    96 muscles i/o and names for the practical

    Then we have 56 muscles we need to know on or Cadaver

    56 muscles we discet out our selves on the Cat

    ARGH!

    I will take your advice, I took my time the last few days to really study, we have to learn all the origin, inserions, and actions because we don't know which one's we will be questioned on. Thanks and wish me luck.

    This is my first semester of A&P and I am losing my mind. This is my instuctors first class. She is from Nariobi and we can barely understand her. She is always late. Also she is completely unorganized and indecisive. She lets people retake tests and gives the answers while they are taking it.EX. We just had our mid-term which I studied for 17 hours on over the weeked. I did very well getting an 86% The second highest grade in the class. She let everyone who didn't pass retake the exam with only 20 questions and then proceeded to give them the answers. I now have the lowest grade on the exam. I can't take this but I only have 7 weeks left. Everything I have learned I have had to learn on my own. Any study tips on how to get through the rest of the semester. We are starting the musculature system I think but then again we never know.

    I am really sorry your semester is not going as planned, I have had semesters and teachers like that myself its so frustrating. I don't really have any advice except to prepare and study as much as you can, I use the internet alot my text book and my text books website, I take quizes and tests online and try to realy make sure I understand the physiology part of whats happening. I hope you can take someone different for 102 and will enjoy it more.

    I will add though the teachers I have had like that are the classes I have learned the most in, because the info is not spoon fed you tend to retain it and learn it better when you research and do it on your own.

    not helpful I know for the GPA but will take you further as you go on having a solid understanding.

    Wow, I would be running to the the Academic Dean's office. That is not fair. I would let an administrator know ASAP. Usually, when a professor lets people retake a test...you can only make up a certain amount of points. The way your teacher is doing it, they should let everyone re-take the test. Watch out for yourself and others after you...

    I would go to your Academic Dean's office (immediately)as well, because her behavior is inappropriate! At the least, you might be able to transfer into a different class which poses a different set of problems. Good luck to you!

    Im not doing so well in my A&P class.. So much information and my professor doesn't ease up on us at all.. How can I make this course a fun one.. I've tired, I actually thought I was going to love this because I always wanted to know every bone in the body but this is so dead. It is not Midterm and I have got a D.. I hate it.. We are now studying the Muscular system. The professor doesnt talk about it, he just passes the study guide out and say here and we are having a test on it next week wednesday.. I'm like .. I'm so tired, juggling this class + 3 more+ work+ and a baby.. this is really time consuming. Advice anyone?

    I am sorry you are finding it such a struggle. Is it past the drop date? if not maybe you need to take it again but reprioritize your schedule, find a new teacher etc....if its too late for that, can you find some friends in the class to study with, there are usually people who are very happy to have an extra person to compare notes etc... I have a group of 4 or so people but we welcome anyone and usually announce to everyone where and what time we will be. It really helps to compare notes and thoughts on the subjects.

    hang in there Anatomy is a fun course and you do have to have the right attitude as it is a ton of work!

    goodluck.

    Okay Guys! Just a few more weeks left. I have until the 16th to drop A&P I. I currently have an over all GPA of 3.75 and must get at least a B in A&P. Right now I have a 76%. I have a Practical in Lab on Wed and another exam next Monday. So, that gives me two opportunities to bring my grades up! I can't decide if I should just fight through it even if I get a C and then take it again next semester, or withdrawl and then take it. I don't know which is worse!! Any ideas?? What will a C do to my GPA?
