Please share tips/advice as i always seem to be failing!
:/ thanks in advance
Also, Rohens colour anatomy book
i'm not a med student but surely anatomy is best learnt by visual images etc, not boring written text on slides?

Other than than, you can also pick up this little handbook called Instant Anatomy - use this to gain a very brief overview, it's not enough on its own and needs to be used in conjunction with a comprehensive anatomy text.
Clinically Oriented Anatomy is very cumbersome and wordy, it contains all the information you need but the layout isn't the best. However, the clinical boxes are amazing and are a very helpful feature.
I've never used Snell Clinical Anatomy because my university doesn't recommend it, but your university might, so that's definitely worth having a look at. I've heard good things about it.
If your university offers prosection or dissection, make the most out of that, it's very useful. The best way to learn anatomy is by seeing cadavers and skeleton models, the second best way is through videos (Acland's!!), and then you've got your thick textbooks for anything else you need to know.
For neuroanatomy, my number one resource was Neuroanatomy by Crossman and Neary (absolutely amazing, will blow your mind, it's a thin book, concise but contains all the information you need to know). Then there's also Clinical Neuroanatomy by Snell (amazing book but MUCH more extensive and much thicker, I hardly used it at all).
We weren't provided with any decent lecture slides for anatomy so it was left up to us to chase our own resources. If in doubt, ask your fellow students what resources they're using.
Again, I cannot emphasise to you just how amazing Acland's Video Atlas is, definitely give that a go because it will help you visualise structures in a way that a book might not be able to.
