    I loved my netter cards, allowed my boyfriend to test me on things without needing to learn about it.

    Flash cards on their own are more for revision than primary learning, IMO. Try out both books (and any others) at your university library before committing to buying anything.

    Considering they are a lot of pages, i treated them as books.

    Either way, thanks for your recommendation.

    They're cards, not pages.

    I spent alot of time studying both Gray's and Clinically Oriented Anatomy. I preferred Gray's as the illustrations are far better. Although to be honest it hasn't done me a great deal of good as I've long since forgotten most of my anatomy and I'll be an SHO next week.
