I am a total newbie here and I apologize if some of my questions sound stupid.
So I have to take the Excelsior Anatomy & Physiology exam (Exam 506) in less than two months. I am not in a nursing program
or anything like that. I just need this 6 hours credit for some other program that I am applying to, which happened to be same for many of you guys. I have purchased the "Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology by Martini/Nath" along with some DVDs and Course guide that was suggested when I was applying for the exam. However the book is very thick and I dont think I can finish it and also have time to review if I want to read every details. Also I think there are way too much information in the book than I need to learn. I purchased the practice exam too, and took the first set of 100 questions. I would like to know what is the best note/study guide/book out there that can prepare me for this exam within this short time period that I have? I have heard about cliff notes, lisa Larend's notes, Anatomy & Physiology ECE, and some others but I dont know which one is the best so I really appreciate it if someone could help me out here.
Thanks in advance.
Quote from cheltoe
i used study group 101 and cliff notes for a&p and got a b.
i used similar resources, study group 101
and anatomy and physiology for dummies, and got an a. study group 101 is very good! if i had to pick the best resources (i used a few),
they would be the studygroup101 notes and the practice tests that excelsior offers.
you can do it in a fairly short amount of time using what you have+sg101, i would say. i studied off and on for a few weeks, but really buckled down for about a few days using mostly those resources.
i used read please text-to-speech software (http://www.readplease.com/
) to go through the study guide notes. there is a free version. that way, the info was going in my ears and eyes.
