A&P 1: The Spring '05 Anatomy & Physiology Club - page 44

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

    jules: Good luck on your final lab tomorrow.

    Nursestudentin05: yw! (When did you look, I posted more this evening, and put more nervous system quizzes on the quiz page. Hope they can help you!

    Boonersmom: Any words from the wise about the Endrocrine system will be appreciated!

    Right now I am taking a break from making my recordings of my notes. Once I finish, I put them on CDR's and listen to them in my truck everywhere I go. I think that has helped me with the other two exams, so I have to keep it going. (Don't fix what's not broken.) lol

    11 days until my last lab exam, sometime around then (on or before the 10th) my last lecture.

    Yes, I am so ready for it to be over too.

    Hmmm best I can offer...

    Did you touch on the endocrine system at ALL this year? See we did it in lab last month ( histology/hormones) but no where near in depth as the lecture part we are doing right now. I mean it pretty much breaks down to each gland produces/secretes it's own ( except the pituitary which secretes hormones produced by the hypothalamus- so it acts as a storage area basically and releases them due to control from the hypothalamus).

    The hardest part like I said is the disorders of each one...and that for the most part they all sort of intertwine...like 1 hormone affects release of another whereas another inhibits. ACK

    My best advice, really, is to make a chart. A BIG CHART- so you can see it laid out really big and then it makes more sense...mine has arrows in different colors for " stimulates/releases or inhbits..or detects...ex for one hormone that detects high Ca+ another will detect low Ca+, etc etc.... Some of them will be pretty forward and others will have you going eh? LOL! But, really as you know repeating them everyday you will finally get the hang of it.

    Honestly because we have had to- and still are- rushing through it it *seems* harder to me than the nervous system. I bet had we had time to pace it out like the ANS/PNS I would feel a lot more comfortable right now. I have one week to get it down....so back to the books I go! Good luck w/ it in A+p2 ( that's when you said you had it. right?)....Im almost sort of glad I am getting it over with now.

    lol...good job!

    BoonersMom....yes, I think it's the first thing in our A&P II. uggghhhh I'm pretty sick of Ca+ by now... :chuckle I'm just dreading the thought of knowing I have to learn all of A&P II in 4 weeks. I hope I don't regret it. I'm just glad the "have to make an A" isn't there as much as with my A&P I. For myself, the A&P I is a pre-req, the A&P II is a non-nursing course I'm getting completed before I start nursing school. I don't want any other classes except the nursing school courses, and clinicals.

    YAY!

    I just got back from lecture- I got a 98% on my ANS/PNS/Special Senses test...and she's allowing 2pts extra credit- so I will have a full 100%!

    Made my day

    Congrats BoonersMom!

    LKG6: We are disecting a sheep's brain Thursday. Then we have one review day (next tuesday, then the last lab test on the 5th ...thursday)

    I just hope I know more than I think I do. I was ready for the other two lab practicals. This one is giving me a headache. :uhoh21:

    Congratulations Boonersmom!!! :hatparty:

    Fun, you are not the only one. I spent at least 2 hours in lab last week or so looking at the brain, watching the video but I still don't feel comfortable about it, and the test is next Monday :uhoh21:

    Girls!
    Still alive?
    I am done with psychology, had my final today.
    My anatomy final is tomorrow and I am losing it.
    I think I am going to reread Nervous and Autonomic System chapters and take the night off. At this point, there is not much I can absorb. lol
    How are you doing?

    Ladies,

    I am officially tired of studying. I had my lab final monday. I think that went well. Now I am attempting ANS and somewhat confused. We still have senses to go. I have the eye down pat, I was an Optician in my previous life. Now if I can get the hearing one down and do well on the final on May 10th I will be so happy. I hope everyone is staying strong!!!

    I'm still here, I think. lol

    Nursestudent: good luck!


    I took my 3rd Dev Psych test yesterday, and made an 82 on it. I have to make at least a 76 on the last test next week to make an A for the course, or at least a 27 to make a B.

    As for A&P I, I feel a little better about the knowing the brain/spinal cord stuff for the last lab, not sure sure about the lecture yet. Lab is on the 5th, so I have a few more days to study, and hopefully, whenever I decide to take the lecture test (btw the 5th and the 10th), I'll have that down a little more.

    Did I say I was taking a night off? lol
    I re-read both chapters and plan on reading a bit more on ANS and I promise, lol, in bed by 11.
    Thanks girls, wish me luck, I'll need it
    And good luck to you too :hatparty:
