    how do you best revise anatomy at uni? The content is a lot and I don't see the point in wasting time in making revision notes from lectures as it is so dense I get lost!

    Thanks

    Get a massive picture of a human body showing all the muscles and then label it. Probably best to learn using visual methods.

    I found repetition works for me. Just looking at diagrams and images regularly. Colouring books are useful and I also really like the Visible Body Human Anatomy Atlas app - it's pricey but so worth it (there's a free version you can try).

    Depends what part of the body you are looking at, and at what depth, but I wrote notes up and used pictures from Gray's and some of the Crash course books. I personally did not get much out of colouring things in or drawing my own diagrams etc. as they are never as good as Gray's so why bother. I need a 'narrative' to try and remember things.

    Thank you- I will try that method!

    Someone on another post recommended a game 'Poke A Muscle' http://www.anatomyarcade.com/games/PAM/PAM.html , there's also 'Whack A Bone'. They're both fab and a little addictive!

    The process of making flashcards or detailed revision notes is a really good way to learn things in the initial instance. I built up images and got used to labelling them and locating them using essential anatomy 5 and also ripping off images from TeachMeAnatomy.Info. I then took screen shots of the images and designed various questions around them such as "what is the function of A?" and "what blood vessel/nerve supplies B?" I used the lecture slides to devise the questions. Our course was quite superficial so everything we needed to know was in the slides anyway. I just used additional sources to help me fill in information I wasn't sure of but they were only going to test me on what was in the slides.
    I used A6 card and PowerPoint to produce them, double sided so that there were answers on one side and questions on the other. Then I used them as prompts for my revision. If I couldn't answer a question, I revised it and repeated it until I could. Then I checked again a few days later. If I could still answer it, I put it away.*
    Just remember the 6 Rs:**
    Read
    wRite
    Recall
    Revise
    Repeat
    Refresh *
