Main con: The only downside I've found is that the cards are arranged by body region rather then system. Perhaps thats for some medical/nursing/diagnostic/etc. courses? I don't know why. But-it's kind of a pain for the Human AP classes I'm in. Fyi if you're taking a detailed med class like gross anatomy, I'd tend to agree with other reviewers that there is not enough info on the cards. You'd probably still find them helpful but you'd also need something else.
Edition update: Jsuk, I'm like some of the other older students in that I almost always buy older editions of reference materials & class books to save $$. Sooo, before ordering I looked at a friends 3rd edition to see if I preferred those. The 3rd edition is essentially the same as the 4th. Oddly, the 3rd has the name of the tissue (ie: muscle, bone, etc) is on the front of the flash card as well as the back. I have no idea why Netter's did that. My friend said it wasn't a big deal but it was kind of a pain to continually have to cover the top part of the front when testing herself. I was told that this was not the case w/ the 4th edition. That they deleted the info on the top/front of the card & only had a picture of the tissue. That is not the case. Netter's has changed (somewhat) whats on the front of the card but they still give you an awfully big heads up (ie: "Muscles of Thigh: Anterior View). This is probably not a big deal to most folks but I would have preferred less info on the front, more on the back... But, when Amazon dropped the price on this edition to under $30, that wasn't much more than the 3rd editions on Ebay so I just went ahead and ordered the 4th edition. I'm sure there are some other changes but nothing major stands out so far. The box, and some of the cards, are more colorful. Woohoo! To be completely frank, I think that you'll be happy with either edition you pickup. Probably even the 2nd edition set is very good but I haven't seen those cards. If you're willing to take a chance, the 2nd edition is incredible inexpensive on some sites.
Oh, fyi for all the OCD/Anal people out there. The cards may arrive a tad bit damaged. They shift in their box so during shipment they must bang back and forth a little. The only thing "damaged" were the dividing card tabs. But they only got slightly bent, etc. Nothing important to me but my girlfriend seemed surprised and frankly a little fixated on the fact that they were clearly brand new, in shrink wrap but still less than 100%. So if it caught her attention & you are the kind of person this would bother, maybe pick them up at BAM.
My final recomendation? If you have to take college or post grad level Human Anatomy & Physiology 1 & 2 or perhaps something less intensive but still hard (ie: Massage Therapy national boards) AND you're willing to study, BUY THESE! Whichever edition you want is fine but just go ahead and pick these up. I guarentee they will help & that they're worth the $$.
Take care and good luck with your classes/program!!
First: Cards are beautifully illustrated, a lot of images for anatomy are either too real and hard to study, or too cartoonish with the same result. these cards are moderately cartoonish, while still being clear enough to immediately recognize the same muscles when we did the cadaver lab.
Some of the multiple labeled ones have the right angle and design to hold more, but they don't, because it doesn't match with a certain criteria. for example, i added Buccinator, Platysma and orbicularis oris to the 'facial expressions' card. they may not be facial expression muscles, and you can find these on other cards, but i was trying to keep my pack count down.
it is a little overwhelming at first, so i REALLY recommend sitting down with JUST your word list for this week, look through the index, and pull out only those cards. if you try to pull out all bones, or all muscles, you'll get overwhelmed. amazing set though, i'm SO GLAD i got them. i just wish they were laminated, it gets a little awkward taking them in the cadaver lab. O_o
However, Now that I am on the limbs, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the people who made these flashcards do not know what flashcards are. Now, each of the flash cards displays a title on the picture side of the card. Which is okay, as long as the title is not answer. This was the case for thorax, abdomen and pelvis. For example; the card title says "Pelvic Girdle: superior view" and then there are a few figures numbered and on the back side the numbers have the answers.
However, of the 65 cards of the "upper limb" section which I just brought to the coffee shop, ONLY 10 ARE USABLE AS FLASHCARDS BECAUSE THE ANSWER IS NOT THE TITLE. LITERALLY 55 OF THESE CARDS have only a SINGLE number and the TITLE OF THE FLASH CARD is the answer to that number which is on the PICTURE SIDE OF THE FLASHCARD. How are you supposed to study flash cards that have the ANSWER ON THE SAME SIDE AS THE QUESTION. This is infuriating and a massive waste of my time. And because the cards have a gloss finish, I can't just use a sharpie to deface the ANSWER THAT IS ON THE SAME SIDE AS THE QUESTION. What were these people thinking? If I wanted labeled pictures of anatomy, I would have gotten the textbook.
See the pictures I have added for examples of poorly thought out design
