Anatomy

By now you are pretty familiar with anatomy. But rying to memorize and visualize the main parts of the nervous system can be difficult. This site helped me out a ton and it’s free!

Gait Vectors

Another free to use site that allows you to easily see the ground reaction forces during all of phases of gait.

Flash Cards

Simple and effective. Not only do you learn as you flip through them, you learn while you’re creating them. If you are always on the go and want to bring your cards with you, they can become a little cumbersome. Thanks to smart phones and app developers, this problem has been solved. One of my favorites is Quizlet. Not only can you create flashcards but it will quickly and effectively create practice quizzes and games with the information you provided! Brainscape is another great app that has a unique way of helping you to retain information. One other strategy I use to organize my thoughts and information is mind mapping. MindMeister is a great app that can help you do just that.
