    Eeek! I'm taking A & P I and Chem over the summer semester. I start in two weeks. I'm getting nervous! It's pretty intensive... we meet every day for three hours for 8 weeks. I just finished up Anatomy Structure & Function, so I hope that that will give me some help with A & P!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Is it a good idea to take chemistry in the summer? I am also considering this.

    i'm wondering if its difficult because its summer.. unlike most summer classes that i've taken before, this A&P class isnt as much "watered down" for the summer as it is literally "condensed" for the summer... i was wondering if it is this difficult in the spring/fall???? if so, i'm debating about going that route... only reason being, that i'm taking 2 other classes along with this one over the summer

    I'm nervous about A&P also. Being a nurse is my dream, and this is the make you or break you class. Fail, and you are out of the program. 80% or above on everything including homework, I understand the rationale, but that is so terrifying! I was a royal screw-up in biology in high school, very barely passing with a C-. I just went to half.com and purchased the physiology coloring book, I bought the anatomy one yesterday. I know the physiology one has ECG reading assistance, I think that should be extremely beneficial later in the year. The only problem is the book is used, and 15 out of the 151 pages are colored. I hope the ECG page is not one of them!

    Not only in the summer! I struggled thru A&P. Now I'm taking summer classes of Micro and Sociology. I'm finding micro...not necessarily easier...but I have a great instructor and he explains absolutely everything...unlike my physiology instructor (arrrggghhh). But Micro will be my last 'science' class. Can't wait! When nursing school starts again in August I'll be able to concentrate just on my nursing courses and that's it.

    I took A&P II in the summer and it was awesome, very challenging, of course. But- our instructor was the best, it made all the difference. He was an MD. He started out as a medic in Viet Nam, then became an MD.
    He was very hard on us, but for the right reasons. He wanted us to know our stuff.
    I enjoyed the class so much, and did so well, I didn't want it to end. So, I signed up to be a tutor, which I really enjoyed.

    Also, knowing a physician who respects nurses, and wants to be involved in their education was a refreshing change!

    Thanks to him, I can still spell ciliated pseudostratified columnar epithelium!
