Simple & excellent anatomy book, but too long.

The most comprehensive resource for any medical student. Having purchased a different textbook on the advice of my Human Anatomy professor, I found the my first text overwhelmingly complex and confusing. In search of a more student-friendly text, I came across this book, and the quality and clarity far surpasses any other anatomy textbook I've seen.

This book features a detailed look at virtually every part of the human body. The information is clearly presented, and features a wide array of

If you have studied a bit of anatomy, this text should be no problem. I used it to broaden and deepen my knowledge of anatomy after having taken two anatomy classes, and also used it as a reference when working as a tutor. I found it also aided my work as a dissector. It is a great introduction and preparation for tackling the full text.

I own two anatomy textbooks (Clinically Oriented Anatomy, Sixth Edition: Softcover North American Edition and this one) and I've also read others. This is an excellent resource for medical students who are just starting to learn anatomy. Other textbooks are better when it comes to written descriptions, but few other textbooks can match the diagrams in Gray's Anatomy for Students (excepting Netter's Atlas of course).

If you want to learn anatomy study from grays, it is smoothly sectioned, the right way to say it that it is sectioned by "region" not like other books sectioned by "systems". And it has clear pictures, detailed, that can be easily memorized. The best book for me, Ido love it.

I bought this after getting fed up with Snell's Clinical Anatomy. It's like having Netter's Illustrations and Gray's Anatomy, albeit condensed, in one.

It is a stand-alone anatomy book which is very well-known worldwide. I used it during my anatomy study. Despite being the student version (the baby version), it is still very large to digest.
I would highly recommend reading the clinical boxes in each chapter. They are really helpful and I personally learned a lot from it.

Enjoyable textbook I'll keep with me throughout medical school. Very readable. I guess I've not read every last bit of this book but I read a lot of it and since I passed my anatomy class, I don't expect I'll be reading it as intensely as I was anytime soon. Overall it's a delightful text. Highly recommended.

I liked this 'cause it was way simpler than other texts, like Anatomy of Human Body and the pictures were cool and understandable, although not as precise as Atlas of Human Anatomy: With netteranatomy.com but it makes an excellent text book for people that are not familiar/ used to heavy content anatomy books.

Plus, I've met Doctor Richard L. Drake and he is super nice and intelligent and open to aswer questions or doubts about his book.

If you are not having your anatomy notes handed to you on a silver platter, or you simply learn better from reading text books than listening to lectures, this is a good book. Very easy to read, very well organized, decent graphics & lots of clinical correlates. This book saved me from the sections taught by the new anatomy professor (who wasn't a bad prof, he was just forced to come across as disconnected & slightly contradictory b/c he was forced to teach from the previous professors ...more

Best Anatomy book you could ever find !
- Great pictures illustrations.
- Easy.
- classified first by systems in brief (1 chapter) then regionally (the rest of the book)
- you could easily memories the whole body.
Yes it's not systemic, but it doesn't make confusions (at least not to me)

I definitely recommend this book !
No regrets!

the reason I kept "Gray's Anatomy for Students" as my primary textbook for anatomy was that I didn't need to look up in atlas for illustrations and diagrams . the book itself consist most conceptual diagrams . alongside illustrations text is also systemic and simple. would recommend it over snells anatomy

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
― Oscar Wilde
This is the one which can be read again and again and again and over again. :-)
The whole of human body with the near life pictures. This actually helped me pass my exams.

الطبعة التانية.
الكتاب دا زي القرآن بالنسبة للاناتومي. احسن تكست ممكن تقراه اذا ما كان عندك واحد من الجامعة نفسها. الصور ممتازة وتغنيك عن الاطلس.

الاپروتش حقه يختلف عن كتب كتير لانه يشرح ريجونال اناتومي مو سيستيماتيك اناتومي.

This text was invaluable for my first year anatomy classes. I'd like to get the full book at some point, but this one is brilliant as a first year text. Clear diagrams and explanations. Highly recommended.

It's best for the undergraduate student who already knows some anatomy.
