Love these dissectors

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

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!!!!!!
