    hi, i just wanted to ask where to get this springhouse notes a+ review and where'd you get the cochise college a&p podcast? thank you!

    I honestly don't remember where I got the book but Amazon has it: http://tinyurl.com/2odjb6 The diskette may not do you much good if you're like me and don't even have a floppy drive anymore, but the book is great.

    The lecture is via itunes. Just look under itunesU and search for A&P. It's Kerry Henrickson. She's great. AND, if you go to Cochise, you can see some of the lecures transcribed. Not all of them, for some reason, but a few. I don't know if she's using the same book but she is hitting the same points my teacher is putting in the outline. Right now she's doing a very long and involved ABO lecture using trees with ornaments vs plain trees as examples. Pretty funny.

    Nice! I just got into itunes (yeah a little behind the times) and was looking for some podcasts. Lectures on A&P sounds great! Thanks!

    It really is sweet. My faves so far are the Cochise and St. Scholastica.

    Ok, just got our grades back from our lecture exam... I got a B... meh Took the lab exam last night, felt pretty good about it, I guess, but I always feel better than I end up doing on the exams, it seems. So I will be cautiously optimistic there.... Now the scary part is, there's ANOTHER lecture exam on Tuesday the 12th.... covering 3 chapters, and she will be JUST finishing the lectures for it on Thursday. There will be a quiz Thursday night, another online quiz over the weekend. The chapter review exercises for all 3 chapters are due on exam day (and those take HOURS to do). And of course, I'm nowhere near done with the reading!

    I am not sure how I'm going to pull this one off, to be honest. I'm only on here to vent this out, so I don't start hyperventilating while I'm reading and pass out. I guess I'll be living, eating breathing and sleeping a&p (well, I already do as it is, which is why I'm a litte worried about this one....)

    Any advice? tips? commiseration?

    I am 4 weeks into my AP II class. We had our first exam on endocrine system. I got an A. Our next one will be on blood and my first practical is on arteries. Our professor is good and we "only" have to study our lecture notes (about 20 pages).

    I totally commiserate. And I offer bagels.

    I think all you can do is take it bit by bit, try to break it down into small parts so you don't feel overwhelmed by the quanity of work. You can totally do this. You have a week to work on it, don't forget. It's not like you have anything else to study.

    I too am in A & P II. I'm not sure about what a sticky note is. But thought I would post. Thanks for the notes. They will be quite helpful. I take my A & P online. I have a great study group so we do pretty well. We had our first test the other day. Didn't do so well because it was CV, Endocrine, Sp Senses and brain and spinal cord anatomy. Thanks for all of the good advice on here.

    i'm loving this class. so far it has been my favorite of all the classes i've taken as prereqs. i'm loving it so much that i'm three chapters ahead in my reading. i got a 90 out of 90 in my last exam (essay exam no less). i just hope that i can keep this up!

    to sticky a thread is a type of forum jargon that means to have it stay at the top of all other threads, it wouldn't be anything you would do unless you are a forum monitor. welcome aboard and good luck!

    sorry, this made me laugh. i feel for you; sometimes i think the students are smarter than our lab instructor. we just dissected a fetal pig too! my lab partner and i named her candie (since we were the first to find ovaries and everyone came over to have a look at her insides). pretty neat stuff so far.

    My school splits it up into Anatomy and Physiology. I'm is Phys now. I am sorry to say this but I am bored out of my mind. So far, I feel like I an learning the EXACT same things I already learned in Anatomy. HHHMMM! Or maybe my Anatomy prof was just a good, thorough professor.

    You are very welcome. I am glad the notes are helping. Anything that makes things easier, right? LOL

    I do have Micro notes I will post them to you all this next week, I still need to scan a few of the diagrams that go with the notes.

    I will let you know here, when I post the Micro notes on the Micro sticky.

    GOOD LUCK to you all.

    Oh, I started my nursing classes and once I get some notes gathered I will post those as well..
