About this book
This manual is not intended as a textbook. Instead, it contains what one experienced teacher has judged to be the material most needed to prepare you to cope with a wide range of questions dealing directly or indirectly with Gross Anatomy. The emphasis is placed on material that has appeared on recent National Boards, Part I, examinations. Consequently, many points emphasized in your medical school course may not be stressed here. Therefore, before you begin your review, please examine the entire manual to appraise its organization and content. Throughout this review, text is kept to a minimum. The illustrations--essentially adaptations of blackboard drawings--support the text. You may wish to consult your favorite atlas of anatomy as well. A general table of contents follows this preface, and detailed ones precede each chapter to facilitate searches and cross references. The sequence of chapters takes you from the most straightforward regions (the extremities) to the most complex (head and neck), but you may, of course, follow any sequence suitable to your needs.
