Did anyone think that A&P II was an easier course than A&P I? - Page 2Register Today!
- Jan 8, '12 by bigboiI thought A&PII was easier but it was 95% because of the teacher. She was extremely lenient and she was ready to go home like everyone else, as it was a night class. I loved both classes though.
- Jan 8, '12 by NuSu12I thought they were comparable in terms of the time needed to study and the effort necessary in lab. The information given in both classes is extensive, so studying every night for an hour or so is key. AP2 is much more physiology based, as the others have said, so the type of learning you need to do is sifferent. Less memorization and more application using the information base acquired from AP1. The areas we spent the most time on were the endocrine system, respiratory system and cardiovascular system. Review gas exchange, laws of mass action from chemistry, muscles and the molecules that they function with as well as how they use them, types of transport (active, passive, facilitated), diffusion. All these processes will help you to piece together the new info from AP2. If you got an A in 1, you can do it again. You know what it takes. Best of luck!
- Jan 8, '12 by abiklagsi found II much easier. A&P I was harder because the topics were jumpy/jerky to learn and didn't "flow" for me. II followed a "path" in my mind. thats the best i can explain it. i actually went 3 grades higher (not my grades but a c to a b, or a b- to a A-) so you can kinda see II was easier for me. same teacher for both classes, so i have to say it was the material that made the dif. that and the fact i was taking 1 other class w/ A&P II while w/ A&P I it was one of 4 classes. plus i used 'magic notes' in II which i didn't have in I so those def helped. Good luck in the class!
- Jan 8, '12 by JerseyGirl6I believe a&p II was easier but that was because of the professor which was crazy because both professor of the two a&p classes were friends...lol my a&p I professor would pop up in my a&pII class and everthing and I took a&pII two years after taking a&p I and went from a C+ to an A- in the two coures!!! Well good luck
- Jan 8, '12 by JenniferaschI thought that the Endocrine, Lymphatic and Nervous systems were challenging, fun, but challenging!
Good luck to those going to Micro-I just finished that this Fall...finished w/an 86%! A LOT of info-but was very interesting when we got into the actual diseases-which was at the end of the course!
Onto Nursing School starting tomorrow!
- Jan 8, '12 by stash11Quote from Ev1987HiThere is a rumor in my school stating that A&P II is an easier course to take than A&P I. I (of course) am hoping this is correct, but I just don't know. For anyone out there who has already taken both A&P classes, did you believe that A&P II was an easier course to take than A&P I? Also, is there any tips you can pass down to me, so I can get the most efficient grade possible?
Thank you for your time and responses! :heartbeat
Absolutely not!!!! A&P I was much easier than A&P II lol. That was one tough class and the instructor didn't make it any easier but still pulled an A+.
good luck :-)
- Jan 9, '12 by Ev1987Thank you for all of your replies! :heartbeat There seems to be a good blend of mixed reviews. While some feel as if Anatomy was easier due to the memorization of body parts, others had to work a little harder trying to put information together in Physiology (and vice versa). I personally didn't have too much trouble memorizing the bones and tissues of the human body. I found that quite interesting. From what I have gathered from your comments, I believe that I will have to pay closer attention to A&P II. I think this course will be a challenge for me. Thank you again for your responses!
- Jan 9, '12 by CinDRnycI have the Anatomy & Physio for Dummies and the Cliffs books and they helped me a ton, You can try buying them cheap from Amazon used.
Good luck Ev1987!
- Jan 9, '12 by RNchicaI took Human & Science of the Body online with Bradley Bio-119. I am ready for A&P I and feel confident. I know she dabbled
on all systems which is also in A&P II. I feel that this course gave me a strong foundation so I think A&P will be a lot easier for me.
Just my opinion.
- Jan 9, '12 by alex1987A&P II was easier for me, and I liked it better even though I took it with the hardest teacher in the faculty. You still have to memorize a lot, but this time will be more physiology than anatomy .
