Anatomy What am missing? I am using High Yield Anatomy Series

I took what these polls (here ,here and here) say and I started studying anatomy from high yield series.

High Yield Gross Anatomy
High Yield Neuroantomy
High Yield Embryology


What's missing?

Do I need to study HISTOLOGY and if so from where I should study it?

Cause I didn't see poll about it and I figured that it will be in the anatomy book
should I buy High Yield Histology

Another thing
I studied it from the third edition and if u see those link it is fourth edition
so am I also missing things with the outdated versions???


Thanks

there is no specific chapter for anatomy in FA it is dealt with in systems. like when u will do cvs u will find first few pages devoted to cvs anatomy what fa authors consider to be high yield.

about histology I think whatever given in kaplan anatomy book first few chapters is enough. while doing histology from kaplan focus what is the special histologic feature of organ which u are doing,
why is it special? does it have any functional correlation?
if there is some disease process in that organ how will the histo findings change?

and of course u should be able to identify basic histo structure's like parts in a nephron, amyloid staining, stomach histology, ileum, jejunum, portal triad, lymph node section, normal muscular artery, glomerular membrane, thyroid follicle to name a few.

try to c these images on numerous free histo sites on net and also correlate it with pathologic microscopy image.
hope this helps.

Yes but what I believe he's saying is that if you do Kaplan anatomy in this case first few chapters, your histology will be covered. otherwise, depending on the amount of time you have a quick read through HY won't hurt, I personally did BRS histology, b/c I have enough time on my hands, and its a really good book with clinical correlates (kinda helps with histopathology also).

HY should be fine, because according to a lot of ppl FA is good enough for Anatomy, embryo and histo....

Neuro I would definitely do HY like nobody's business! and look over Genetics also (unless ur doing Kaplan, then that should suffice)

hope this helps

The undercover of the front cover of the first aid has a table that tells you what pages have anatomy.
