    I haven't taken A&P yet, but plan to take it next spring. This summer I am planning to watch a bunch of youtube videos/lectures regarding chemistry and A&P. Check out Khan Academy's human biology section.

    If you learn all the names of the bones and muscles in the body, you would be way ahead of the game! Many websites can help you with that.

    I really benefitted from reading Barrons EZ A&P

    I would try to get a hold of the A&P text that your school uses. I know all the A&P sections at my school use the same one. That would be great if you could.

    To be honest, A&P is an insane amount of work and while its not going to hurt to check out some books before the class starts I doubt it will help much. My advice is to enjoy the free time you have right now. Once class starts you'll be flooded with a ton of complicated information to learn.

    I second this. I studied ahead for my A&P class over break and it really did not give me much of an edge. You have plenty of time to learn it.

    It won't help you with a&p but any books by echo heron will get you psyched to be a nurse. Real life stories of her journey to become a nurse as well as others. Love those books.

    I actually think that starting ahead of time could be helpful. I had a particularly difficult time keeping up with reading and studying because there was just so much to learn. I had taken an anatomy class in high school that helped me to at least have the basics down already. I'd get a book like A&P for Dummies or A&P Made Incredibly Easy. Or, an even better thought, you could get an anatomy coloring book and work through that. I had one but had no time during the semester to actually color (seriously, coloring takes a while!).
