A&P II Club, 2007 - page 9

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 just wanted to send you big hugs. It sounds like you are having a rough go of it. Your teacher sounds like a real peach. Let us know how things go!!

    Check to see if your library has a McMinn's atlas. It has color photographs of cadavers with incredible, detailed dissection! You'll first see an overview of a section, then superficial dissection, then progresses deeper and deeper depending on the body part.

    I absolutely loved my class and McMinn's helped me greatly to achieve an A.

    Good luck! Many hugs!!

    That sounds like a great idea. The only downfall is that some places put color dye for nerves, and arteries. We don't have that option but I will be sure to try to find this information.

    Thanks BlessedMom! Well, I toughed it out and studied hard and took the two tests yesterday. We had a writing assignment due too, but I didnt complete it and lucked out because she forgot to ask for it!

    She actually had the nerve to call me into the hall before class to get on my case for leaving her class the other night. She even said, "I don't want to have to drop you from my class" - I can't believe she said that! She can't kick me out for missing one class. I told her she had no reason to be mad...I do my assignments and take my tests and am still pulling an A! She said, "oh, you think so?" What the?! I have a 100/88/88 and that averages to a 92. AAAGGHHH! I just have to laugh at this point.

    The two tests weren't too bad...probably got a high B on the lecture and am certain that I got a 100 on the lab (it was a group lab test and we were able to collaborate with others in our group to label the heart model). Not that it helped me any, it just helped the other two girls in my group - since I was the only on who had studied! Oh well, I'll take my 100 and am happy to have helped my friends.

    SPRING BREAK now...and just 3 more tests to go!

    Wow, what a peach of a teacher you have! Yikes. I am so glad that you are doing well. I hope that she starts to ease up a bit sounds like she is wound up a bit too tight that is for sure. Congrats on pulling through that is awesome stuff. Hang in there and keep believing in yourself. Have a GREAT spring break. I am on spring break as well. Is it jus tme or do you feel guilty if you don't study some everyday. I keep telling myself its Spring Break. Sad right? lol.

    Wow, I am not sure I have ever heard of anyone getting an A+ in college (albeit I did in a PE course worth one credit, lol) let alone in Phys. That is quite a feat! Good luck with your other courses!

    Thanks! I know what you mean. When I started college over 10 years ago, the schools I went to did not give A+s. But since returning, both schools I'm currently attending (the cc for physiology and a state university for my other courses) do give them. For both schools I have to score a 98% or above to achieve one. I'm surprised you haven't heard of college students earning A+s before. That's my goal each semester... lol... keeps me very challenged! When last semester was out, lots of people on this board posted their grades and there were a number of A+s! The men and women here are all smart cookies!

    hmmm now that you mention it I have never heard that either, do they give you a different gpa for that? like a 4.5 vs 4.0? I earned an A+ in ap101 I had a 100+ average but I still got a plain ole A 4.0 for the course.

    Way to go on the 100+ average!!!! Nope, an A+ is still a plain ol' 4.0. I'd imagine a hypothetical difference would be when competing with other 4.0 students to get into a nursing program. Both the 4.0 A student and the 4.0 A+ student could be just as qualified in all areas (personal interview, essay, entrance exam scores, etc), but the added + on the transcript could possibly be a determining factor for one over the other. I highly doubt this situation actually happens too often...especially if the average GPA of accepted students for *most* schools is below 4.0... in which case both hypothetical students mentioned above would be offered a spot For me, though, I veiw it as a personal challenge to myself and nothing more.

    I took mine (both I&II) last year. No, I didn't read ahead, because I was too lazy, lol. But once the class started, I wasnt allow myself to do so otherwise I would fail miserably. Those courses required lots of study, reading, and memorization.

    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.
