A&P 1: The Spring '05 Anatomy & Physiology Club - page 26

Ok, no one has started this yet, so I guess I will. I start A&P I on January 18th, lab and lecture. Here are a few good websites I have found...some are basic, some may be more indepth than your... Read More

    Hey Caterpillar Girl....hang in there. I can TOTALLY relate. As you may have read a few posts back on my 1rst lab I got an 84 and I TOTALLY thought I aced it...and truth be told an 84 is the lowest grade I have receieved on ANY test in ANY class since I started back...but you know what they say...you live/you learn...and so I just scored a 112% on my 1rst lecture exam. I TOTALLY understand the overachiever thing....I am a 4.0 student and it literally was like a blow in the gut to get a B. And you know what? HA! My friends made me realize that a B is still ABOVE average!

    So you hang in there...study as hard as you can and give it your all..that's all you can do! This stuff isn't easy as cake...it takes time and energy...but it's all going to be worth it in the end run!

    Here's to your next A!

    Cheers!

    Thanks so much! I feel better today. My next lecture exam isn't untill the week after spring break, so I'll be spending my break with my nose in a book. My classes avg for the test was a 79%, so it helps me feel better that I was above that

    I got my skeletal exam back last night! I made a 93.5!! :hatparty: I didn't think I did that well due to the fact that I didn't study as much as I should have. But much to my suprise I passed. I guess the bonus question helped (name all of the cranial bones).
    I take my skeletal exam this coming Tuesday and our bonus question is to label 5 parts of the long bone. Could that be any easier? I am doing well with studying, I am finding that studying for this test is a lot easier than the last one. I hope I do as well as I did on the last one but if I dont then I only have myself to blame. I just hope it was as easy as the last LOL. We had questions just like Fun2care and Boonersmom posted. Questions that if you did nothing but listened real well in lecture you could pass the test. Hopefully he keeps with the same format.

    Then again maybe we think the questions are easy because we were well prepared for the test.

    Good luck to anyone taking a test next week, and CONGRATS :hatparty:
    to anyone that passed they latest exam. WTG Everyone!!!!!!!

    Sooooo true! If my instructor follows the same format, and I study the same all the way through.....There's my A!! :bowingpur (That's me praying!) lol

    Good start LKG! Congratulations.

    I scored 59.5 out of 60 in my skeleton lab exam and 99% in my first lecture exam (which covered Marieb chapters 1 to 8). Needless to say I am thrilled.

    Incidentally, the 0.5 I lost in the lab exam was because I wrote "Middle Phalange" as opposed to writing "Middle Phalange #2". Details details, how important they are. We've got to watch out for those details.

    Well, I managed to get my grade up to a B, got my lab result (82.3% lol). But, I am happy. It is better than a C that I had and I am motivated even more now :hatparty:

    Fun, how did your exam go? Or, exams?

    I'm glad to know you've got your grade up! Good luck to you!

    I still don't have a grade posted for my exams yet. We'll be going over the exams in class Thursday, so I may not find out until then.

    I'm glad I found this thread. I could use a support group for this experience

    At my community college, Physiology and Anatomy are taught during separate semesters. I did Physio last semester and now in Anatomy I am realizing why it was so hard to do Physio and most of the other students knew some of what I didn't (b/c they mostly took Anatomy first).

    In Anatomy, I feel I have a certain advantage in having taken Physio b/c most of the student's haven't, so some of the functional stuff is a review for me. Which is all the better, because all dem bones... and all those different tuberosities and processes and fossa, foramina, and w/muscles the points of origin and insertion, there's so much to memorize and we have to perform in 2 min intervals for each lab exam item, so you really have to know it.

    Anyway, I did great on the first lecture exam, really well on the first lab exam, did great on my dissection, bombed the second lab exam (was busy dissecting instead of studying about bones) which is ok b/c we can drop one lab exam, just took the second lecture exam which I think I did well on and am facing a another lab exam on Friday, for which I am ill prepared. It's back to points of origin and insertion and back to the cadavers tomorrow evening to poke around some more.

    Good luck to everyone else! I look forward to reading more from everyone else. Glad that there's a range of grades and a good attitude about each of us achieving our own goals on this thread, not comparing ourselves to each other. That's true support.

    I seem to be ahead of a few I study with in my class. I just tell them it's only because I have more time to study the material. It makes a difference, and I'm glad I can help.

    I don't work, and this is the only class I am taking until March 21st. So, my time has been spent....IN A TEXTBOOK!! lol

    Good luck to you, and I'm glad you can drop a lab exam!!! Study hard, and do well on all your other exams!
