OMG. I just got home from taking my A&P I lab exam. I hope to heaven that I passed.
I really don't know how I did, but I know that I didn't do nearly as great as I have done on the lecture exams (I got 2 A's and a B with only one more lecture exam to go).
It was multiple choice, sort of. I thought...GREAT! Multiple Choice! Awesome! I can do that! The exam covered IDing tissue cell types (name, location, function) via microscope, IDing bones and their different parts, and articulations. Ok. I know the bones pretty well. I have a great booklet that came with my A&P text that has fantastic labeled pictures of the bones. I know the tissue cell types and the articulations. BUT THIS TEST WAS AWFUL! I swear they asked me everything that I didn't know.
Multiple choice...I'm thinking a, b, c, d, e...something like that, since that was what our lecture exams consisted of. But Noooooo! They just listed ALL OF THE BONES/BONE PARTS and we had to pick from the list. I am talking a list of 30-50 bones at a time. Give me a break! And they would just have a bone sitting there & the question would be...what is the name of what is marked (it would have a piece of blue tape on part of the bone or something along those lines). Ok. I know the bones. Put a skeleton in front of me and I could label them and probably get 95% of all the bones and their parts correct. Put a bone by itself & I am lost. Ok, not completely lost, I can pretty well figure out a femur from a humerus, but...gimme a break! When are any of us just going to see a femur sitting around by itself. "Oh...sorry miss so-and-so...is this your femurI just found lying in the hallway?" :angryfire
Ok...I'm just venting. I really shouldn't cry over it...it's over. Nothing I can do about it now. Just hope I passed it & move on.
