    Hey guys, its been a while since I posted, I have been studying my little hiney off for my first A&P test. I will be taking it Tuesday. He went over it today and it seems like its going to be pretty straight forward.

    Fun2care: The integumentary system is in our next unit test. I will surely be writing down that little jingle LOL. Keep them coming girl, you rock!!!!!

    Hi to all those who are new, sorry I missed your introductions. Good luck to all those who have test coming up. Remember we are all in this together!

    Ok I need to go find where I left off on this thread and play catch up.

    OOOh I am so glad there is an A+P I club! I started classes/lab on Tuesday and so far it's really easy but that's only because we are doing stuff I already knew. We just started tissues Thurs and didn't even get past Simple Epithelium because my class asks a lot of questions ( too many but that's just my .02 LOL!). I have a lab quiz on Tues but it's only on planes, cavities + subcavities + serous membranes.

    I like my professor even though she has a THICK accent - but it's Russian and since I can speak Russian I understand her...although I know a lot of my classmates are struggling to comprehend her at times.

    I've already found that I have no need to drag my books to class. We just use the paper supplements and she gave us every single power point she will be using all semester...so I just jot notes on them.

    Welcome BoonersMom!


    I feel sorry for the other classmates! I had to drop an Algebra class b/c the instructor was from Nigeria. I couldn't understand a single word he said!!! It actually really ticked me off! lol Anyway, that was a long time ago, and I have since taken, and passed College Algebra.....whewwwww


    As for books, I don't think we need to bring our lecture book. For some strange reason, I bring it anyway. I think I may leave it at home. I've talked to my hubby about me asking the instructor if we really needed to bring it. I just never think about it once I get to class.


    Good luck in your class, and let us know if you have any questions. Maybe someone can help.

    I had the most amazing field trip last night! Our A&P instructor also teaches Gross Anatomy to first year med students, so we got to go to the Gross Anatomy lab. Wow. I can't even describe it. It is a whole different ballgame to actually see where everything is and how it all connects. If any of you get an opportunity like this, don't pass it up.

    Hello everyone!
    My name is Amanda and I saw this thread and wanted to join in on all the fun. I am not a prenursing student (hope that's ok) but I'm studying nutrition for the medical field and I am taking A&P I this semester.

    We are on histology right now in our lecture and lab...right now I'm trying to memorize function and location of them. Luckily our lab ta's broke them up so we focused on epithelial and connective tissues last week; this week will be cartilage, bone, and blood. Hoping to do well on the lab quiz this week.

    How are your lab tests? We only have two tests and they are 100% practical tests. I'd rather have a standard test...oh well. We only have three tests in our lecture (2 + comprehensive final).

    Anyway thanks for letting me in on all the fun! All the suggestions and websites have been great so far...keep em coming!

    This belongs in it's own thread but I wanted to post it here since it is the A&P 1 club thread and I hope to get better response here. But I need some tips about how to study the the Epithelial Tissues. We have a test on them Monday night and I'm having trouble remembering the characteristics (I'm familiar with the shapes. e.g. Stratified=layered, Squamous=thin and flattened, ect.) I just need to know where the locations, characteristics are ect. I pretty much have the connective down pat, it's just the epithelial that I'm having trouble with. TIA!

    Well, we need to know simple ones and the stratifited squamous.
    Stratified: since it has more than one layer it makes sense that its function is protection.
    It lines the mouth, tongue, vagina - protects there surfaces.
    Hope this helps

    Have you tried looking around on the web for pics? I do a lot of looking at the slides online, and it really helps me to remember what type belongs to what organ.

    hi all!
    welcome to anyone new--can't seem to keep up & check in everyday. I took my first exam on Thursday--I feel pretty good about it. It was about 70 questions of multiple choice, matching, T&F then 35 questions of labeling, short answer, and essay. It took over an hour! I'll let ya know as soon as I find out how I did.

    BTW- Rebecca- my bro just got offered a big promotion if he'd leave OK and go to the branch office in PHOENIX!! He will be in your neck of the woods tomorrow/& all next week to check it out. He & my SIL are not keen on leaving- her family is here as well, but..that's business I guess. I'd like them to stay of course.

    Well- we've started on the 3rd chapter- cell stuff-review for me. Some of you guys are way ahead. Oh and our grading system is done by the CC- it's a straight 90-100-A, 80-89-B, 70-79-C, 60-69-D & the prof I have doesn't curve- you get what ya earn because you had better know it when ya leave.

    I hope to hop on here tomorrow- I'm goin' to bed now. I'm dizzy with tiredness-
    I really like knowing there are A&P friends out there somewhere-read ya later!!

    Hey there. Yea we skipped all that cell stuff, plus the chem stuff in my course. thank goodness too! :chuckle You know, I am finding the A&P such an interesting class. All the studying does not have trouble finding a spot in my brain. But the other class I'm taking, human nutrition, I'm finding it way more dull. I've always had an interest in nutrition (whole foods, good complex carbs, staying away from bad fats, etc) but this stuff is just boring the heck out of me! Ugh.

    So your brother might be moving to Phoenix, eh? He will be visiting us during the best time too, because we are experiencing great weather. Today is just beautiful!

    Let us know how you did on your test when you get the results. I just took my first exam yesterday and scored a 45/50, 90%!!!!
