    In my class we dissected cats, pigs, and rats. The animals themselves were not that bad, but the smell at times was HORRIBLE!! Despite that, anatomy was one of my favorite classes! I too was nervous the first day and thought I was going to be grossed out, but I was fine. On the first day we had to dissect a rat and nobody wanted to be the one to cut it open (we worked in groups of four). Finally I said I would do it so that I could overcome my fear and it worked!! So don't worry - you'll be fine!! Good luck!!

    here's an a&p site i found this morning. i thought it was great. you'll want to check it out and bookmark it.

    http://www.sirinet.net/~jgjohnso/index.html it is the home page of the biology teacher at frederick high school in frederick, oklahoma. this instructor teaches a high school class of a&p. although you want to link into the biology ii homepage, i notice that there is information in the biology i homepage that also pertains to some a&p subject areas. there are plenty of notes, quizzes and practice exercises scattered throughout this extensive site, but i could not find any answers. presented in a little easier than college level, i thought this was an awesome introduction to a&p!
