    I took A&P I last fall and i saw how intense the reading was. I just couldn't keep up with the reading. A chapter in the testbook is like 200 pages and it was just impossible to read everything and still pass all the other classes i was taking. Anyways, since u took A&pII already and came out with a good grade, i was wondering how u did it, how u kept up with the reading.

    Hi to all,

    I am posting these in response to many from AP I and II who have asked for my notes from those classes. I am posting the AP II notes here and the AP I notes are on the AP I sticky. I hope that they assist you in your studies. GOOD LUCK.

    This is my first time posting! I started A&P II on January 7th, I have the same professor that I had for A&P I. I'm hoping that will help me since I know the way he teaches.
    Good Luck, Everyone!!
    By the way, I LOVE this site!!!

    Have a great night,

    I had my first class last night and am a little nervous. We started out with a review "Of things you should already know". Most of the questions asked after he or someone gave the answer I would say "Oh yeah, I knew that!".

    This is going to be a tough semester. All exams are essays! Wow! Fun times though, I already told the gf it was nice knowning her haha.

    anyone know of any websites that have good photos of blood cells seen under a light microscope?

    The textbook has some pictures, but the prepared slides we looked at in lab weren't the best quality for discerning the different types of leukocytes....

    Any links or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Try http://images.google.com/ or even google. Also http://www.wikipedia.org is a good site to find images too. Hope that helps and good luck with your search.

    My AP I and II classes were, as are all our pre req classes, 4 weeks in length. We went 5 days a week for 4-6 hours a day. We covered between 1-2 chapters a day, had an exam every Monday with the final being on the last Friday of class. The way I kept up was to take notes the night before class. I would read the chapter and take "rough" notes of bold face words, words I didn't know, and processes. That way when I went to class when the professor spoke even if I didn't know specifically all the details he was speaking of, I at least had heard the words and had an idea of what was being said. I took vigorous notes, as you will see of the ones I have placed here, and re-wrote the class notes with the nights previous notes. It was a lot of work but it paid off. We formed a study group as well and some nights when the chapters were REALLY LONG we would divide the chapter among us, take notes, copy them and pass them among one another. It made the chapters easier to digest along with getting another persons viewpoint, there were 4-5 in any of the study groups I have been in as of yet.

    GOOD LUCK.

    I also recommend getting a medical dictionary. I went out and got a Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary today, and I'm really wishing I'd gotten it for A&P 1, but I didn't want to spend the money, and I didn't know how helpful it would be. I tend to buy the basics... what I need/is required, and don't really go for optional purchases. But I did end up getting quite a few extras for this class series; flash cards, the coloring book, and now the dictionary.

    Here's hoping I can get that 4.0 this quarter. umpiron:

    Hi- all Thursday was a first class, I was excited to get back into class. This is my last pre-req to get into the Nursing program. We have the same prof. and I really like the way he teachs so I am confident I can pull off a good grade. Just study study study!

    I started A & P II last week. Hope the rumors I've heard aren't true and II won't be harder than I.
