-The lines that point to structures only have numbers on them, with a small area of the page that says what those numbers correspond to. This makes it very easy to test yourself. The downside to this is that if it is your first exposure to the structures you're looking at, you'll be constantly looking at numbers and finding the corresponding name, which isn't as quick & easy as if the lines were labeled with the name of the structure. However, this is also why it's good to have some familiarity with the structures before using this book by, say, studying the first time with a regular anatomy book.
-This being photographs of real bodies means that you see all of the tissue types in every image, and they are well labeled. I find it easier to remember what nerve or artery supplies a given muscle if I can see them both at the same time, which many regular texts don't do, at least not often enough.
As another reviewer noted and as I have alluded to, this should be used in conjunction with another anatomy book. Use a standard one to learn the structures and concepts, and then use this one to help you identify it on a real cadaver. Plus, it's always good to see things more than once. I use the Thieme Atlas of Anatomy as my primary atlas and love it. It's a relative newcomer, so you don't hear about it as often as the established giants like Netter and Grant's, but I think it's superior to either of them. The art work is incredible (better than Netter) and it includes some occasional extras peppered throughout, like small radiographs and sidenotes.Read more ›
This new edition has added a badly needed online consult and as with previous editions tweaking of the image content (this does however differ little from previous editions). Rohen does need to be used in conjunction with more typical atlases, commonly Netter's or Grant's as due to its purely pictorial nature some information is obscured. That being said Rohen is as close as you can get to learning human anatomy without having wet specimens sitting in front of you.
To put it simply Rohen is the bomb.
As the student goes through the cadaver labs, as compared to studying this book, it is important that students using this text remember that the likelihood of their cadavers ending up as clean and neatly cut as the cadavers in the book pictures is very small. However, the book is still an essential resource in helping the student develop a picture of each structure and its orientation in their mind before they go to find it in the provided cadaver. Also, when the student is studying on their own, away from the cadaver, this text is a useful reminder of how the structure actually looks in the cadaver. As an example, an upperclassman in my program was a commuter and used this book as her study tool since she was unable to stay after class in the lab to study (She spoke quite highly this text in that regard).
Definitely an essential reading/resource/tool for anatomy/cadaver labs in professional schools and undergraduate programs alike.
