I'm a first year med student. I have both this book and The Anatomy Coloring Book by Kapit and Elson. I prefer the Netter's for the information content, but the drawings are so much better in the other. Netter is wonderful as an atlas, but because the drawings have just been adapted for coloring, they aren't really suited for the purpose. It's difficult to tell the borders of muscles, and I have colored things incorrectly more than once. The drawings in The Anatomy Coloring Book were drawn and labeled with coloring in mind, and therefore are much more clear. However, that book is seriously lacking in information about the muscles--if it had origin/insertion/action tables, it would be perfect. Overall, I think I prefer The Anatomy Coloring Book to the Netter's coloring book, and I would recommend that one first. (The Anatomy Coloring Book also covers nerves and vessels more thoroughly, and includes helpful sections for neuroanatomy, embryology, and even histology. It also has really helpful quizzes throughout.)

As far as the overall concept, I've found coloring to be quite helpful when learning anatomy. I use it for my first overview of the area we are learning--I don't expect to learn everything I know this way, but it gives me a good place to start. And it's fun!

I started the first year of med school this year and really liked this book. It is extremely helpful since you probably need 3 books to makeup for this one book. It has a description of the location on the side and then pictures which you can color. My favorite part is that it has all the information about muscles like origin and inverations. It is a great book and a must-buy for any medical student.

Coloring the muscle's fiber directions really instills a good sense of how they are "running". This is good because we can more effectively treat them. The book also reinforces origin and insertions. You are coloring the entire muscle from origin, belly, to insertion. Muscles that have more than one head are clearly defined. The book has all the innervation's and lymph system to color. Actually, this books includes all the organ systems in rich detail. Included is a little background info on each structure that is to be colored. Though not super small, these are not large drawings either, but I like that. It makes you really distinguish what you are coloring. You need coloring pencils, not crayons.

I am entering medical school this fall, and through a complicated admissions maneuver, I ended up not having to take anatomy as a prerequisite, while most of my other classmates did. Rather than take an online anatomy class, I decided to teach myself as best I could so that I wouldn't be completely lost in class. I asked a professor at the medical school for guidance in getting caught up to my classmates with about 7 weeks of summer left before class starts, and this is the book he recommended. No textbooks, no classes, just do this coloring book. He said that I would not be terribly far behind if I finished this book. I would learn the rest in medical school. Granted, this is not the best way to prep, but this was his advice for my exceptionally short time period to prepare.

I've now made it about halfway into Section 3 (the Muscular System), and here are my impressions so far. The book is adapted from Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy -- in fact, the pictures themselves are de-colorized copies of selected drawings from that book. The pictures chosen are meant to be a highlighted tour of the more comprehensive Atlas, and I think it works okay in that regard. You don't get bogged down by pictures of detailed, minor structures from a hundred different points of view. Each plate of drawings has a corresponding page of explanatory notes and tables, which are sub-par. The main problem with the explanatory pages is that if this is your first time looking at this material, and you have no other reference books to turn to, the explanations are sometimes incomplete and unclear. For example, in Plate 3-6, discussing Intrinsic Muscles of the Pharynx and Phonation, there is a table listing the cuneiform cartilage with a short description about its location and function.

With A&P textbooks costing about $150 these days, I cannot justify asking my students to buy anything that isn't worth its weight in gold. This book is a good reference for lab with good line drawings for studying anatomy. The price is right.

Bought for our daughter for her college anatomy class. She is a very visual learner, and this book helped her get an A in her anatomy class. Really helped her prepare for lab tests.

I am in a college Anatomy and Physiology class and this book is great! It really helps reinforce the material that my text goes over. Coloring is NOT ALWAYS for kids! Plus I can print extra pages out from the online access code that came with the book to color as well. I would recommend it to anyone.

This book is very good if you have little anatomy background. However I got this book to review anatomy and prepare me for my 3rd year of medical school, and I was disappointed at how basic the book was. Although it did have all the main points, it was missing a lot of the details I had come to expect from my other Netter's anatomy books.
