USMLE Books Anatomy book little more detailed than Kaplan

Hi, I am weak in Anatomy, and Kaplan Lecture Notes may not be enough for me. Can someone recommend a easy anatomy book that has more details than Kaplan but not necessarily overbearing?

Thanks!

Me: Step 1 268, anatomy band exceeded available space on the higher end.
Kaplan is more than enough. Anything else would be overkill. I know this because I bought Last, Snell and BRS as well. Never touched them. Btw, I hate Kaplan in general but it's OK for anatomy if you use it well.
The main shitty problem with Kaplan is that the images suck, and for anatomy, the key is to know images. Use Kaplan and see electron micrographs and histology images from Junquira. See images from Netter's atlas. Find each image in Netter that corresponds to the idiotic line drawing for gross in Kaplan. Neuroanatomy is way more than what's tested. Just know your images. Anything more detailed than Kaplan would be a royal waste of time.
