    I start Ap2 along w Bioethics on 9/10/12. My biggest worry is that I took AP1 quite awhile ago.

    I am hoping.to.apply for ABSN which will begin 9/13.

    How is AP2 compared to AP1?

    pamelacnj I would say brush up a little on your A&P1 from an online resource from this website. I am really enjoying A&P2 it deals more with the body systems and the physiology part of it! I can relate more to this part. How are classes coming along for you? Keep us posted!! You can do this!

    Yes! Draw a diagram, starting with the heart and trace the arteries all the way through the body. You don't have to be a good artist...a stick figure will do. Then work your way back to the heart with the veins. I found using a red colored pencil for the arteries and a blue colored pencil for the veins was really helpful. My stick figure "blood vessel man" looked pretty hilarious, but it REALLY helped me remember them!

    Good luck on your test!!!

    Had our first Physiology exam today. I'm SO glad I went to the optional exam review session yesterday. 2 hours well spent It was very helpful!!! In fact, the exam was almost word-for-word what was given to us in the practice test yesterday. I feel very good about this one. There were 3 essay questions, like describe a negative feedback loop as it pertains to homeostasis. Define the half-life of a hormone and the impact on a lipophobic vs. a lipophilic hormone in the blood stream. Lots of questions on passive/active transport.

    There were 5 bonus questions on the exam and I think I got them all. Can't wait to find out what my grade is!

    I got a B for A&P 1 'cause I let my skin problems control me after exams 2. I got 90's for the first 2 exams then I gave up because of acne problems. I am now taking A&P 2 and my skin isn't bad.. it is early to tell how I am doing as we started like 2 weeks ago. My teacher said the first 2 exams are the hardest, but after that, we should be OK. What I do is watch videos on Youtube. I just search for "Endocrine system lecture" and lots of video pop up and most are 55-118 minutes long. I suggest you do that before lecture. It does help me. I have a test on Tuesday. I will let you guys know what I got once she post my grades in blackboard.

    PS: If you get B and up.. you should be fine. Universities here require at least a B and up.
