  • Well I have done a number of different thing to remember things. I guess it would be hard to help though if i don't know which ones that you are having a hard time with. A few that I can think of that I had little reminers in my head for was the scapular looks like a spatular. the ulna and radias was another. The thumb comes first so I new that would be radias because r is first in the aplhabet. Tibia and fibula, tibia is with your big toe, toe tibia . I know I spelt most of those wrong and I hope this was helpful. Let me know of some of the bones you are having trouble and I will see what I can do to help.

  • Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy is awesome. Do you have a good textbook? I made my own flashcards, drawing everything out from the lab bones and from the textbook, and it helped me understand the details and curves, as well as all of the articulations. If you're taking anatomy, get this skill down now, because you'll need it for the brain, the kidneys, muscles, etc. Good luck, and let me know if I can help! :)

  • If you Google Bones of the body songs you'll get some cute videos that help to remember all of the 206 bones. Good Luck!
