  • A gift to All of Us

    By Cord2510
    Professor Bernd has created an enduring legacy with her accessible, meticulous, affordable anatomy guides. Previously material of this quality for the anatomy student would either be unavailable or cost prohibitive. It is great to see knowledge that has been out of reach for so many, now freely available to all. Well done Professor Bernd!!!
  • This one is great too!

    I’ve used this and the rest of Dr. Bernd’s Dissection Manuals, and each one is truly fantastic. Anatomy is a notorious course, but the books honestly made a huge difference. From the crystal-clear explanations and pictures to the useful quizzes, you won’t be disappointed either.
  • Excellent Dissector

    By MS1 2014
    Seamless dissector, written with the understanding that students probably haven’t seen this material before. Zero errors, as far as we could tell, and very easy-to-follow. This dissector will eliminate the time you waste trying to understand the dissection instructions and allow you to focus on understanding anatomy. The hyperlinked glossary is extremely helpful.
  • great anatomy guide!

    Clear instructions and great pictures of cadavers. The glossary is very detailed and incredibly helpful.
  • Love these dissectors

    By jesskb2188
    I reviewed one of the other dissector books as well, but I can’t emphasize enough how great these books are. The iPad usability is perfect, the glossary/index, quiz, and flashcard features are essential — definitely don’t hesitate, it’s totally worth it.
  • Upper Limb and Back

    By Gyunov100
    Dr. Paulette Bernd has a good way of summing up the important components of upper limb, and putting it together into one page for you to have a comprehensive understanding of the material. Amazing study guide!!!!!!
  • very helpful

    By first year med student
    Don’t know how anyone gets through dissections without this. Clear pictures, thorough glossasry, easy to follow instructions, and helpful reminders throughout. Very thoughtfully designed and simple to nagivate. I’ve used this not only during dissection but also a study resource for exams.
