    CareQueen, I'm at CCC too! I started the DTR course, but have decided very recently to switch to nursing. I'm only on my second semester, and am switching my major officially to pre-nursing after this semester.

    That's great! Officially, I'm enrolled in the Pre-Nursing Option too, because it was the only way that I could qualify for direct loans from the govt to pay for the courses, since I already have a Bachelors degree. At CCC, I'm taking the 6 pre-reqs, (well 4 now) I need for my ABSN program and then I'm off to Hopkins to start my ABSN in August. Are you taking A&P I this term as well? If so basic or regular? I'm taking the basic one.

    Do you like A&P for dummies as opposed to barron's or do you find they're alike?

    I definitely would like some of you all help I'm in AP and also have a math class I'm scared about taking! Just because I'm not too good in math I would love to do online study groups if possible through skype or something!

    I find that A&P for dummies is more in detail, and Barron's summarizes; and it hellps with having the review questions after reading each chapter which makes it helpful to understand. I find these two books will help me a whole lot!

    I went to Barnes and noble today and they had a huge selection of anatomy books on sale! I am not sure if its just my area though.

    I'm not taking A&P this term, I'm going to take it in the summer. The classes that fit my schedule were full after my financial aid was released for me to use. You'll have to let me know how the class was! And wow, Hopkins - that's great! Im going to apply to Rutgers, I love that they are offering classes on the Blackwood campus.

    Gotcha! Unfortunately, that happened to me last semester as well! In any case, best of luck to you and I'm sure you'll easily get into Rutgers! I hear that their program is great!!!

    There is a fantastic book entitled "Get Ready for A&P" by Lori Garrett that I've been reading for the past few days. It's awesome. It gives the perfect refresher for math skills, basic terminology etc complete with "complete -as-you-read questions and problems. I highly recommend it. It came as a part of the book pkg when I bought books for classes at the bookstore, but I'm sure you can find it ob Amazon.
    I've been reading that as well! My A&P I starts next week and that book was packaged up in the bundle we had to buy. (Sooo expensive, glad we won't need anything new for A&P II at least.)

    The professor emailed us the other day to let us know we should be done with that book, as well as have the first few chapters in our textbooks down. We'll be tested on them, may need to know some of it at our starting point, but he won't cover them in class. Fortunately it mostly seems to be a review (cell structure, DNA, chemistry, etc), though the directional terms, body planes, and so on is all new to me, and a couple of topics are just more detailed than the material I've learned (such as proteins).

    Looking forward to next week! I've heard the prof is a really good teacher... but really tough.
