Keith moore is better than Snell. But majority of studemts refer to BD Chourasia. you can take Moore as a reference.


BD Chaurasia when used alongside your Grants atlas is the best I can recommend.Create sometime to flip through the clinicals in Moore.

BDC + Grants atlas = Grays for students + Blue boxes from Moore

I think BDC is very complicated in explaining concepts. its very wordy. But in grays students there are very good illustrations and realistic diagrams which will make u understand in a better way.

Studying only grays for students may not be a great help from exam point of view so u can supplement it with Kazi's Exam oriented anatomy.

I hope everyone got my point.


My opinion is:BDC might seem impossible at the start of your anatomy programme.This is because,in agreement with asutoshsahu,there are no realistic diagrams.Believing that you are an active participant in your gross dissection sessions,you begin to find BDC more of a companion ,as the descriptions are not too ambiguous and the descriptions flow along with your dissection experience at the gross anatomy lab.Descriptions are also well-outlined,so you can have a good essay writing ability in preps for your incourses right from the start. As a newly incoming medical student with all the enthu of becoming a medical doctor,Keith Moore will seem alluring and interesting.Yes it is a great book,no doubt.But when work load begins to increase,especially with physiology and biochemistry to cover,students end up running back to BDChaurasia.WISH YOU THE BEST.

I think its best to use Snell .....stick to one book!


stick to chaurasia for exams- selections are better accesible, and easier to recall. Use K & M as reference. You have biochem and phsio too- remember. You can brush up on anatomy with the bigger books later
