Did you take grad level phys? If not, find one and take it. Or just audit one if you can, that way you save money. Sometimes they allow you to audit for a lower fee. If not, I found Dr Najeebs site very helpful. Wish I had watched more than just the respiratory portion! I paid for the 2 year access. I have watched other lectures, or parts of, here and there and he was helpful in other subjects areas as well. If you can really get some good studying in for physiology, it won't be so horrific. It is a major time eater. They are having a new edition of our book for that class come out for next year, so you should prob be able to get some pretty cheap of the current edition. I thought focusing on resp stuff would help me, gas laws, gas equations, etc, but really that has been very little so far. That part has been more manageable. The phys will kill you. And they talk about phys stuff in every other class so it overlaps, lol! Here is the current isbn: 978 1 4 16062 16 5. It doesn't cover everything, and it isn't even 'required' but get it and start memorizing. Or watch Dr. Najeeb repeatedly. Did you take gen chem and ochem already? I am very happy I went back and took them. Still happy I took physics too! lol
Getting your life in order so you can study is going to be more important on a day to day basis. The - you is going to watch the kids if hubby works, should we get a nanny to help with kids and housework, write out the budget/bills so hubs knows when to pay what (unless he does already), make food and shopping lists - meal planning. If he doesn't shop have him start going with you to see what you buy, brands you like, etc. If he doesn't do a lot of independent time with the kids now, have him start doing road trips with them, small and long, errand running etc - as he will have to do it with kids in tow for a couple of years. Join homeschool groups on yahoo, there are a few in the area and they make playdates for the young kids - nice to see other parents and kids even if you are going to do public school. Try to move out early to know the area, visit the beach in the summer, go to Williamsburg, amusement park, hiking, etc, whatever you all like. If you all are here and in a pattern where the family is running okay without you there all day and evening before school starts, then it will go MUCH easier the first bit of school...when you are poleaxed from the amount of stuff they want you to know, but still need to do family stuff. Est the kids doctor, dentist, etc. Everything that will need to happen without you. Think of the next 2 years, think of any and everything that will need to happen and make a master calendar. We have one on evernote that we share back and forth, along with honey-do lists and meal planning. It helps to guide the day/week so he knows what i need without my having to harp on him, lol.
And when you get here, my hubs is a stay at home dad and kids love to play with all ages. More than happy to have park days whenever.
