    CT question basically asks you why dudes 1 lung collapsed ( from stab wound)and the other didn't ...uh hello? Yeah., that easy.

    Its funny you picked that question....my professor told us hed give us five extra points on the next test if we could tell him why only one lung would collapse and how to reinflate it!! Ridiculously easy!! I got my extra five points :chuckle

    My genious professor thinks if he pushed our next test back one day (from Tuesday to WEdnesday) that we'd all get A's. Maybe I should have told him that after he said this more than half of the class decided to use one more day to procrastinate studying and enjoy thier weekend. I wish it was still on Tuesday, Im ready for it. (I think) I cant wait to take the test and to hear how everyone does.

    I'm a little angry because I understand stuff like Anatomy and Med Term and didn't even have to study much to get an A but because I got a C in Algebra I didn't get accepted into the LPN program at my school

    So sorry, Joebird21. Is there anyway you can retake the algebra class? Maybe another instructor, or tutors can help bring your grade up.

    Good luck!

    Sorry to hear that. Id be mad too! Try to retake the class to get a higher grade like the previous poster suggested. Or I guess you could try another school. Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    So how is everyone doing? What are you working on?

    We are still on urinary trending towards fluids/electrolytes. IMHO this has been the hardest chapter to get a hold on. Especially the steps through the nephron...but I have everything mapped out so it's helping. I'm finding fluids to be big review at the moment of a lot of endocrine but we aren't done with it yet. This test is next Thurs along with 2nd ( and last)lab practical.

    I also found out our lecture prof. drops the lowest test grade...I never knew that so that makes me feel pretty OK knowing I have 3 A's so far so even if I do mess up the urinary/fluids test a little I will still have an A....but I will work for that A on the test anyway.

    We have our first test that we have to take by Saturday. It's over Digestive, Cardiovascular, and Lymphatic. (190 questions)

    Respiratory & Urinary is test 2 (120 questions)

    Endocrine, Reproduction, and Embryioloical Development is test 3. (189 questions/75% of exam 3 grade)

    Luckily, we don't have a final, but we do have a comprehensive lab practical. (Of course, this class is only 5 weeks, but we only have 1 lab practical..100 questions/25% of exam 3 grade.)


    I'm not sure of the purpose of the odd number of questions...

    Thanks LKG6

    r_janice: I'm glad you are covering the urinary....lots of things can go wrong there!
    I'm so excited for you! Good luck in NS.....hopefully most of us will follow come January, etc.

    As for the questions...sounds stupid lol I guess they have their purpose for it.

    D-O-N-E!

    Hehe! That final that I took on Saturday and was fretting about whether I did or did I not get the 79 I needed to get an A in the class....I got a 94 on it! You could knock me over with a feather! My daughter thinks I'm funny and worry too much. She may be right.

    Best of luck to all you guys still in the throws of A&P. (Now my next challenge will be micro. )
