A&P 1: The Spring '05 Anatomy & Physiology Club - page 28

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

    CAG: Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Get better soon!!!
    Heatherp: We're not even to antagoinsts and synergists yet. So, I don't even know what you're talking about. lol Sorry to hear about your bombing the midterm. Lots of luck to you, and lots of meaningful studying too!



    We still don't have our 1st lab exam grade, but with a 5 point curve on the lecture test, I made a 100!!

    I'm so excited!!

    Good luck everyone!!!!!

    Fun2Care,

    100%? That's truly amazing. Congratulations.

    Thanks everyone for the get well wishes.

    Heatherp, I've been working on memorizing insertions/origins/actions today, and I've been writing lists of synergists and antagonists, just to organize them in my mind. This is not a brilliant study method, but I'm just trying everything I can. I'm also trying to think "logically" about it and, as you and I discussed while we were waiting for open lab to open on Tuesday night, flexing/estensing my muscles to see what does what.

    My methods are not money-back-guaranteed!

    It's a good thing the cadavers have been fully sterilized with formaldehyde and phenol, or I would be a health care menace. As it is, I'm probably not going to make a lot of new friends tomorrow breathing all over my classmates. They were very gracious yesterday in lab, while I dripped and sneezed and coughed all over them, though.

    Heather, best of luck to you tomorrow morning!

    Everyone else waiting for grades, I hope you get good news.

    Well, I got two things to tell ya'll. First I got over 100% with the bonus pts for the second lecture exam in a row. Second, we have been looking for a house for a couple months now and couldnt find anything that suited us. Well, we finally found a house. Original plan was to rent until I got out of school and then buy. Well, this house kind of fell into our laps and we just found out tonight that we got approved for a mortgage. I am just so excited I am about ready to jump out of my skin. LOL Hey maybe that wouldnt be a bad thing then I could get a head start on the muscles HEHEHE. Anyway, just wanted to share the exciting news. We should get the keys in about 45-60 days because we still have to close and the sellers still have to find a house to buy. What is so awesome is that the mortgage company is paying for the closing cost and the sellers have agreed to take $10,000 bucks less for the house so we can show a 5% down payment. Sometimes I feel like I'm dreaming!!!!!

    Thanks for listening to me go on and on hehehehe. Congratulations to all who got great grades on their test. We are all so proud of each other. I love forum!!!!!!

    This is what I've been doing today too. I just thought there might be an easier way to figure out the synergist and antagonists. Well, off to put the kids to bed, and to more muscles. The _______ starts here, and goes to there, and it does this. And, ________ helps it, and _________ is an antagonist. Over and over and over. LOL

    Good luck to you CAG...only good luck in the afternoon for you right? I'll be there at 7:30, even though my test isn't until 9:30.

    Congrats to ALL of you who are doing so well! 100%'s are AWESOME!!!!

    We certainly are a smart bunch here aren't we?????



    I find it interesting how each school splits A+P I + II. What are you all going to cover in A+P I?

    Here's our rundown

    Integumentary System ( done)
    Central Nervous System ( doing now - along with Electrophysiology)
    Peripheral Nervous System
    Endocrine System
    Axial Skeletal System
    Appendicular Skeletal System
    Muscular System

    A+P II
    1. Blood
    2. Heart and Circulation
    3. Lymphatic System
    4. Respiratory System
    5. Digestive System and Metabolism
    6. Urinary system
    7. Fluids/Electrolytes and Acid/Base Balance
    8. Reproductive Systems

    Thanks, Einsteinboi, for the encouragement. I'm glad you have Spring Break to study. I think I am supposed to study the nervous system during Spring Break, but I'm actually going scuba diving (how wicked of me, first vacation in a year).

    I have the flu, if you can believe it, now. The irony is that I can now say that I know the names of all the muscles in my body that ache...

    .
    Hey CAG12345, Get well soon. I got a bad viral infection and it knocked me down for the entire week before my lab exam, so I can sympathise. I hope you're well enough to enjoy your scuba diving. Have fun! . I will think of you and all the muscles you'll be using as I study.

    Thanks!

    For my class, Marieb ch. 1 - 15 is A&P 1. We skipped chapters 2 & 3.

    Our first exam covered Introduction (ch1), Tissues (ch4), Integument (ch 5) & Bone Tissue (ch 6).

    Our second exam covers Skeleton (ch 7), Joints (ch 8), Muscle Tissue (ch 9), Muscular System (ch 10), and Nervous tissue (ch 11).

    Our third, and last exam, will cover Central Nervous System (ch 12), Peripheral N.S. (ch 13), Autonomic Nervous System (ch 14) and Special Senses (ch 15).


    I also came across a great website with muscle lab model pics:
    http://science.nhmccd.edu/biol/ap1model/practical3.htm, which is a link off of a site I think I had previously posted (???). Anyway, the main site is:

    Cool so when I get to bones/muscles you all can help me....and when you all get to the CNS+PNS I can help you!

    YAY!

    For those of you doing muscles I found an AWESOME site

    http://www.gwc.maricopa.edu/class/bi...cle/mustut.htm


    Click on each area it brings up a page and a b+w picture on one side with a colored on on the other. Put your pointer over the colored sections- it will light up the same secton on the B+W and then if you " click" you will see what muscle it is...good way to test!
