Advice on A&P

  1. 0
    I'm taking A&P1 & 2 (speed course) this semester. This weekend I need to learn muscles and all the chemical reactions to go along with muscles. Test on Monday (quiz) big test on Wednesday. Any advice how to retain muscles?

    Flash cards really help with the memorization

    This is going to sound crazy, but you know that song... "knee bone connected to the, leg bone! Leg bone connected to the, hip bone!"
    I made up my own song to remember muscles and neurotransmitters...
    I basically just sang my notes and made flash cards and flow charts/tree diagrams of the chemical reactions lol

    If you have to memorize location print off an unlabeled picture, put it in a sheet protector, and label the parts over and over again using a dry erase marker. That's really been helping me with memorizing location!

    They have A&P apps for the iPhone. Also audible books you could listen to.

    make flash cards post them on the wall in your bathroom kitchen and bedroom, muscles was very straight forward for me though i just read the notes repeatedly.

    This was absolutely necessary for me. I had to go to lab, touch them, pull the top muscles off to reveal the inside muscles. It was the only way I could learn. I only had to do that with bones and muscles, everything else was lots of memorization.

    Thanks for the advice. Took the lab exam today. Missed one question but it was still a "A" so I'll take it. Wednesday is a huge lecture exam over the muscles. Then on to nerves & test on Monday for nerves. Very fast paced and overwhelming at times
