    Just had exam 1 which covers the endocrine and cardiovascular systems. It was tough but I think I did well. Really quite interesting especially the physiology aspect.

    Endocrine and heart are the hardest chapters, that's what I think. In here, it is different. Exam 1 is special senses and endocrine, exam 2 is heart and blood vessel. It would suck to take the 2 hardest chapters together . ;\

    SopranoKris, I'm taking pathophysiology as well as pharmacology in the spring. Patho sounds interesting but I'm not looking forward to pharmacology. Also taking a human sexuality class just for kicks, since I'm done with everything else I can do!
    I'm taking Pharmacology this semester and it's the bane of my existence. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have so many other classes. The volume of mandatory reading is astronomical and it's a LOT of non-intuitive information to absorb. If you're good at Biochemistry, you'll do good in Pharm. If you hate Chem (like me) than it's not that much fun.

    I'm really looking forward to Patho because I'll finally be at university instead of CC to take it.

    Hi All- I'm new to this post, but finding it so helpful! Thanks Nurse2b7337 for starting the thread.
    I have my second exam for A & P II tomorrow. In fact, I'm 'studying' right now! LOL!

    The first exam was Endocrine. This one is on Blood and the Heart. I'm finding A &P II pretty fascinating, not boring at all so far. I hope I can keep up the momentum and positivity. Made an A on the first exam. Fingers crossed for another A tomorrow.

    Best of luck to everyone!
    Cheers!

    Just checked my scores for the second exam- 95%! Woo hoo! It was on Blood and the Heart. There was a good mnemomic that helped me keep the coronary arteries straight: (Right)RPM and (Left)LAC...people drive with RPMs and are Law Abiding Citizens.

    Next up- Blood Vessels, Lymphatic System and Immunity. Any advice out there on memorizing the very long list of veins and arteries? Any vids or strategies with blood vessels or lymphatic sytem? Any tips are super appreciated.
    Thanks! And Good Luck! : )

    Found some great A&P videos on Interactive Biology, by Leslie Samuel | Making Biology Fun!. Dr. Samuel explains things in such an easy way to understand them. I highly recommend watching a few if you feel stuck on a concept.
    Cool vids

    Is everyone here a pre nursing student? I'm still trying to finish pre Reqs before I can get into program. It's been hard! Mainly because I'm a single mom to two boys ...BUT so far I've excelled at getting As & Bs in all of my classes so I'm hoping to transfer to a university if I keep my gpa up.

    Yep! This is my last semester of pre-reqs...yay! I'm applying in January and hope to be placed in either a Fall 2013 or Spring 2014 class. Fingers crossed!!!

    Good luck to you! As long as you have all the university pre-reqs done and good grades, you should be able to get accepted. I know the university here takes nursing students twice a year. The CC where I'm going takes students twice a year, but only has one application period for both. So you have to apply a year in advance...ugh!
