    I'm not a great lover of the Crash-course anatomy book. IMO, the best crash courses are the metabolism one and the respiratory/cardiovascular editions.
    The Psych one is brilliant - but I suppose you guys haven't done psych yet. When you do, I recommend it - am currently writing an entire project out of it whilst also trying to revise for written finals (first one 4 weeks today, AAAAAAAAAARGH!! :eek:

    It is not so much that I need it fast, I just need it to be clear. Like a diagram or table saying this inserts here or this part of the thorasic vetebre is called this ect. I just can't really seem to find anything that makes it really clear.

    "Instant Anatomy" by Bob Whitaker and someone else is pretty good for those sorts of things. I think there's a website but can't remember it - just google for it and you'll find it. The website is limited, but the book is good for revision.

    no idea from me sorry, even google doesn't have the answer! :eek:
    thank you anyway.. *desolate*

    i tried google. even my neuro books big enough to do someone a severe head injury don't use the phrasing like that :rolleyes:

    am subsequently writing an 'everything i know about what happens in the retina & LGN' essay - by a massive splurging, i hope to make a few relevant points, who knows.. they may jump up & bite me! but no doubt my line of argument/structure/style etc will no doubt be torn to shreds.. urgh.

    crash course in psychiatry?! sounds a bit dubious that everyone's problems can be condensed into a few thousand words
    trust me, this is the best way to deal with people's problems, otherwise you'll get so bogged down it's untrue

    That's why Oxbridge medicine is silly. We're doing eyes at the moment too and I hate it. I keep nodding off in lectures

    Hi Fellow Medicalo's!

    Just to let you know that Elseviers new Student Consult website, specifically for medical professionals, or to quote the website: "Welcome to STUDENT CONSULT, a highly innovative learning system for students of medicine, dentistry and health sciences." went live today:

    http://www.studentconsult.com/default.cfm

    It actually looks quote good - the main aim is obviously to get you to order text books with them, but there's loads of free chapters (Bookstore section), loads of sample MCQs, case studies, exam tips, blogs, games and competitions (Spleen section) and tonnes of images (For Instructors section).

    There's also a really good section called 'my library' where you can store all your activated Elsevier Books (from the pin number in the actual book) for rapid on line access - i.e you can access them all in one place through Student Consult.


    Hope it's of help/use.

    Random:

    Not sure if this is too late, but there's a sample chapter of the Crash course in anatomy on studentconsult.com:

    http://www.studentconsult.com/spleen...?chapterID=446

    might give you an idea if you might like the book or not.

    :confused: isn't that website the same as www.fleshandbones.com ?
    It has replaced flesh and bones - if you have a flesh and bones account it should work on student consult. It's supposed to be better - flesh and bones kept crashing apparently.
