Anatomy refers to the science of investigating a body’s internal structure. The head and neck region is one of the most complex areas featured in the medical gross anatomy curriculum. Present study was conducted in Department of Anatomy, Pt. B. D. Sharma PGIMS, Rohtak. Study was carried out on 200 students of MBBS 1st year, in which two groups were made with 100 students in each group. Hundred students were taught about the bones on colored skull and other 100 students were taught on non-colored skull. Thereafter, a test was conducted via questionnaire. The results were tabulated and analyzed. Group of students taught on colored skull scored >70% marks in the test with <30% wrong answers as compared to the students taught on non-colored skull scored <60% marks in test with 42.5% of the wrong answers. Relations of different bones with each other in colored skull are better retained and give more clarity in understanding anatomy of skull.
