Are you studying in the UK?

With anatomy I have found there is unfortunately no quick route to learning it - it needs spaced repetition over a reasonable period of time. Flashcards and mnemonics can be helpful as well as group learning. I used Anatomy at a Glance for musculoskeletal anatomy as I liked the diagrams and the muscle index.

Trying to learn in a clinical context also makes it more memorable e.g. thinking about the anatomy behind brachial plexus pathology, foot drop, etc.

We didn't do vivas in anatomy but I think it's important to have a strategy for answering questions confidently and to prevent your mind going blank. What sort of questions do they ask? Is it variations of "describe the anatomy of X joint", "tell us about the blood supply of X" etc? I think it would be useful to have a mental checklist prepared in advance so you can answer the question without having a mind blank or forgetting things. Practising with a revision partner would be quite helpful here.

Examiners dislike fence sitting, umming, and having to prompt you so part of viva prep is learning to sound confident (even if you're not) so that could be something else to work on with a revision partner

Clinical Anatomy by Harold Ellis was my other reference text for anatomy.

There's also a lot of useful stuff online - Geeky Medics, Khan Academy, anatomy explanations on Youtube, etc.
