"I definitely feel that I was able to learn vital information from this video. If you're in anatomy classes, this is the video for you."
Lots of info - dry presentation

"I am a high school physiology and biology teacher. I purchased this to hopefully add to my collection of visual teaching tools. The video is very detailed in the structures of the skeleton. The presenters are clear in their terminology, and the video uses subtitles to show the names of the bones as well. They use an infant and a child skeleton to help compare the differences with adults which was interesting and helpful. The 11 minutes it spends on the muscular system is better than the majority spent on skeletal system.
The video was 49 minutes long, and it was still talking about bones at about 38 minutes (spent 20 minutes on the skull alone). Overall this video has the information, but how it is delivered is VERY dry and boring. I might use it in pieces, showing 5 minutes that relates to the topic I'm going over (or the section on muscles to review the major muscle groups and actions). I will not show it in larger chunks, if I use it at all. My other big complaint with the format of the DVD was that it had a very poor disc menu. You cannot see what the different chapters are as you select them (when played on a computer). I will probably need to note the time of the sections I want and find them that way. This makes it difficult to use in class.
Assuming the other videos in this series are done in a similar format, I will be hesitant to purchase any others. There is much better quality video information available than this series."
