I own both Atlas of Human Anatomy: With Netteranatomy.com (Netter Basic Science) and Grant's Atlas of Anatomy, and what I've found is that they really cannot be compared.

Therefore, it's best used in the lab when that complicated mess is EXACTLY what you are seeing. In all fairness, there are little schematic drawings that simplify important muscle relationships.

It's a great book but after a while i got tired of it not having any text. I checked out Gray's Anatomy for Students at my library and I'm definitely going to purchase it soon, sadly ... I have sold this book already, if you're like me and need more than just visuals, get the best of both worlds with Gray's Anatomy for Students.
Netter's Anatomy book is AWESOME!
