Drawings and flashcards galore! Full swing into exam prep for the LAST exam of anatomy. This was my very first anatomy class and I definitely had to restructure the way I studied.
So how do I study for anatomy?
• Anki cards: digital flashcards that take advantage of spaced repetition. I make my own flashcards using photos from our lab manual, atlas, and powerpoints. The Cloze plug-in is a essential for quickly making flashcards with pictures!
• Netter flashcards. Great graphics that go into the structures in detail with clinically relevant information on the back. Super convenient to review during commutes or in lines! (Link in my Amazon shop in bio)
• Draw it out. Doesn’t matter if you’re an artist or can barely draw a straight line. Heck my Circle of Willis is solely of crooked lines. Trust me, drawing out the structures will help you make connections and note easily overlooked details.
• Get handsy. Go to lab. Go to the model room. Take advantage of all the available resources. No pictures, videos, or text will ever compare to physically feeling the structures themselves. Also the cadavers and bones at your disposable are a GIFT. It is an incredible honor to be given the opportunity to study them. Give them your 110% and go in there outside of class times.
