A&P I Spring 2007 Semster - Welcome! - page 17

I will be taking A&P I next semester when I come back from Christmas break for the Spring 2007 semester. I didn't know if someone was going to start a group or not, so I thought I would create a... Read More

    I went out and bought Barron's Anatomy Flash Cards at Barnes and Noble. They were only $24 and are in full color. Each card has a picture and numbers pointing to certain body parts. They box contains every body system. I am hoping they will come in handy.

    Yes, A&P is a subject that you must stay on top of. One little slip, and you're way behind. I'm on the quarter system, and last week was the midpoint of the quarter. Today during our lab exam, I was amazed at how many students we have left in our class. I know that A&P 1 will not be offered again until the Fall. I feel kinda sorry for the students who felt they had to drop it.
    This is what scares me. I have to stay ahead or I could easily fall behind.

    I thought Chemistry would be harder than any other class. Boy was I wrong. :chuckle

    I'm having a little bit of trouble understanding DNA and it's structure! Honestly, it seems so overwhelming to me!

    I'm curious if anyone has any good weblinks to help me understand it a little better? (Or maybe if you could talk with me VIA PM to understand it!!)

    I read this part of the chapter 3 times and I'm still not understanding it all!! I mean, I get the Chromatin (I think!) but when I get into the "molecular level" of DNA (Nucleotides and Nitrogenous) I'm just beside myself!!

    I would really appreciate any help!

    we have just started studying the passive and active processes (diffusion, osmosis, and the cytosis')....can anyone give me a link to something that details it further for me? I've looked in the sticky and didn't find anything I can use. Thanks in advance!

    You can find a lot of good animations that would help you to visualize the info if you Google 'cellular transport animations' or something similar...

    Here's one that may help...

    This thursday we get to take our first trip to see the cadavers. Hopefully I won't pass out. I heard the room stinks.

    You're soooo lucky !!! I don't think we'll get any cadavers, because the cadaver we were supposed to get is...uhm...not a cadaver yet...he he the guy is still alive. Good for him I guess....

    Anyways, I got a 96 on my first exam - most of the class got D's !!!!!!!!!

    And a 100 on my lab practical :hatparty: :hatparty: :hatparty:

    Yay for me

    Hey everyone,
    I just wanted to let you know that I got 107% on my lecture exam, the one I was worrying so much about. Im not sure what happened, perhaps I just overanalyzed a lot of questions.

    Im gonna head back to the muscles.

    By the way, for anyone who wants muscle flash cards to print out and some other things for the muscle unit, I have made a website for my study group with all of the documents I've been making. Check it out at www.geocities.com/maggiofliore

    And congratulations to everyone. I am glad we are all doing so good, rather than hearing people bombing the test.

    Hi! Im currently in A&P I, and so far am not doing as well as I would have hoped. Surprisingly, I am doing very well in Chemistry, which is where I thought I would have had problems. Right now we are in tissues, and I'm having some trouble ID'ing the different tissues. With over a hundres slides that the professor could put on our practical, does anyone have any tips on how to get these down?

    go to my website at www.geocities.com/maggiofliore
    click on tissue flash cards under unit one
    I have alot of them already made

    Histology freaked me out bad when we first started but I just made flash cards of various different types of the same tissue and it worked out. I dont think I have the key on there but if you are gonna use them I can identify them and PM you, just let me know.

    I was very intimidated by histology but once I started memorizing the information regarding to lecture, I was able to connect the dots with lab. Youll get it, trust me

    Hello everyone!

    Chiming in to say I got a 96 on my lab exam today. Hooraaaaaayy!!! I had a bad week last week. I got my first C in the class, but this A totally makes up for it. Today's exam was by far the hardest one yet...the muscles of the hands, feet, forearm, legs, arms, and hips. Whew, I'm so proud!
