A&P II Club, 2007 - page 17

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 start on 9/17 with A&P II. I can't wait. Hopefully it won't be as tough as I.

    I did get my first chapter read already though, now I just have to make a bunch of flashcards.

    Hi All,

    I'm a noob here, and hoping to joing this club. I started 2 weeks ago for A&PII and OMG!!! We just did the Endocrine (tested next Monday) and started Blood yesterday. The Endocrine is way hard!! A&P I was so much easier I thought. Which is pretty funny, because at the time I couldnt believe all those bones/muscles/CNS/PNS etc. thought there was alot to memorize then.

    Blood seems to be easier then Endocrine though. I am going to have a tough sememster--I am taking Microbiology and Psych at the same time.

    LOL I agree about the bones and muscles. I was walking down the hall Mon. at school and there was all those AP I students out there cramming last minute on the cell for a test and they were panicking

    I remember that, now I look back on it and that was nada compared to this crap. I am so glad this chapter is easier now. I am supposed to be studying for tonights lab quiz on blood.

    Well, I had my first test in APII today on chpts 19, 20 and 21. I didn't think the material was too hard to learn and understand although my test grade showed the complete opposite! I made a D on my first test! I need to start reading a couple of pages of text each night and really try to absorb this stuff! The tests aren't just from read text material. We've got to understand the whole concept and the mechanism involved in order to get the correct answers. It's tough!

    My professor is going so fast through through the cardiovascular system and I don't understand why. It's 3 very long chapters (blood, heart, blood vessels) and she's just flying through it in less than 2 weeks. The day she covered the heart in class we immediately went to lab and did our sheep heart dissection, and everyone was so confused because we just started the chapter weren't that familiar with the heart anatomy yet. I'm used to going fast but I think this system is very important for us soon to be nurses, and feel like I'm not getting what I should out of it. I'm doing well and have gotten all A's so far but I'm more concerned with what I'm comprehending than a grade. We still have 17 classes left and only 6 more chapters to cover, this doesn't make sense to me. Sorry I'm just frustrated. On top of that I have to write a 7 page research paper on the etiology of health issues associated with rape for this class that's due next week also. Thanks for listening.
