A mnemonic is a way to make it easier for you to remember anatomical structures by linking them to a catchy phrase or letters sequence. It is easier to remember the muscles supplied by the musculocutaneous nerve if you linked them to BBC the famous British radio & TV as: B: Biceps brachii, B: Brachialis and C: Coracobrachialis.The globe is for a diagram.
Here we tried to simplify anatomical diagrams to schematic and nearly geometrical graphs to concentrate more on the core information not on the shape or the appearance itself.The book is for a summary verse. Note that in muscle groups, paragraphs are denoted O for origin, I for insertion, N for nerve supply, A for action and finally NB for notes.The topics were written in order as mentioned in the heading of each chapter.
Notice that not all topics are covered, only those who are either extremely important or can be explained via a mnemonic, diagram or a short paragraph.This book is simply my study notes during my undergraduate study, then the exams for the master’s degree in surgery, and finally the step A exam of the membership of the royal college of surgeons (MRCS). And don’t worry, I passed them all, so you can depend on this book for a valid reason.Anatomy Studymate is not meant to replace anatomy text books.
Unless coffee mate was meant to replace coffee. Think of it like a side dish, that can’t feed you alone. Yet, it adds a flavor to your meal.Ok!! Enough coffee and dinner talk. Bottom line, this book can really help you in many ways. When you study a topic for the first time, it can offer you a simpler –or sometimes deeper insights. Writing the mnemonics in your main source next to each topic is a good idea. Also during revision, I think that condensing the important topics of anatomy in 150 low-text and details-free pages can be helpful.
At last during your postgraduate study, this book can be particularly helpful to remember the highlights and the hot topics, which are always the core of exams like masters, PhD and even MRCS.
