Hey everyone, First exams for A&P should be rolling around for everyone pretty soon (I have my lab practical on Monday and my lecture exam on Wednesday). Now, I thought it would be kinda cool if we all share how we did (if you... Read More

How are you guys liking your professor's testing style? Mine is fairly confusing.. you really have to read the question multiple times to pick up on key words, ughhh select all that apply, and essay questions. I overheard some girls in my class saying they had to leave some of those blank! I suppose at least with multiple choice you can guess, haha. This is definitely a class you have to study hard for!

The lecture exam is on Wednesday and I'm scared silly...but I think it'll turn out okay :-) I LOVE my prof he's young and has a very good understanding of what it's like as a student, he's probably my favorite teacher that I've had so far
- 0Feb 12, '13 by TeeanneThe first exam - on the cell biology, anatomical terms, and chemistry - was a timed online test because it wasn't covered at all in lecture. I got a 96% on that. Last week we had our first in-class exams, I got a 96% on the practical and a 90% on the lecture. I'm not thrilled with the 90%, but at the same time I am grateful. I spent a lot of energy on the practical, that I felt like I didn't spend nearly enough time or energy on the lecture material.
Next time I want to make sure I spend more time reviewing the lecture material. I think now that I'm not so nervous about what to expect in practical it will be a little easier to balance. Of course we're learning all the skeleton stuff now and ouch, that seems like a lot to remember!
Oh! I also want to take advantage of the open lab time this time around.
- 1Feb 12, '13 by missmollieWith A&P, study everyday. Any anatomy you have to learn (always my downfall) study everyday and attend open labs. I make question sheets based on lecture notes and lecture recordings. It's been my understanding thus far that if you understand the basics of a key point, you can pretty much figure out the rest if asked in a question.
That being said, I did study roughly 15 hours a week for A&P. It's a lot of time and prep, but don't be down! I knew so much by the time I was finished, it was definitely worth it.
- 0Feb 19, '13 by jesslynn_85I got an 88 on both my lecture and lab test. I record the lectures and study everyday. I also go to school an hour before class and go to the open lab to look at lab stuff as well as study lecture stuff. This lab practical will be harder because it's on the all of the skeleton(minus the skull) and blood. 2nd lecture and lab tests are next week. We have quizzes everyday so that motivates me to study because the average of our quiz grade goes in as a lab practical grade at the end!! I have an A in the class right now so I'm very happy but will study harder and more for the next set of tests.
