What's the Best Anatomy Book used in Medical School?
I’m aware of Gray’s Anatomy, Netter’s Atlas and McMinn’s Clinical Atlas of Human Anatomy. Please suggest me some lesser-known but effective textbooks of human anatomy that also double as smart study aids for learning better or passing exams. I’m building a list of anatomy books for medical school to buy or download.

Get an anatomy coloring book like Lawrence M. Etson / Wynn Kapit. It’s a good study aid for medical, nursing and other students to learn anatomy in a hands-on "visual" way. This will be specially useful in your first year when you’re just coming to terms with how voluminous (1300-1400 pages) those anatomy and physiology textbooks tend to be.
Secondly you will need a core A&P textbook. You can use Gray’s Anatomy, Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology or Ross Anatomy & Physiology here. I’ve found Ross to be more student friendly since it covers anatomy, physiology, microbiology, pathology, drug dosage, therapy and pharmacology in a single volume.
This is a complete study guide that should support your core anatomy learning requirements in med school. It also has recall / revision notes, quizzes, practice tests, diagrams and color illustrations. I also believe there’s a 3D human anatomy digital model.
Other suggestions to consider for your med school book list include:
– Clinically Orientated Anatomy (Moore & Dalley)
– Lippincott’s Illustrated Review of Biochemistry
– Essential Cell Biology
– Wheater’s Functional Histology
– General and Systematic Pathology
– Integrated Pharmacology
– Medical Pharmacology at a Glance
– Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine
– Med School Confidential
