Anatomy Kaplan Anatomy has much less details!

Hi, every body
I'm new to the usmle
i just started to study step 1 a week ago
i began with anatomy from kaplan lecture notes
but i feel that this is not the anatomy i used to
it's not the full information , this is not the full description as i used in faculty
the material was much bigger
is this normal?
or this is kaplan it is what will be examined
do i need to revise anatomy from full source?
or i need to forget the old days and concentrate in the new era of learning

usmle bothers abt things that a doctor should know to practice safely. u need to know only 2-3 % of what u read in ur school. and only clinical things. if u r going to read pelvic anatomy from some big book, u r going to pass step 1 in five years.

Read this.

Default Welcome to USMLE!

The USMLE Review Books that you will be reading (not only anatomy but all other subjects all across the board) will be what they call it "high yield" review books.

This means that they have shortened the text and summarized the concepts to give you only the details you need to answer USMLE questions. They will not give the full details as you used to see in your med school.

This is actually something good, because otherwise you will spend years and years just to prepare for Step 1.

You will notice this fact even more when you start reading First Aid
