    Hey everyone
    I am really kind of worrying about my lab tomorrow. We will be dissecting our cats for the first time tomorrow. I am interested in this, just to see everything I am learning in an actual context. I have never dissected anything before. I am worried that I won't be able to stand it because I am a HUGE animal lover. I worked in a hospital for a while so I have seen many gross things and I was fine. I am just worried about my first dissection experience. Any advice? Thanks!

    I just spend two entire days making my own flashcards for the bones. I don't feel like this amount of information is retainable. I am extremely overwhelmed. Does anyone have any advise? We have to know epithelial tissues, connective tissues, anatomical teminology, the skull, bony thorax, and upper and lower extremity (pretty much every bone in body) Just the skull alone is freaking me out! Any advise...please?

    Oh and out of all this information the lab test is only 40 questions. Could be anything though. There are only 2 lab test for the entire semester. I wish they would break it up more. AHHHH

    My instructor, who is great by the way, didn't even advise us to make flashcards for bones, just get lots of lab time in for the actual bones. For muscles and histology he advised flashcards would help greatly.

    Does anyone know of a way to learn the cat muscles. I've seen Mnemonics for other things but not for the cat muscles. I just can't seem to remember, I think my brain has gone into shutdown.

    our biology study center had videos and a computer program available to help learn about cellular respiration. what resources do you have available at your school? good luck, you'll get it!

    To be honest, I am not sure what he has, lol. I know he puts models in the library for our labs. I guess I should ask him.

    just found out i got a 78 on the 2nd lab exam, with a 90 on the first. Gives me a 84 in the class. That hurts, i need to step it up.

    congrats on a great start! i used this website to pratice the cells http://www.kumc.edu/instruction/medi...tomy/histoweb/ and http://www.msjensen.gen.umn.edu/webanatomy/ as well as the hole's book website (my class is using hole's book too) http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/site...student_view0/

    also use flashcards and study them every night. this stuff isn't hard, just alot of memorizing.

    well the results are in....we had our first lab test last thursday and got our grades back today....98!!!! I'm so happy...there were several A's but it amazed me how many people bombed it with like 20's and 30's....makes you wonder if they even crack the book.
