The Muscular System


Human Muscle Flashcards - Print them out and use them!

"The flashcards saved my life! They made testing on all three aspects (name, origin, and insertion) so easy.
I printed them, cut them out, and laminated them. I used a dry erase-marker to take notes and label them
and could then simply erase them to test myself. I will keep them close throughout my career!"
