I started with Anatomy: Snells review Head and Neck thrice. It took a day to complete that section along with back (spinal cord and vertebrae) region. Thorax i did main things Heart is outmost important topic. You need to know all boundries, relations, supply as well. I did look at Lungs and Ribs etc but superficially. Abdomen region from First Aid and it was enough given in section GIT.
