Elsevier Health Sciences, 2006 - 184 pages
This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. THE FLESH AND BONES OF ANATOMY presents a concise, accessible account of anatomy. This title covers all the key concepts med students need with no gaps. It can be used either as an introduction to a topic, or as a revision aid. In Section 1, The Big Picture overview gives a descriptive overview of a subject. In the High Yield section, 50 fundamental principles underlying a subject are set out. These 50 principles are expanded into double-page spreads in the 'Fleshed Out' section where double-page explanations of the key principles clearly convey what medical students need to know. Difficult concepts are depicted by cartoon-strip illustrations, which enable rapid understanding and assimilation of information.

  • Big Picture Section - enables readers to relate detail to the subject as a whole
  • High Return Facts - prevents students from having large gaps in their knowledge. Can be used as a revision tool. Reinforces the major points.
  • Cartoon-strip illustrations - enable students to visualize difficult concepts in a step-by-step format. Allow information to be chunked into student-friendly sizes.
