros:
-Quickly learn all the innervations, origins, and attachments for muscles, as well as what passes through each of the foramina of the skull.

-The organization is great, the cards are compact, and you don't really need to carry around two huge books with you everyday. Great for the frantic reviewing we always do, too!

-I'd purchase these cards over the Thieme Atlas of Anatomy I used probably 2-3 times for about 0 seconds each time.

Cons:
While Dr. Netter has artistic talent, supplement your ability to locate anatomical structures by anatomy lab time, and Rohen's Colour Atlas of Anatomy. His paintings don't give you the proper depth, lighting, and spatial relationships that looking at real donor bodies does, and Netter usually presents just one to a few muscles on the entire arm, for example, instead of all the other muscles, tendons, vasculature, and nerves that are running about there as well.

Netter's got me through the musculoskeletal system and head and neck, but I used just Rohen's and my class lectures for GI and pelvis/reproductive. Combine Rohen's with Netter's flashcards for a really solid learning experience in medical school.

I purchased both sets of Netter's flash cards. The musculoskeletal flash cards were better for muscles & bones, and the Anatomy flash cards worked well for other structures. However, these were only for the structures that were listed on the cards. I made many alterations to the cards to compensate for the lack of identified structures. That being said, my previous method of making flash cards was to use Mental Case on the Mac. I prefer to use Mental Case, but creating the images with numbered structures was too time consuming. Using the flash cards saved time in creating flash cards for the structures covered in gross anatomy even considering the alterations needed.

Out of the box, these flash cards would be better suited for undergraduate level of study.

(+)
Good Quality cards
Clear & detailed images
Organized into different sections
Ring included to keep a selection of cards organized
Numbered cards so they can be put back in order

(-)
Not enough structures identified on the cards (for graduate level study)
-Images are the same as the book, but not the same level of detail.
-# of cards could be reduced with increased detail in structure identification
-with the same # of cards, increased structure identification could make them usable for graduate study
Some cards are titled with the structure identified on the card. (Had to use tape to cover the titles)

I had the Kaplan flash cards and found some errors. Some of the cards are mis-labled. When you're in a Doctoral program, you expect to have your study material free from errors. I then bought the Netter flash cards b/c I was just fed up with the Kaplan ones. The Netter cards are arranged by region, just like my school. If your school breaks Anatomy by systems, these are probably not for you. But great cards. They have most muscles with origins, insertions, innervations, actions, and clinical facts. Great Cards!!!

While the cards don't have all the plates from Netter's Atlas, it has the main images that you'll need to do well in anatomy. I loved the ring provided so I could easily study from the flashcards while anywhere. Very happy with this purchase!

I always look at these flash cards when riding public transit to/from school when I don't feel like doing any other anatomy studying.

If you are in med school, or some other professional health school that dissects cadavers, BUY THESE CARDS!
They have everything you need to know for the lab component: clinical scenarios, insertions, origins, and innervations.
The newest version of these flash cards has the top corner hole punched on all of the them, and comes with a giant ring. This way, you can pick and choose which cards you want to take with you.

I've been using Netter's to review anatomy before matriculating into graduate school, and they've been wonderful. The cards are accurate and detailed, and on the back side of each there are little blurbs of clinical application. A great way to sharpen up on human anatomy.

Format: Cards
These cards are a really nice tool for reviewing anatomy. I have primarily used them for reviewing muscles, and they work very well for that since they have the name of the muscle, its origin, its insertion, its action, and clinical considerations for that muscle on each card. The cards with the bones were useful but not to the same extent. They mainly had major bony landmarks, and many of the cards didn't have as much detail as I needed to know for my college anatomy course.

As other reviewers have noted, the cards are broked into sections by part of the body. However, each section has a mini index, so it's very easy to find the cards you need. They also come with a hole punched in one edge and a ring for easily transporting them. All-in-all, these flash cards are a convenient resource for quickly reviewing anatomy.
