I'm currently going through the final push to complete my A&P II course. I have a professor who used to teach med students and he is AWFUL. There are no powerpoints, no clinical examples, just videos (dissection videos from the 70s) and lecture (with very sloppy handwritten notes on the board).
I feel like I'm about to have a nervous breakdown. Seriously. I have never gotten such low grades in my life. I studied for two weeks straight (4 hours a night) prior to the last test, and I only got 1% above the class average (which was a 67%). I read all 4 chapters, I studied meticulously after each class, the last test had more math questions on it than anything (How to calculate a GFR with x/y/z, what is the creatnine levels, etc etc). He said if we got a 70% on the last test that is "above collegiate level" (what does that even mean?!?!)
I want to know.. how do you get through classes like this? How do you avoid breaking down? What do you do to keep pushing yourself?
