Gray's Anatomy is the most complete anatomy book but is not useful at all to medical student.

Atlas of Human Anatomy by Netter is the most celebrated Atlas. Excellent drawings but it does not teach.
Also photographic atlases do not teach first year med students.
Buy the venerable Sobotta Atlas of Anatomy when you get your M.D.

It is unfortunate that most books do not teach the medical student what he needs to know: the shape of a structure, location in relation to other structures, and its course, its journey in three dimensional space in the human body.

There are two books that do this:
1. Essentials of Human Anatomy 9th Edition
by Russell T. Woodburne , William E. Burkel
(If you can find the original edition, Woodburne only author, you have a gem!).


2.  Cranial Nerves for Medical Students: with clinical correlations by Dr. Michael M. Nikoletseas, on Google Play and Amazon.

Cranial Nerves for Medical Students: with clinical correlations by Dr. Michael M. Nikoletseas This is a unique book. Written by a professor of Medicine who spent years teaching medical anatomy in the laboratory as well the lecture hall of USA medical schools, this book teaches you the cranial nerves in three dimensional space. You need to know the cranial nerves in three dimensional space; knowing the cranial nerves in lists, tables and mnemonics is useless for practicing physicians. An additional unique feature of this book is the connections it makes to neuroanatomy which is traditionally taught in the second semester to first-year medical students in the USA. Lastly, physicians, especially neurosurgeons and radiologists, will find the detailed tracing of cranial nerves in the cranium useful
