  • Review of Clinically Oriented Anatomy
    This book has excellent tables, clinical cases, and illustartions. Beyond that I thought this book was pretty useless. The smaller book by the same authors suffice for med school, but the larger version is too wordy. The new student version by Gray's anatomy is a far better text. Use that and a Netter and you'll ace your anatomy class. Also the text by Woodbury is pretty good also, and so is Last's anatomy....more info
  • Excellent text
    This book is simply astounding. I found it a pleasure to read, reasonably comprehensive, and well worth the cost. As a teaching assistant of Anatomy and Physiology at the Undergrad level, I've seen quite a few A&P texts. This one is not only much less expensive, but easier to read, more informative, and more professional....more info
  • Excellent Book on regional anatomy
    Kieth L.Moor seems to be a student of Dr Grant who is the author of many books on anatomy.His "Grant's Method of Anatomy"was a masterpiece.Keith's "Clinically Oriented Anatomy " is much ahead of that one.In it's presence you do not need any other book or atlas.The only defiency is Neuroanatomy....more info
  • Great book, excellent reference
    This book is quite thorough for anatomy and although very wordy, I think it covers a lot of anatomical information that every med student should know. I used this book as a reference for learning the facts in my anatomy classes. I also found the following to be an excellent source:
    Spinal Anatomy Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers
    ISBN: 0971999600
    The second book had similar type questions to my anatomy exams in med school. My advice is to get both books....more info
  • Better than what was available before..but room for improvement.
    This is an excellent textbook of anatomy with good descriptions, decent drawings, good tables, and pretty good clinical correlations. The problem with this book is that it is very wordy. I found that reading the entire chapters in this book was not that beneficial and not a good use of time. What was better was to read the condensed version "Essential Clinical Anatomy" , skim the chapters in the big book for additional details and clinical correlations, and then use Netter, Grant, and/ or Rohen atlases for as supplements....more info
  • A & P made EZ
    This book is really a great book. It really explains difficult concepts clearly and concisely. I have never taken A&P before, but after reading this, it probably won't be so hard. Some of the pictures are taken from Grant's (I have this book too and it's really good)and are very clear. I would highly recommend reading this book if you are going in to the medical field. It's so interesting and easy to understand....more info
  • The Bible
    Without a doubt, the Bible for first year medical students. The book thoroughly breaks down everything you could possibly need to know for your anatomy course, and then some. Providing excellent clinical correlations in their blue boxes and end of the chapter case studies, this book is an absolute must to supplement your Netters, Rohen, and Chung....more info
  • Comprehensive but severely lacking
    Disorganized, contains inaccuracies, ugly pictures and a layout which looks like it's from the 70's, horribly distorted americanized latin (why destroy two beautiful languages by mixing them like this I will never understand) but the most comprehensive clinical anatomy textbook there is....more info
  • Can't beat Moore's Anatomy
    Ok, I am just starting medical school. So far I am 120 pages into this book. I like it very much - it is very readable book and has made many concepts clear to me. Some q-banks reference this book (Appleton & Lange Anatomy for one). One very successful USMLE tester(268/99)credits reading the blue boxes in Moore before the exam with being the most high yield Anatomy study for the Step 1 exam. Beating HY Anatomy and BRS Anatomy. I have both HY Anatomy and BRS Anatomy - however, reading this book gives the more exam important concepts and mechanisms the USMLE Step 1 test is changing towards. ...more info
  • Its a very good book to start with
    I found Moore's anatomy very useful at the start of my anatomy course. Its very clearly written and the illustratiosn are great as well as the tables and charts. Its very useful especially when you are starting to study a specific region or system. I must say though that it did become a little unspecific and general when i advanced through my course so i reccommend this book for beginners in the area of anatomy....more info
  • good service
    I was satisfied with the service. I received my book quick. The only problem that I had was the condition of book....more info
  • Honest Opinion (2.5 really)
    I am not a big fan of this textbook.
    Nothing was concise, things were confusing.
    If you have to know the branches of the arteries and nerves, it'll be impossible to use this book.
    Get something like Thieme or BRS, more to the point (especially BRS). Pictures weren't that great either (granted its no sobotta, but still)
    It is however still "clinically oriented" so depends on the university and their teachings.
    I find it impossible to memorize anything from this or even make good notes....more info
  • A superb lesson in anatomy
    This book clearly and concisely teaches all aspects of anatomy. Not too much depth, but definately not too little. Others have complained about the pictures. Yes, they are Grants and I agree that Netters are much better, however, these illustrations do instruct well....more info
  • Rave review for Moore anatomy book
    I thoroughly enjoyed studying anatomy with the Moore's book. The illustrations are great--I especially found the individual drawings of the leg and arm muscles helpful, and the 3-D drawings of the pelvic region helped me to better visualize this complex area. I was able to study most of the time from Moore and only had to use the Color Atlas of Anatomy as a reference.

