? for those finishing A&P 2

  1. OK, for all af you in A&P2, now that you are nearing the end of the semester, what did you find most difficult? I've heard from some the Cardio system or the reproductive system.

    Thanks so much!!!

    I posted in the APII club but I'll repeat!

    For me it was respiratory and cardiac. Neither were that bad in general but trying to keep all the different pressures and volumes straight was a little much for me.

    For lab the most difficult was to identify the bloodvessels on the fetal pig.

    Water/Electrolyte Balance here. It got pretty deep into the Chemistry, and well, I didnt take Chemistry. Big mistake.

    Respiratory. Hands down. I loved the chapters on reproduction and human development.
    Good luck!

    Respiratory.. I am still sketchy on that one...
    will need to review before nursing school...

    man.. home stretch.. trying to keep motivated.. doing reproduction/pregnancy right now...hard to stay motivated during this season...thank goodness I have 3 children; it is making these last chapters interesting and dare I say fun?

    Cardio here...thought I knew what I was doing and totally TANKED on the tests!

    I've enjoyed the class overall but I'm glad it is just about over, this Friday is the last day for me.

    Good luck to you next semester.

    Endocrine is difficult, too....we have our last lecture test about it this Friday together with Urinary and Reproductive. I am just glad that my life doesn't depend on this test since I can drop that one if it's less than perfect. It will be a monster and I feel sorry for the people who depend on this particular grade.

    The digestive sys by far. all the enzymes and hormones were very confusing.

    I learned more about that from Nutrition than A&P. Nutrition instructor made it much easier to understand and I feel like he even went deeper into it all.
    I am very discouraged with this semester A&P.

    Thanks for all of your responses!!!! I guess the difficulty level per subject is just individual. I have gone through the Endocrine and Blood so far and I seem to be ok with them, right now I am working on the cardio which seems more intense with information. I guess just like with anything else study..study and study some more.
