    THANK YOU! I can't stand it when other people make comments to me like this. It all started when our Peds instructor anounced IN FRONT OF THE CLASS that I had set the curve for the test and that I had only gotten one question wrong. DUH! So many people approached me after class to say something about "studying less" so they could do better. BLAHH! Why don't YOU study harder. I work really hard for my grades and I shouldn't feel guilty about getting A's, even if it means that the curve isn't as nice to other people. AHHH!

    OMG, yet another annoyance. When people studied for the test 10 minutes before it's administered, then 95% of the class failed. Then the instructor offers them the oppurtunity to take the SAME test again if the entire class agrees. Not just the people that fail retake, everyone does. This annoys me in itself but I digress!
    What really burns my behind :flamesonb is when I've disagreed to retaking the test because I'm satisfied with my 85%. Which is not so hot but I'll take it because that's what I earned. Then someone will get pissed off at me because I don't want to retake the test. I'm a firm believer in taking responsibility for what you earned, not on the belief that if I do bad enough the instructor will go over the test with me and let me take the same one again. Pisses me off to no end! YOU SHOULD HAVE STUDIED!!!!

    I have a classmate that asks the question: "Will that be on the test" While he is reviewing the chapter. Last week she asked the instructor if he could provide multiple choice questions for the definitions instead of how he usually designs the test.

    In my A&P2 class several people are whining that they want a "wordbank" for the lab tests.....

    That is the only question that really is a stupid question.

    My A&P instructor gave us everything that would be on the exams and practicals in the form of reviews and dvd lectures. We still had those that complained and asked, “Is this on the test?” Some just don’t get it.

    Some people in my lab wanted the instructor to list the numbers on the test that corresponded to the numbers on the models. For example, if the "lattisimus dorsi" is #15 on the model, they wanted him to put #15 on the test or something like that. So his response..."humans don't have their muscles numbered."

    That was funny.

    My A&P instructor also put pins in the muscles that we would be responsible for. Because our practical is on a cadaver, it will be hard to turn him over, all muscles for our muscle practical will be anterior. People still complained and had stupid questions.

    We have a Cadaver practical like this as well, we only need to know Anterior muscles of Cadaver, however we still have a muscle practical that is written we have to know 100 muscles by definition the insertion origin and what they do. We also have a 60 muscle Cat practical where we had to find and discect out on our own with no help these 60 muscles we have our practical on that in 2 weeks.

    Get this...the newest thing in our school is that if a student gets below a 68 on a test the teacher needs to counsel the student, I guess ir's equivalent to having a conference. Our A&P teacher is NOT too happy about that but had to announce it since we had plenty bad grades on his lecture test on Monday (61 average!!!!).
    Come on these are ADULTS...most don't do well on the tests because they don't STUDY, MISS CLASS, OR LACK TIME/VOLUME MANAGEMENT SKILLS....next thing you know they'll send a progress report to my mother ????:wink2:
    I am tickled right with you!
    Dang that isn't right at all
    My school has conferences with people who score below a 70% on their first test, but not to counsel students to try harder, but to counsel them to take another class
