    I took A&P I in a six week session with 4 hours of class 3 times a week. It was ROUGH. I was also working full time. I would say I studied for approximately half an hour each night after class (M, T, W) and then 3-4 hours Thursday, 3-4 hours Friday. Thursday and Friday was what I consider lazy studying (i.e. with the TV on, listening to music, taking frequent breaks, etc.) I would hardcore study for 1-2 hours on Saturday. For weeks that I had midterms and finals I would add an extra hour to each study time. So altogether on non-exam weeks about 8 hours a week. I ended up with an A in the course.

    This was my study plan that I copied from another post I wrote:
    1. Read the chapter BEFORE lecture. Highlight only one main point in each paragraph (otherwise I'd highlight the whole thing)
    2. Make an outline of headlines and definitions.
    3. Make flashcards with the definitions.
    4. Explain every concept to your family. This annoyed my family so much and most of the time they wouldn't listen but it helped to me vocalize and talk myself through it. If you can, do this with a study group instead!
    5. At the end of every test, note which types of questions and which topics your professor is most fond of.
    6. Study these topics like CRAZY for mids and finals.
    7. Good luck and have fun! I loved learning A&P!

    Good luck!

    I studied 1-2 hours a day. The week before an exam it would become 3 hours a day. But in addition to that I went to Open Lab 2 times/week for 2 hours at a time. I love littledoe's study tips above!

    It's been a while , but. Really doubt I studied every day. Maybe an average of 2 hours a day during the week. . Perhaps more if you include any night-before-test cram sessions.

    I received an A in both A&P I and II. I never had any difficulty with the exams, scored over 90 every time and even a few perfect scores ...and I was never stressed. Here is my studying secret: I would rewrite my notes after lecture. I would do so either immediately following the lecture, or at least try to do it over the weekend for that weeks worth of notes, in order to not get too far behind. Then about 3 days before the exam, I would reread aloud and highlight my rewritten notes. I would then take any practice quizzes or review any additional material. Similarly, I would try to review as little as possible on the day of the exam. This method works wonders for me. Good luck!

    Oh P.S when you're rereading your notes, make up some silly ways to memorize stuff. It works!

    One of my grants requires that I meet with a "study" counselor each semester to determine my needs, set a realistic study schedule, ect for each class. Her advice yesterday on anatomy was to block 1 hour post class to rewrite/reorganize notes, 1 hour in the evening to work on memorization, and one hour each morning to review what I had attempted to memorize the night before. So on class days 3 hours on non class days 2. She said this applied to weekends as well. Her study schedules have worked for me thus far, and I've really only struggled when I didn't listen to her.

    I took A&P 1 over the summer. The class was 5 weeks long, 4 days a week(M-TH). I found myself studying around 3 hours each weekday(M-TH) and like 4 hours on Saturdays. I never really study on Sundays. I got an A.

    I took A&P 1 over 5 weeks. I studied on average 1.5-2 hours a day outside of class and got an A.

    I think it all depends on what chapter you were studying, and or which test. Some times 2-4 hours and some times I put in 6 hours for tests. I pulled an A.
