Hello everyone, who has started A&P 2? I know we can all use support from each other. I for one have started class and my first day was yesterday. The syllabus doesn't look to bad. I just hope I will enjoy this more than A&P1.... Read More

    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?

    We have our midterm in a couple of weeks!! We only have a midterm and a final oh, and four quizzes worth 4pnts a piece. We also have to do a lab report on one of the experiments we're doing in class. I have done the final draft on mine to get it out of the way. Final draft worth 10 Pts and Final paper worth 20 so in all 30 Pts!! I understand all the details of the heart so far with blood flow. Does anyone know the best way to memorize these ARTERIES and VEINS!!! Please help!!!

    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!
