5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Anatomy Aid -- A must for med students June 29, 2000
This book is the best reference on the human body I've found! It focuses individually on each system, with large ready-to-color pages. This book list all bones and muscles in the human body (in the drawings, too) and reveals their locations. It goes into extreme detail about everything, and shows a fetal circulation diagram, which I have had trouble finding in other books. This book lists the view names (anterior, posterior, superior, ventral, etc.) and gives a diagram. It even spends some time talking about cells and tissues, with a colorable diagram of a cell. This book is a MUST for med students, and would make a great reference book for physicians. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in human anatomy, for I sure am enjoying it. Also check out "The Physiology Coloring Book, 2nd Edition". Note:For this book you should have a good supply of quality colored pencils, probably about 30, including gray and black.

I'm an 11th grader attending Norwich Free Academy currently taking AP anatomy & pysiology. This is one of those books, not required, but extrememely useful for surviving anatomy. With all the memorization, the coloring and written out labels w/ definitions, helps your out class grade so much. The visuals are so graphic and precise I find it has helped maintain a high gpa in the course. I would recommend this book for highschool & college anatomy students as well as for anatomy teachers. When the teachers print out the different coloring pages to assign for hw, as silly as it sounds, it infact helps w/ the whole physical concept. It is also a great break in between attempting Uconn Chemistry problems and reading about a bunch of dead guys in AP history. =P

5.0 out of 5 stars Great - Wonderful Learning Tool for Students November 14, 1998
I am an undergrad Pre-Med student, and I found that working with this book was a valuable resource for helping me to learn the parts of the body that I need to know. This book is laid out very well, and in addition to the outlines of the structures, provides brief summaries of their functions. I don't really know why this book helps ingrain the anatomy in one's brain, but my whole class purchased this book and we have found it extraordinarily helpful!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent tool for visual learners October 21, 2002
This is a workbook I'd reccomend for any student of Anatomy. I make a point to get a new copy every three to four years and color through it just to review and stay fresh. I am studying massage Therapy now, and first used this book six years ago when I was thinking about going into massage therapy or physical therapy since I knew I would need this(if you're wondering why the long length of time, just getting money together for school).
The knowlegde of the muscles, thier attachemnts, origins, and actions have stayed fresh in my mind for years so that going through A&P was much easier for me than for my classmates. While the bones and muscles were my main interest, I aquired a good working knowledge of the rest of the body from this book along with my textbooks.
This book is great for anyone even thinking of a medical profession, or artists needing a better understanding of how the body is put together. I have known a few people this book didn't help, but this was because they were not visual learners, but this is great for anyone who learns visually.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent adjunct for anatomy August 17, 2001
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The beauty of this book is that it's appropriate for all ages--it's detailed enough for a 1st year med student (especially for the summer before you start--it takes too long to color during the semester), and if you're a visual learner, you'll probably find it a better tool than just any old textbook. The text accompanying each picture is probably too much for a high school student, and maybe just enough for a med student, but it's a good starting point no matter what your level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best way to learn April 13, 1999
By Mike T
I am a massage therapy student and this is the great way to learn all the insertions of each muscles. It even has general information about each muscle group. Coloring is not only fun, but this really does sink in. How else can you learn all the names?

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for anyone wanting to learn anatomy June 25, 2000
Roll up your sleeves, get your colored pencils out and go to town. Color by number and get a great, detailed understanding of the entire muscular and skeletal system along with all of the body's other important systems. A great reference guide that I refer to time and time again when researching injuries and teaching my clients about various muscle groups. - Michael J. Merlino, Certified Professional Fitness Trainer

5.0 out of 5 stars a great learning tool June 22, 2001
By A Customer
When this book is first assigned, you may be skeptical about its effectiveness as a learning tool. For me, it is similar to writing a grocery list - if you leave it at home, odds are you can remember a lot on the list, just because you went through the exercise of writing it down. There is tremendous value to repeating, for example, the name of a particular bone, while you color. It's a terrific memory exercise. Fear not! Dive in!
