    Trust me you are not the only one feeling this way.Not only do I not retain the info immediatrly, I write it,record it,draw it,and spend many many hours studying it!The blood type was confusing for me also. I decided to make a chart on a poster AB ABO and etc then I read up on it using my AP book after that I compared it with the lab manual. Guess what it worked. Continue giving it your all.You managed in AP 1, you'll manage in AP 2. Keep me posted .
    Thanks everyone. Like many said before this website is a blessing. It is so nice to be able to communicate with people going through the same situation. I am also taking Pharmocology it is a requirement before you get into the program. It is really giving me a taste as to what nursing school will actually be like as far as critical thinking with different questions regarding patients. Just started but seems this class will also be a lot of work. I will keep trying my best. Thanks again

    I had my second lab session yesterday. Wow. There seems like so much to learn to the cardiovascular system. I have to know 20 parts of the human heart, 10 of the sheep's, and the pathways the arteries and veings travel (two different sets of pathways). Not to mention the stuff about the endocrine system.

    well had my first week in class. It seems good so far. I don't think the blood will be to hard. We will have our first test on tuesday for lecture and next thursday for lab. We are also going to be drawing our blood to look at through slides which seems pretty cool. I'm kinda glad to be back in school, I missed it and I like learning more about A&P.

    Now my nursing advisor told me to take Micro after this semster(for spring), but everyone tells me I should take patho next cuz it goes hand in hand. What are you all taking?

    Hope everyone is doing well so far

    I'm glad it helpped! The power point quizzes like that are how I survived A&P1.

    Another fun one for blood typing is the American Red Cross's blood matching game. It's on the first page of links here. It acctually kept me amused for awhile. It just sharpens your what blood types match what blood types skills.

    Hello all, I finally started A&P II on Saturday the 9th. A week before starting this I asked a friend of mine who had just taken the course with the same instruction that I have now, if she could give me any tips for this class. She told me to drop out and select another class. She said this course is very very difficult. She normally makes A's but this time she barely passed with a C. I was so nervous and I still am but the instructor seems very enthusiastic about the subject so it should be okay. In A&P1 I can't lie, our class was spoiled. I never bought the book and passed with a B and that was with minor effort. We copied the notes the instructor wrote, studied them and took the tests, that's it! Our class was 5 hours long including a lab, it started at 5:30 and ended at 10:30 pm. We barely stayed past 8:30 ever!
    Now this instructor is no nonsense. He doesn't write anything down which means you have to know the book like the back of your hand. He gives us 3 midterm tests and one cumulative final. No word banks like we had in A&P1, and we have to complete our lab manual unlike A&P1 where we only had to complete a few pages of each chapter just to show that we did something in lab. I was mad as hell at first but I know that I am going to learn alot in this class so I'm okay now. We are starting on the male reproduction section. Going from accounting to nursing is a big step for me especially when it comes to looking at these graphic pic!!!! Pray for me and I will definitely pray for you all as well!

    Good luck to you, dorselm. Nursing is tough, and so are these classes. I hope your instructor gets better as this class goes on!
