The Memmler's Structure and Function of the Human Body book.
I'm currently using that book to study. (It's also good if you want a short insight on Bio.) You may want to find the latest edition on it.

Edit: I am now considering that an older version would be best.

One way to study is to use the topics and such listed in the rules and study from that.
If you are just beginning, you can watch Khan Academy, Bozeman Science, etc. to get an introduction to the event.

For anatomy, the first thing you need is a good college-level textbook. You need to read the chapters concerning the three systems in focus for the year because A&P is just one of those events that you need to know a lot about in order to succeed. I know there are specific topics outlined in the rules, but trust me when I say that event supervisors often don't give two cents for those "rules." Basically, anything about those systems is up for grabs.

I would recommend one of two books. The first (and arguably easier) book is Human Anatomy and Physiology, by Marieb and Hoehn. While being in-depth, the writing also employs relatively little abstruse language and the explanations are very clear. Diagrams in this book are also fantastic. There is a 9th edition, but the 7th and 8th editions will serve you just as well (and for a much cheaper price, too).

The second book I would recommend is Fundamentals of Anatomy and Physiology, by Martini. It is slightly more in-depth than Marieb but also more difficult to comprehend. Diagrams in this book are also fantastic. Personally, I would go with Marieb. Martini sacrifices a bit more clarity than I believe is necessary for some descriptions.

Both books can be found on Amazon at the following links:

http://www.amazon.com/Human-Anatomy-Phy ... 410&sr=1-3

http://www.amazon.com/Fundamentals-Anat ... physiology

After going through the textbook, you should then move on to online resources, especially for diseases. Mayoclinic.org is a great place to start for diseases, but you should also look around as much as possible. Try to stick with more reliable sources (except for Wikipedia...sometimes they pull questions straight from Wikipedia content :? ). Online course notes from universities wouldn't be a bad idea.

Also, make sure you are very familiar with the training handouts on soinc.org. I have seen questions pulled straight from those too.

I hope this helps!

I like using the PowerPoint on soinc.org. It really helps me remember a lot of the material, and it's worked out well medal-wise for me in the past. :P
I'm not sure where I am, but I could probably tell you how fast I'm going! *ba dum tss* :mrgreen:

I don't really think you need a college-level or any-level textbook for this event. I have done this event for 3 years in a row, and each year during state I got first. I agree with the fact though that supervisors don't care about the rules too. And I do recommend using the training handout and PowerPoint (which are both the same thing just in a different format) for your notes. After that, you should find some great diagrams of (basically) everything to put in your notes. Also look up more on each part of each system and try to memorize a lot of each because, as this year has 3 systems, there isn't very much room on 1 page for a lot of notes. I also recommend knowing your notes like the back of your hand. For every year I've been in state (every year I've tried out), I was always in stations and wasting time trying to find the answer can cost you questions. Other than that, good luck, because this is a fairly hard event.. :D

Does anyone know how the three systems are weighted? Like are the going to be more cardiovascular system questions... or which system will the test cover more???

I don't see any rules that specify the weighting of the scoring of the three different systems, so it would just depend on the test writer. Some (hopefully most) will write a test with the points evenly distributed, while others may leave one or two of the systems in the dust.

So if you get a question wrong in quizzing, is there no way to find out the right answer?
