Agree with 1st year med student - TERRIBLE atlas!
on January 13, 2011
I am in my first year of Physician Assistant school, and Grant's Atlas of Anatomy is on the required reading list.
The drawings are very high quality, however the organization of the book is terrible. Often, important muscles are left out of origin/insertion/function charts, and you have to peruse the index to find them, and when you do, you are given 10 possible pages where the muscle could be.
A huge waste of both money and time. On my father's recommendation (Physician), I have ordered the 1987 version of Clemente's Regional Anatomy, which he says is far superior and got him through Medical School.
Even if this is required reading for your particular program, if you are smart, you will avoid this like the plague.
