A&P II Club, 2007 - page 10

Hello everyone, I thought I'd go ahead and start a thread for A&P II. Does anyone know if there's a process to request a thread being made sticky? Has anyone been getting a jump start on... Read More

    I am attending my 4th college in 10 years, and while they didn't exist at the last 3, apparently profs are allowed to give A+s at my current school. I had a 102 in my developmental psych class last semester, and she put one on my transcript, but it was still only worth 4.0. I had no idea until I checked my final grades that they could give them. It's at the profs' discretion whether to give +/- grades at all, though.
    ROCK ON YOU GUYS!

    Way to go in the developmental psych class! ITA with ya on the one point. Eventhough my school allows them, my ethics professor doesn't give them. His grading system is strange though and I haven't been able to figure it out... he doesn't use a points system at all but goes strictly by letter grades.

    My school does A+'s, although it's up to the individual Proff. Generally, they outline in their sylabus what numerical grade you need for each letter grade (-/+ included). For most of my Proff's, over 98 is an A+ and it does count as more than a 4.0. I have 18 credits currently, for 10 of them I had an A and the other 8 were A+'s (A&P1 and Nutrition). My GPA is 4.13.

    Halfway mark!

    We are at the halfway mark at my school I got my average so far in AP2 is 98 yahoo! Micro is 96 but I'll bring that up hehehee.

    The semester is flying by but still can't wait for it to be over so I can breath a sigh of relief.

    I applied to a nursing program yesterday my first one but its waitlist only so I just applied to get my name in, I don't have any high hopes of hearing back anytime soon. I will apply to my school in September for the spring 08 semester I can't wait!!

    I can't wait for A&P II to be finished too. I'm doing very well in the course, but at this point in the semester, I can feel myself starting to burn out. The period between the last regular exam and the final exam/practical is definitely a challenge to keep on top of!

    Get the Barron's Study Guide "Anatomy and Physiology the Easy Way". It's an excellent supplement as it explains the basics in simple (well, simpler compared to the 25lb textbook!) terms.

    I've been recommending it to anyone I know taking A&P.

    I would love to join the A&P group, i am currently in A&P 1, and everday we have a lab exam or a lecture exam. my instructor told us at the beginning of the semester that if we have children to tell our babies fathers that they have to care for them until this class is over in order to pass the class. although sometimes i thought that maybe he was right, i am still managing to pass this class so far. thank god!

    we are a little over the halfway mark, we have spring break next week so that will help, but ya I am feeling the burn out too I am so ready for this semester to be over, I am so close to my goal I can taste it! The only problem with spring break is you relax a little and you don't want to get back in the groove!

    I had spring break 2 weeks ago, then last week I got accepted to nursing school - YAY!!!! Thing is, now I have an A&P exam on Tues and it's much harder to get motivated to study. I have to maintain a 3.5 or they rescind my acceptance, but I have 130-ish credits so it's really hard to change my GPA much with one semester. It's already Thursday and I still have about 30 pages to read before I even start studying....and I have to work all weekend...must stop procrastinating on allnurses!

    My school is on quarters and not semesters, so A&P2 is over for me and I start A&P3 on Monday. This past term was crazy....so I'm glad it was a term and not a semester.
