STUDY and KNOW these word components. They will be an enormous aid in learning the terms of GROSS Anatomy. From this point on, there is no substitute for STUDYING. Do not do it all in one sitting. Constant review and quizzing each other is the best way to learn it and know it. One super way to learn all of the terms you are about to be
