Used it for Graduate level Anatomy I bought this for a Grad level A&P course. It's one strength was showing a more precise presentation of how structures look in the human body/cadaver, but it had some downfalls. While I could often find specific structures in the pictures, they weren't labeled which left me (and others) frustrated. Also, the book is divided into sections that make no real logical sense, and I always felt like I had to hunt for what I was looking for. While there are some useful aspects of this book, I'd use this as a second resource or backup.After using a variety of sources (and watching other students to see wha.

This review is from the perspective of a first year medical student in Gross Anatomy.Grant's Atlas shines when it is in the dissection room with you. The drawings are more realistic, and more often than not muscles are reflected out of view rather than being omitted completely (Netter). While this is indeed more realistic and allows you to see more muscle relationships, it slows down studying because of the more complicated mess you see before you. Therefore, it's best used in the lab when that complicated mess is EXACTLY what you are seeing. In all fairness, there are little schematic drawings
Now in its Eleventh Edition, this classic atlas continues to provide students with accurate anatomical images presented in a pedagogically effective, clinically relevant manner. Since 1943, students have made Grant's the centerpiece of their anatomy lab experience. This new edition has been revised to include 100 additional four-color illustrations, additional orientation drawings, and updated terminology.This edition is packaged with a student version of Dynamic Human Anatomy, an interactive electronic supplement which includes 800 images from the Eleventh Edition of Grant's, 8 video clips from Acland's DVD Atlas of Human Anatomy, and 100 USMLE-style review questions in anatomy.