    The text was clearly written and very detailed. At times, it was more detailed than my first year anatomy class, but I was able to skip or skim these sections. I don't think I ever found Moore to be lacking in information.

    I found the boxes highlighting attachments, function, or distribution for nerves, vessels, and muscles to be very helpful. They proved to be a quick reference.

    Finally, the blue boxes with clinical information made anatomy so much more interesting. I learned many relevant facts and applied, clinical anatomy....more info

  • Excellent Verbage and WORTH the Extra Time!
    When I was in Medical Anatomy Courses, this book was my saving grace! If there is ever a time that you do not understand what the lecturer is saying, Moore will have a good section of text on the topic. The best thing to do, is go to that section-- ex: Muscles of the Neck--- and learn all the muscles names, Origins and Insertions, which ones are being used in which motion, the nerves that inervate them, to what level of the spine, the arteries and where they come from, the veins and where they go to, etc, etc... Moore will give clinical examples too. If someone cannot move their chin upward, which muscle or nerve might be effected etc...

    Unlike Netter's and Gray's Anatomy texts, which are praised for their illustrations and details... Moore's emphasis is verbal (not visual). The pictures are more general, cartoonish, not like a cadaver. Many students did not appreciate this book for that reason, it seemed too wordy to them. That is quite understandable during the rigorous schedule of Medical Training. There were many times I did not have time to read it as much as I would have liked. There are times when memorization is all you can do. However, if one does take the time to read Moore, they will surely remember the details of the Anatomy Structures very well.

    This book would be EXCELLENT for any pre-medical students the summer before entering Medical School. I wish I could go back in time and do that myself. Anatomy lecture and Anatomy Lab is one of the more challenging subjects in Graduate level programs. It is required that you know a great volume of new terms and structures in infinite detail.

    Good Luck, and Happy Anatomy Reading!

    Here is the low down. This book is not a book that you can even consider reading through! It is, however, one of the best references that you can buy. I felt like the text was clear and detailed on every anatomical part that I wanted to know about. In medical school, there were times that I needed to reference something because I didn't understand. This book did a great job of filling that roll. It is comforting to know that I have this one on my shelf, and I am still referencing it. The pictures are clear and informative, but it is a text. It is not an Atlas or a review. It will explain things to you in words with a few picutres to supplement. In hindsight, however, it wasn't necessary. It is nice to have, but you can do without if your class doesn't requre it. ...more info
  • Moore's Anatomy text is a standard; rightfully so
    I am a medical student at Texas A&M USHSC COM. Moore's is an excellent text for basic anatomy. They have included excellent drawings and the content is complete. Added bonuses to the text include insightful clinical correlation and appropriate embryological try-ins. The text appears wordy and most medical students will try to use a review book in its stead. This would be a mistake. Students who read Moore will retain more anatomy all the way into clinicals and will be ahead of their peers who did not. Overall this is a very fine text: best used in conjunction with Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy and Langman's Medical Embryology. *I will mention here, in fact, that the embryo text by Moore (The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology) does not meet the same high standard and is wrought with errors....more info
  • Great Pre-medical Buy!!!
    I thought this book was amazing!! It was my first medical school textbook. I flipped through the pages, glassy-eyed, realizing that this was what I had been working for!

    Unfortunately, 2 years later, I ahve still not had the time to do more than use it as a reference book! I am hoping to read the entire thing sometime before retirement! Don't get me wrong, it is a great book, and I highly recommend it for medical students. However, looking back, I wish I had bought it BEFORE I came to medical school. Having the time to read the entire book, and learn the material would have been an incredible asset! Premedical students often wonder what they could be doing to prepare themselves for medical school. Buying this book and reading it would be high on my recommendation list!!!...more info

  • Very helpful!
    This textbook is especially helpful if you're taking an anatomy course. Not only does it help with the structures in anatomy, but also does a great job of explaining why they are clinically relevant. The diagrams are very neat and organized and are very helpful! Highly recommended....more info
  • Useful at all levels
    This is a wonderful textbook for anatomy at all levels.
    I have used this book as an undergrad in comparative anatomy; I used this instead of the offered text in anatomy in medical school; now I use this text in residency (physical medicine and rehabilitation) both as a personal reference and to generate presentations for students and residents.

