This attractive, newly designed set of Barronís Anatomy Flash Cards makes an ideal study aid for med school students, nursing students, and health care trainees who are preparing for tests. Each card pictures a human body part labeled with its medical name, location in the body, and function. A total of 265 4" x 6" cards show muscles, bones, and organs, and are color coded according to their general function in the human body. An important new feature in this second edition is a related Internet resource that contains electronic color images of each flash card. Students can now connect to Barronís special anatomy Web site and enter a unique code allowing them access to the interactive Web site. Once logged on, students can use the siteís interactive technology to test themselves on every detail contained on the cards, and even create playlists of particular systems or areas where they require further study. The cards come boxed with a full-color, anatomically accurate poster that shows the human body and its major parts, as well as a toggle so cards can be pulled out and studied on-the-go. The poster unfolds to size 11 3/4" x 16 1/2" .
