    hi guys! my name's Jen...i just was searching around and found this forum!

    I'm in A&P 1 this semester and its kicking my butt. Its not that I dont understand and love the material, but my teacher is absolutely ridiculous. off of 150 pages of material from all the sections on basic nerves, CNS, PNS, and ANS, he would just pick one SPECIFIC thing like...the length of post and preganglionic nerves...as the subject of like, 15 different questions. I just felt it was so unfair...instead of testing our basic knowlege of all the major concepts, he just picked out like, 5 random ones...which didn't even match his study guide, nor did they even go along with what was stressed in class. How was i supposed to know to focus on something like thaT? geez.

    oh well. hope everyone else is doing well!

    OK guys, I'm just now coming up for air! It has been a long time since I posted. My prof. moves at a train wrecks pace. We finished muscles what seems like months ago. We are now in the special senses. For the moment I have an A! Yet, I still have 2 tests to go. On the bright side we do not have a cumilative final.
    I have never worked so hard in a class in my life. I already have a BA in education. A+P is the hardest class I have ever taken.

    Let's hold it together for a few more weeks! Good luck!


    This semester has gone by so fast for me! I have 3 more classes but lots of work due. I am going in tomorrow and will finish up labeling my cat and do my muscle practical. We don't have class until friday but we can do work on our own and ahead of time. I have taken my final exam already but after this week will only have one more unit to study for. I will be happy to have a break for sure!

    5 more days of Class, and I still have an A 94, but I am really worried about my big lab final its over: Muscles, The Brain, CNS, PNS, Special Senses, and everything from before the midterm so Cells, TISSUES, integumentary system, and bones! I am not worried about anything but Tissues and Muscles, but I have a 98 in there so I have a little wiggle room.

    I am doing really well in my AP 1 class too I have 3 more things due and 4 more official class days, I'll get most of it out of the way this weekend with one more exam the following weekend. We are allowed to take things ahead of time and I got most of my work done except the dang Cat muscles its been my nemisis the past few months.

    I look forward to my 6 week break, I start up again 1/23 with AP 2 and Micro. I just signed up yesterday it will be my last pre nursing classes.

    smattles- Yay! I thought this test was the easiest of the semester... but I've still got the practical to go on Monday.

    I am definitely looking forward to the Christmas break before I start A&P 2. Whew!

    I have my lab practical saturday on the cat muscles so not looking forward to that, I have the cadaver tomorrow and essay and then next week my last unit exam repo and human growth. I am looking forward to my 6 weeks of no school work!!!! I plan to really recharge!

    live4rachael...holy cow, that test I thought was the hardest! I couldn't even remember what the difference was between grey and white matter. Goodness. And I messed up on the dorsal and ventral roots and which was sensory and which was motor. Blah. I know I didn't get an A

    The practical wasn't bad actually. He just used a few models I didn't recognize and once I got home I was kicking myself at some dumb mistakes. But good luck! You'll do great!

    And good luck in A&P2. Are you taking Micro too? Did you find out who your teacher is yet?

    Yay!!! I am all done ap1 I can't believe it I finished a week early. I was suposed to do my cat discection today but convinced my lab partners to get it over with yesterday so we did we got full points 120/120! I finish AP 1 with a whopping 104% I can't belive I won't have to study for that this week.

    I still have my chemistry final a week from tuesday but now I have lots of time to prepare for that!

    My final is on Monday. It's supposed to be mostly on reproductive system and development, with "a few" questions from other chapters. I have a 96, so I'm only studying the new material. Then I have my other class's final Tuesday, and then a whole month off! Probably the last break that long I'll ever get, if I get into the accelerated program that starts in May. Good luck to everyone else!

    smattles- Nah, I'm holding off to do Micro til the summer, I'm just taking A&P 2 in the spring. My job's about to change and be even more time-consuming, and I don't want to commit to 2 classes next semester. That's the last class I'll need to apply for the program, but I can't attend until Fall 2008 anyway, so I'm not in a hurry. I don't have Mr. Jackson again for A&P 2 though...

    You had both the practical AND the test to study for... there's no way I would've been ready for both so for that I applaud all of you that did! I'm still not ready for the muscles AT ALL for Monday's practical... but I'm good on everything else. We'll see.

    Are you all ready to start the program in January?? Yay, I'm so excited for you!

    live4rachael-The muscles weren't that bad, actually. Pretty obvious ones, so you should do ok. Only one or two that I couldn't figure out only because he used a weird model that I forgot to study. Blah. The multiple choice was kinda confusing though, but then again I thought the test was confusing, so that might have been the problem!

    I think i'm ready for MUSC...yikes. I got my uniform and bought some white shoes. And all my nursing books are coming in from amazon.com, so that's making it more real. Yikes. I just hope everything goes ok with my kids...I'm having a friend watch them until I can get them into the daycare on base and I just worry. Oh well...

    Good luck in A&P2! It'll be nice having a break after this week!

    Just finished my final - I got 47/54 on the lecture, 100 on the lab. B for the lecture final, but good enough to maintain an A in the course. Yay! And the best part, is no more studying for over a month! (except my Devel Psych final tomorrow) Good luck to everyone else!
