    I'm starting A&P I in two weeks. We are using Martini's 7th edition. I purchased the flashcards, and a coloring book. Now I'm wondering if the study guide ($44) would be helpful. I just don't want to spend and waste if it's not useful. Has anyone here used the study guide for Martini's, and if so was it helpful?
    I would not bother purchase the study guide. To me, it is a waste of money. You have enough information in the book. I used to make my own flashcards. I recorded the class, typed my notes and study. Good luck to you. I did not even buy the book, someone lended a older edition. I used internet sources in certain areas.

    I did tape lectures too. This was probably my biggest help.

    I agree that the study guide is a waste of money. The interactive quizzes and tutorials online in conjunction with the text were more than sufficient.

    Well, our final grades were just posted. 97 on the lecture final and 89 on the lab final. Gives me a 94 average for the semester. A&P II starts on Monday. Very psyched.

    I should have mentioned that I'm taking the course via Internet. No instructor besides an email link and no lectures. Does that change what you all think?

    p.s. you all have done so well with A&P, congrats!

    I dont know how to advise on internet classes. I have never taken one, and I am not sure I want to do that. I really feel so much better about a classroom setting. Also, I like being around people. Good luck with it though. It might be the perfect situation for you.

    I must admit, internet classes somewhat intimidate me. I might be more likely to buy a study guide. That is if I got brave enough. I have thought about it, but I chicken out every time.
    My A&P 1 instructor talked to me about A&P 2 online this summer, and in some ways, I think I might, but I will probably do the same as I always have and take the semester off if the Psychology instructor wont be able to teach the night class. She has had some health problems, but she would like to teach it at night. I guess we will see.

    Hi there,

    I have taken online classes at my previous University, and I loved it alot. They're the same amount of time that you would normally spend in a semester. Depending in the class you have to summit lessons every week.
    you'll have to be a very organized person, and you have to set a few hours a week to submit work via asyncronous. Also, though I loved the online experience, I would never take a Mathematics course of any sort online, nor would I take any Biological sciences. They are rigorous courses, and would prefer to take them in the classroom.

    Ex of classes I take online:

    Sociology
    psychology
    anthropology

    or any other classes where lots of reading need to be done.

    Any way I just had to post this thread for you to realize that a course like A&P is very rigorous.
    Thanks!

    I've had good luck with taking computer classes, English, and World Religion online. I don't think I would take A&P online since I'm not a person that loves biology type courses.
