How to study human anatomy?

I just finished my first semester of college. My grades were most B’s. I made a B in biology but was hoping for an A. I will be taking human anatomy and philology next semester from the same professor. She uses powerpoints but her test are challenging. Last semester I made notecards but that didn’t really help. What do y’all suggest??

    I started learning anatomy through Frank Netter’s Atlas of Human Anatomy. Images and diagrams describing the various muscles, organs and bones of the human body are a great way to start studying the subject because you can visualize the functional & systemic parts and commit them to memory.

    Look into YouTube videos on anatomy including the high definition ones on Visible Body. Start with the basics e.g., the skeletal system, and understand how the parts of that system function as a whole (bones, joints, sockets, hinges).

    Here are my Top 3 recommendations for A&P books that are great for a better understanding of the subject:

    Anatomy & Physiology by Dr James Ross

    Principles of Anatomy and Physiology by Tortora, Grabowski

    Atlas of Human Anatomy by Frank H. Netter

    There are many different learning styles and one of the most important things you can learn in school is what your learning style is. You could be primarily a visual, auditory, or a kinesthetic learner. If you were a visual learner then likely spending more of your time studying diagrams would help you. If you are an auditory learner then listening to lectures on the subject would help. If you were a kinesthetic learner then possibly touching each part that you can touch (as appropriate) as you learn about each part would help you. Also, 3D diagrams or scale models would be good for a visual or kinesthetic learner. Quiz yourself after you try each method several times to try to find out your learning style and ace the course!
