Anatomy Anatomy high or low yield !!

I know it is a commonly asked Q but the different opinions add to the confusion ..
is it worth while to study it from kaplan + HY NA+ FA+ usmle world Qbank , or just study FA + Qbank ??
I had 2 of my friends tell me they only had about 6 Qs in the entire exam , while other posts on the net say that they had 6 in each block ...
any advice would be much appreciated ...

I just got done with Kaplan QBank (systemic) and realized that the mostly tested areas of Anatomy are upper limb (brachial plexus lesions) and Neuro (combining with CT and MRIs)

So in my opinion, Kaplan + FA should do it very well.. U may see the MRIs n CTs from High Yeild for neuro though.. otherwise I think FA covers Neuro pretty well and considering most of Neuro is pure memorization (like the functions of thalamic nuclei etc) I dont think High Yield neuroanatomy should be done unless u r a perfectionist with lots and lots of space in ur brain to retain stuff

Thx for the reply ...
u make a good point , but considering that NA is the mostly asked about sub , and that HY NA is 160 pages - just 20 pages more than kaplan - it might be good ...
but the real Q is : is it worth it to waste time on kaplan for gross anatomy / embreology and histo or is FA enough ??
