A&P 1 and 2

  1. Hello everyone......I am finishing up A&P 1 and should pull through with a B, or B-. Was A&P 2 harder, or easier for you. I am taking the second half of this class over an 8-week summer semester, so I can be done with it when I start my clinicals in August. Just looking for some feedback as to what to expect. Thanks in advance to everyone!!!!

    A and P 2 was equal, bookwork and studying wise. It might be a little easier to get through, though, just because you know what you are getting into now and can prepare better. And a B is great for that class!

    i thought a&p 2 was harder. it focused more on the physiology and i was better at memorizing the names of the muscles & bones than learning the physiological stuff behind it all.

    I guess it depends on your class structure. Some A and P have 1 for anatomy, and 2 for physiology. My school has 1 for both, then 2 for both (each had half of the systems). Then we had A and P 201, which was nothing but physiology.

    Found it a lot easier.

    I found them to be about the same. I don't know that they followed any strict guidelines about what the difference was between I & II at my school though. We took them in an intensive - one semester, first half was I, second half was for II - so it all seemed like a continuum of the same class as opposed to something else.

    I loved A&P I came out with an A in the class. I just finished up A&P II with a B and I do not wish to ever take it again!! LOL It was okay, you just have to take a different approach to it. A&P I had tons and tons of memorization whereas in my A&P II class, there was very little memorization and TONS of physiology. Good luck!!
