    Quote from JaxiaKiley
    For bones in A&P I, I printed out a picture of each bone (some multiple times because I needed different angles) and folded the paper in half length-wise. Then I drew lines to the parts we had to know and wrote the answers on the back. It worked for me

    Flashcards really are a lifesaver so far.

    Thanks, and I'm sure you'll do fine
    The key to remembering all the names for different things is to write them over and over and over...I also had several pages with pictures and blank lines next to waht we needed to know. This method really helped with the skull.....oh what a headache it was
    Right now for the heart I write down the bloodflow daily. It enters here, goes through here and so on and so forth...he will ask questions about the valves...like the blood just entered here...which valve did it pass thru and stuff of that nature.

    I had my heart lab last night---we had pictures of a sheep heart in our books but were given pig hearts to dissect...and our lab instructor talks about his mother in a thick accent and doesn't focus too much on helping us...

    This semester I have a lot of personal stuff going on and have been sick for what's going on 2 weeks now so I'm regretting taking A&P II online--I'm just having great difficulty with self directed studying...

    Wish me luck--I have to take my first test tomorrow night (it's multiple choice/true false taken in the library) on the endocrine system, blood, heart and circulatory system...and I can't even keep all the hormones straight

    Good luck to all the other test takers!!!!!!

    I wish you lots of luck. I think online courses would be very difficult. I am afraid I would have a hard time not thinking of things I needed to do at home, but also, I just know the classroom setting is the only way for me.
    I hope you get to feeling better soon. Hang in there.

    i am so glad for you that he figured out what he did. that would be most dreadful. especially if you studied and knew the answers.

    Hello everyone! I too am taking A&P II this semester. A&P I was a challenge especially since the professor never taught A&P before and was learning everything along with us. I am hoping that this semester gives me a better experience and I earn a better grade Good Luck to everyone!! Is there going to be discussion regarding different topics in A&P II....kind of like a study group type thing? Peace!

    im takin a&p ii this semester... i love it!!! we just finished the endocrine system.. i liked knowing what all the hormones do and diseases. my teacher is funny but loud.. lol how is everyone liking it so far? a&p i really comes into play in a&p ii..
    any tips on how to remember the hormones and targets and functions? i am having a hard time remembering what releases what and what inhibits what and where....any tips?

    A study group type of thing would be nice, but since we are in different programs, we are all going at different speeds. For example, I've already taken my lecture test over the endocrine system. We just finished covering blood, and started talking about the heart. Our next test will be in early Oct and cover blood, heart and blood vessels.

    Best of luck to you!

    As far as study groups go, we finally got a really good one. I know 3 of us are really serious about it.

    I will go to open lab tomorrow morning since our teacher will be available for help in the study center. I will meet one of my class mates....a doctor from Iran, he has a very strong accent, I am also from a foreign country, so we get along pretty well. He is also older like me

    i'm taking A&P II and like it too...1 wasn't a big deal so i dont expect 2 to be either...good luck to all

    Well, I wish it wasn't such a big deal for me I think it is awesome when people can breeze through something that is hard for most people. It makes me a bit jealous, but it is cool
