Anatomy Spring 2013 - page 3

I can only find threads with Anatomy & Physiology classes. Anybody who is taking solely Anatomy this Spring? I took Physiology last semester. I heard Anatomy is more straightforward than Physiology... Read More

    My teacher is pretty cool so far. I'm taking a&p1 though. He records his lectures on blackboard and it also records the notes he writes on the slides. I got to watch/listen to the Tuesday's class yesterday and attend my night class this evening. I looked very intelligent this evening. I'm only taking this and nutrition though. Maybe I can make it through

    i just got done with Anatomy in fall 2012. Man, it was hard. I will tell you what saved me.


    I studied my butt off. I recorded lectures and rewrote my notes from the lectures. You will be surprised just how much you miss when you are in class. I found myself wondering how i missed all the information that I did. Trust me on this.

    I also found a study partner that could challenge me. I found that when I was quized by my partner, it really helped me narrow down what I knew.

    Study harder than you think you need to. Overconfidence is the downfall of a lot of students. Every test that I freaked out about was a test I passed. I received a 91 in the class. I messed up really bad on one test. That test was the only test I had felt confident about!

    Thanks Austincencal, for the information and advice from someone who has gone through it, survived and got a great grade. I have been doing a lot of rewriting notes multiple times from original to after listening to lecture again then making flashcards and filling out study guide.

    I also have been attending open lab to get more time at seeing the slides before lab exam and then when we start on the cadavers.

    I am just hoping all the time and effort I am putting toward this one class will show!

    May I ask you where you took anatomy?

    Im enrolled at Modesto junior college in CA.

    The cadavers really helped me. I also went to 3-4 labs for other classes so I could have more time with models.

    I Took Anatomy this past semester. I must say it was tough but it was interesting. I enjoyed it especiially towards the end. My school (Long Island University) splits both courses so your not required to take them both at the same time. I on the other hand decided to do that. I. Must say, I was crazy in a way for doing it that way since it was extremely intensed. I did buy a recorder on my ipad and recorded the lectures and would go home, relisten to them and rewrite my own notes. It helped me out a lot. All I will recommend is every day when possible try and study a little at a time. If you record the lectures re listen to them. Just so when the exam comes along your not overwhelmed studying 5 chapters in 2 days or so. A lot of memoriization. I even have an anatomical skeleton at home which helped me a lot when studying the bones.. Good luck and stay on top. Before you know it the semster will be over. I'm not sure about u but I can sure use a mini get away Best of luck...

    Thanks all who are giving advice who have already taken anatomy. I am going to Santa Rosa junior college (CA) and only taking one class with it which isn't hard at all. I have a schedule all mapped out for studying as well as going to open labs all week. We aren't allowed to go into other sections labs because the anatomy classes are very impacted and full here. But they offer open labs when there is no anatomy sections scheduled in the lab. I am looking forward to working with the cadavers because in my high school A&P class we did many hands on work with body organs as well as a fetal pig dissection and I was able to grasp the information better working hands on and seeing it in that form rather then a picture in a textbook with a description!! Again thank you all for the advice!!

    I'm taking Anatomy this semester too, and I'm really excited about it! I LOVE my teacher, she's young and really tries hard to make it understandable and as easy as possible! It is definitely a lot of information and our first lecture exam is a week from today.

    Our first lab practical isn't until February 22nd, but we have to know a LOT to prepare for that! I feel like I've really found my calling because I'm finding all of this VERY interesting!

    Hi alisonisayoshi, wow you are pretty close!! Glad to hear someone else will be going through the same thing as me this semester with anatomy. I would like to go to Sonoma state or any state school for that matter my goal is to get my bachelors degree but I will also be applying to jc's and then see where I get accepted. Sonoma state would be my number one choice for state schools and srjc would be my number one choice for jc options. Where are you looking at going? Are you pretty close to applying?

    Wow that is great!! Ya I have been looking at Dominican too. It's so impacted everywhere that's all you can do is apply everywhere you can!! I am just hoping all the time, hard work and grades will pay off and fate will be on side when time to get the news from all the schools.
