congrats!! what did u use to study?
mostly used these: anatomy and physiology for dummies, isbn:074654220. it's clear and concise. i found it helpful.
studygroup101 anatomy and physiology study guide. this is a great resource!
however, i found my mind wandering as i tried to read these, even though they are very good. so, i used readplease2003 (it's free) (http://www.readplease.com/
) to help. it is a text-to-speech program. i copied and pasted the study guide chapter into the program and had it read to me at a fairly quick pace, faster than i read to myself. you can follow along as it reads and it highlights each word that it is reading so i found myself focusing on the text more. i read through the sg101 stuff twice this way! one time early on and again this week to review and i found stuff i just didn't catch the first time around.
i got the excelsior practice tests, as many have suggested. i looked up any concept i missed. today, the exam had a few questions like the practice test on the real exam. now, i totally believe in spending that extra amount of money. if $60 can help you pass so you don't waste that $$$, it's worth it.
standard deviants anatomy vol. 1 - this is a dvd. it's easy to follow. i have used standard deviants' for a lot of things. it helps. sometimes, i just didn't feel like sitting there reading for hours so i would put the dvd on and fold laundry or something.
used these a little bit:
an slightly older edition of martini's anatomy and physiology which the excelsior study guide recommends. i used this to look things up and to see the pictures (good photos and diagrams). it looks like a very good text book, but i just didn't read it much at all.
