    I am really glad you like your A&P professor. A good prof. makes all the difference in being able to learn the material. I ended up dropping that medical math class and decided to take it this Fall instead. Everyone in there had applied for the nursing program for the Fall and Maddie said that because this is the only Math course for Nursing she recommended taking it closer to your first clinicals. Also the time was conflicting with my kids schedule so I just thought it best to drop the class till the later.

    That is great that UDM responded so soon. Only three classes to take and then your in the program, I say go for it. If you can get your BSN from the get go then do it. I wish I could. Although, I talked to the financial aid lady and she said that I will get some pell grant for the fall and then upon getting accepted to the nursing program I can apply for the michigan nursing grant.

    Foxfire, dont worry about the NET. You will pass it. I told you before that you could pass it and you will. Its not that difficult and you are a very intelligent person. You have nothing to worry about. The math portion was the easiest for me, but you know how much I like math anyway. Reading, for me, was a little more challenging, not because the material itself was hard it was just the surroundings I was dealing with (talking to proctor on my left, tapping pencil on my left) I found it extremely hard to concentrate and found myself wasting precious time rereading the questions and material. My advice for the reading portion, is to just pace yourself, try with all your might to stay focused and relax! relax! relax!.

    I am going to email you, because I have some questions for you about the pell. Talk to you soon.

    Hi everyone!

    It looks like some of you have already started class. Mine doesn't start until Wednesday but since I found this thread I'm going to go ahead and join in. I'm having the same teacher as I did for A&P I. I did really well in his class (got an A) so I hope to do just the same in A&P II. He's a good teacher and I learned alot from him.

    Good luck to everybody!

    Well our first exam is going to be next week. The teacher said maybe on Tuesday, but more than likely on Thursday. He lets us go home after taking the test. He said he knows the students are tired after testing and no use in lecturing afterwards. So I am prepared with the info he has given us so far. Today wasn't so bad, we had two breaks and left at 12:45 instead of 2. We are already a week ahead of the syllabus with the lecturing. He said we might finish early, and for sure our last day is August 11th. Well hope everyone else is doing good in their classes. Seems everyone must be real busy studying, not too many replies lately on here. I also have an online English class which is awesome. I love it. It is our second required english class and based on short stories and essay writing. We must also participate in the online discussion board with other students after we read a story. It is very awesome.

    So how many of you have had your first test? Easier or harder than A&P2?

    I don't know if it was easier or harder for me, but definitely got my good grade of 37 out of 40. My instructor keeps on telling us the hard stuff is coming up, but don't know what can be that much more painful than the nervous system. Ugh.

    Today was my first day of class. We got our syllabus and we have a test every Wednesday for 6 weeks in a row beginning June 15, and a final a week and a half after the last test - Plus some lab tests thrown in! Guess I'm going to be pretty busy for a while.

    We had our first class last night. I have the same teacher as last semester for A&P I so I already knew what to expect. I think we're going to have 5 tests including the final. Later we're going to dissect a rat. That oughta be interesting.

    Sounds like more classes are kicking in...I finished up week 4 last night and so far I am enjoying it. We started with Blood, then went to Cardiovascular and Hemodynamics. Last night we started on the Lymphatic System. I am enjoying the "concepts" of A & P II over the "memorization" of A & P I.

    We have taken 2 tests and 3 quizzes...I think I am averaging a high B right now. I have heard that the Endocrine System is challenging...we won't start that for a few more weeks.

    Congrats on the good score for test one...hang in there...

    Totally agree with you about "concepts" instead of "memorization." Well I might not be doing much memorization becuase they messed up the schedule and I can't take Lab until the second summer session.

    But I'm loving the cardiovascular system. Maybe because our instructor is giving us lots of related clinical info, since he used to do EKGs, stress tests and other tests.
