    I’ve used this and the rest of Dr. Bernd’s Dissection Manuals, and each one is truly fantastic. Anatomy is a notorious course, but the books honestly made a huge difference. From the crystal-clear explanations and pictures to the useful quizzes, you won’t be disappointed either.
  • great for anatomy students

    Clear instructions and great pictures of cadavers. The glossary is very detailed and incredibly helpful. A must have for any medical or dental students learning anatomy.

    Don’t know how anyone gets through dissections without this. Clear pictures, thorough glossasry, easy to follow instructions, and helpful reminders throughout. Very thoughtfully designed and simple to nagivate. I’ve used this not only during dissection but also a study resource for exams.
  • incredible dissector for med students + those looking for review

    By JackPo
    I did my MD at Columbia and did not have a dissector like this when I was a student. This would have *totally* changed my experience when I was taking anatomy! I now work on med devices and still rely on knowing anatomy and this has been invaluable.
