This book will help you with more than just your Anatomy course. I am a third year medical student who used this book prior to taking step one and I can honestly say that the questions in this book helped me get at least 15-20 questions correct and ultimately earn a score in the high 250's. There wasn't a single anatomy or embryology question on my board exam that I had not already encountered in this book. In fact there were multiple pathology questions that I was able to answer because I had seen them when going through this q&a style book.
Do not be one of the people who blows off anatomy and embryology. While these sections don't make up a ton of questions on the exam, I believe that dominating them will help separate you from everyone else.
The way this book is laid out is optimal for learning anatomy, embryology, and how to recognize both when given complex clinical scenarios. This book is challenging, but all answers (right or wrong) are thoroughly explained. Make sure to read all answer explanations, right or wrong, as this is where you will learn the most. Going through this book during your anatomy course in preparation for your final exam and again prior to step one will be of great benefit to whomever chooses to do so. Buy this book if you want to do well in these two subjects.