    The illustrations are good, but netter may have some better ones. The best part of this textbook are the comprehensive tables that are really clearly organized and make learning and memorizing easier due to their intuitive layout.

    The clinical pearls are good, not always great. However, I haven't seen other books do nearly as well in their 'clinical' content as Moore.

    Great book to have on the shelf forever. By the way, my 'softcover' has through lasted years routine use....more info
  • Great!
    I received the item very quickly, and the book was in amazing shape. I would order again from you!...more info
  • Surprisingly disappointing
    Although the text did have many strong points such as clinical discussions as well as good anatomical descriptions, my anatomy class and I discovered many mistakes and misprints, especially within the charts and tables, which occured throughout the text, often conflicting with other texts as well as just being incorrect altogether. I would recommend another text for studying accurate descriptions and details concerning musculature, such as their origin and insertion as well as innervation and action. ...more info
  • Way too many errors in the text
    My medical school must have ordered an edition that hadn't been proof read. We spent more time going over the errors in the book than anything else. Half way thru the class, I was using it for a doorstop. Graphics and diagrams reversed, ugh, bad news on a test! I think I should get my money refunded. As for Atlases, I used both Netter's and Grants, both were great but Netters is perfection. One thing that was good with the Moore and Dalley text was the "blue boxes" with clinical correlations....more info
  • Loved it!
    I am a physical therapy student at Creighton University and this was the required text for our Anatomy course. It was very clinically based and that made reading it very enjoyable....more info
  • Review of anatomy written by Moore
    The pictures in the book are not always very well. And i miss the names written in latin. Because we had to lean the stuff in latin, instead of the English names....more info
  • Anatomy with clinical correlates
    A good anatomy book for the beginning medical student, although some of the terminology is either outdated or in lesser use than other anatomical names. The clinical correlates, however, are a welcome change from the presentations in other anatomy texts and assist in recall of important relationships and anatomy....more info
  • if you want to "learn" anatomy as quick as possible, it's OK
    I thing this is the perfect book for those who don't want to spend hours readind descriptive anatomy from books like Rouviere or Latarjet. But if you are counting only on this book, you're in a big mistake, cause' sometimes there's no way you can imagine what's the book trying to say, about the lacation, the function, or anything, without an Atlas or something like that.
    So you must at least study with this and a nice atlas (maybe Netter o Yokochi), so you can follow the lecture....more info
  • Excellent Book on regional anatomy
    Kieth L.Moor seems to be a student of Dr Grant who is the author of many books on anatomy.His "Grant's Method of Anatomy"was a masterpiece.Keith's "Clinically Oriented Anatomy " is much ahead of that one.In it's presence you do not need any other book or atlas.The only defiency is Neuroanatomy....more info
  • a good reference book
    Clinically Oriented Anatomy has a depth that a simple anatomy atlas cannot provide. Moreover, muscles and other parts are listed in extremely helpful tables. On the other hand, I found this book to be overwhelming, even for a medical anatomy class. It's a nice reference book to have, but to learn from this book is difficult. Perhaps the abridged version of Moore ("Baby Moore") is more useful for those who want to read cover-to-cover without having to pick and choose and skim and go back, etc....more info
  • Superb text, not so great pictures
    I used Moore's as an adjunct to studying anatomy with Netter's atlas of anatomy. I found that the text was concise, lucid, and enjoyable to read, with pertinent and important clinical examples in the form of case presentations.

    The illustrations, on the other hand, are from Grant's atlas of anatomy, and occasionally are confusing or downright obfuscating (the anterior and posterior triangles of the neck come to mind.) So I recommend reading the text, but referring to Netter's atlas when referring to pictures!...more info

  • just too clincal
    In fact it's usefull, mainly for a clinical aproach of anatomy, based on surface anatomy and changes in structure originated by injuries. however when performing dissection, that just does not help, the descriptive anatomy, is just to slim, and does not really contributes to understand the three dimensional structure of the human body. However for a quick reference could be an option. Personally prefer the testut-jacob topographic anatomy...more info
  • A must for medical and dental students!
    Keith Moore's "Clinically Oriented Anatomy" is really a leading textbook, and is a MUST for all medical students. With its great illustrations and tables, Clinically Oriented Anatomy makes every single thing in anatomy clear, not only for medical students, but for all people as well. Although I am a perclinical student, but I have to admit that the clinical blue boxes are very useful. The textbook is simply EXCELLENT!...more info
