I am wondering if anyone could recommend any books to read, before taking science classes. Like what books helped you succeed in that specific class? Before I entered into Accounting , I self taught myself a lot of it, so I kind of want to do the same for Nursing. I want to prepare myself for success.
I love to read, and I personally love to take notes on the books I read. It is just what I have always done.
Thanks in advanced..

Once you are registered for classes, see if you can get a copy of the syllabus from the professors as well as a list of what books you will need for the class.
For A & P, I found "CliffsNotes Anatomy & Physiology Quick Review" to be helpful. For human biology, I found ""Homework Helpers: Biology"" to be helpful.

I would recommend to get a medical terminology
book and try to understand how medical terms are created and the meaning. It will do wonders later on your studies.
Start by finding youtube videos with content related to the lab portion of anatomy and physiology... There is a looooooooot of terms to learn and you must be able to identify them visually. Or a good a&p book would do the trick.. Not much new has been discovered about anatomy so any old edition of a college textbook will help you.
