    I am new here and taking AP II this semester as well as developmental psych and nutrition. I took AP I spring semester and it was kind of a joke. Our class was just straight memorizing and labeling pictures and the labs were pretty much look at a prepared slide, draw pictures of what you see and answer a few questions.

    I wish I had dissections like some of you, at least you learn something that way. It was so frustrating taking AP I that I am doing II online. We still have to go in 4 saturdays for the lab component/exams but atleast it won't be every week like before. I really hope it gets better!

    I'm looking forward to getting to know people! I'm hoping to apply to nursing schools in seattle for fall 07. I have micro left to take.

    I had a really crappy professor for a&p1, we didn't do anything cool in lab and it was just like yours...labeling and memorizing. But now in a&p2 it's a whole different story....I have a much better teacher and our lab yesterday was AWESOME...we took our own blood, prepared slides, read our hemoglobin and figured our hematocrit etc. He is so dedicated to us and assisted us with everything. I can't wait t'ill next lab to view my own blood and find out what kind of WBC are cruising in my body. Even though the material is difficult I am having FUN!!!!! Welcome, Good luck , hang in and remember: DO YOUR BEST:wink2:

    My A&P I class wasn't easy and A&P II is already looking hard! They seem VERY tough! But, in all honesty, I'd rather have them hard because most programs don't contain any other anatomy classes. If I don't learn it now, I won't know it! And that's scary when we get out into the real world...

    I have my first test on Monday. It will be over the endocrine system. It'll be interesting to see how I can do!

    Good luck on your first test. We studied the endocine systen in A&P1. It was pretty challenging. Your instructor must be moving really fast. We havent even finished the first chapter. I think we will all be stressed at the end.

    I did my first dissection last night. We did not do any in A&P I. We dissected a sheep brain. It was facinating. I was not grossed out at all. It was cool to see everything in person. Now I will remember it so much better.

    the endocrine system will be last for us...we started with blood.
    it's a lot of information and i have a headache, my teacher may be funny but he can also jump around quite a bit. i wished he'd stick more to the note outline when he lectures, i am flipping pages too much...one minute he is here....then out of a sudden he changes subjects, his daughter has adhd...well, i think he has it too and he told us he is a "geek" i wished he'd cut the "blank" and "git her done!!!!" :smackingf

    That is ashame. What I learned doing disection I remember so much better than anything I learned from lecture alone. It seems the hands on, ect really does help it to stick. It is helping me now in digestion. I remember the whole digestive tract. I dont know why some schools do the whole 9 yards (disecting a cadaver) some a cat, and some dont do anything at all. You would think it would be good for us all to be on the same level.

    We had lab today again which was AWESOME, he is the BEST lab teacher!!!! He is so organized and tremendously helpful and nobody leaves early unlike in other labs in my previous classes. Discipline in the class is very good and people respect him and each other.
    We did blood typing on our own blood and I am O+, we also viewed our blood smear which we prepared last time and my differential WBC count came out very perfect, I actually had one of those rare basophils floating around :wink2: Next lab we will start the heart and we will disect a sheep heart.
    Lecture is another story with that guy though....I'll keep taping him and it helps tremendously to shuffle through his scattered presentation. I'll be ok

    Now that would be cool. I wish so bad we got to do something like that. We just look at slides and answer questions. B O R I N G. We arent having lab Wednesday, and he said we would use lab time sometimes for class lecture. I can deal with that. I like the class, and that will help us to cover more material. I just dont like lab.
    I did go and talk to my nursing advisor today and she figured my total g.p.a and it is 3.7. She told me it looks like everything is in order, but I know, that doesnt mean I will get in.:uhoh21:
