    @Chelsea, I had a great instructor. She was awesome & her lecture style really helped me learn.

    M-F 8-10 hours a day (the day of class I didn't study, just reviewed notes taken in class) and sat and Sunday 6-8 hours. I got a 97% same with patho 96%. Made nursing courses a breeze because I had a strong base. Same with BioChem and got a 95%.
    OMG that's SOOOOOO much studying makes me nervous

    I maybe studied 1 hour a day during the week. Maybe. On Saturday and Sunday I studied 5 to 6 hours each day. It was my "weekend class" because I worked on all of my other classes during the week and left A&P for the weekend.

    I took Physiology last semester.

    Non Physio days about 5 hrs Physio days 2 hours.

    I got an A in that class.

    I will be taking Anatomy this spring though.

    When I took anatomy and physiology, I studied about three hours a day and received a 89% in the course.

    A&P 1 was my first college course ever and I also had a 8 week English composition and a intro to psych online my first semester. I don't recall how many hours because it varied. On average 4 to 5 depending on the chapter. There were days I would stay up all night and go to class at 8am. It was all worth it. Dedicate yourself to your book and picture your goal. Definitely make a study group and use YouTube at your advantage whenever possible.

    Anatomy and physiology were each four credit classes, rule of thumb would be 8 hours per week per class (since they were in 16 week semesters). I probably averaged around 16 hours a week and got a high A in each (104% or so and 98%/100% or so - the second was the way that class did the honors version).

    That was more than I needed to do for an A but my goal was to thoroughly master the material, not just get an A; I genuinely enjoyed the subject and followed a lot of rabbit trails which gave the unintentional benefit of learning how to find and understand serious research as well as additional background in the subject material; I didn't know much about Power Point or Publisher or formatting or proper citations so some of that time was spent on learning them while I did assignments involving them; I had the time; I did other things at the same time for some of those hours.

    An example of the last one: my job at the time involved a lot of walking and not much thinking so I taped lists of vocabulary words to the walls and used them like flash cards - chanted three or four words until I had them down, including spelling, then the next two or three then all five or eight. Another example is rewriting patterns of the vocabulary words while I watched tv or videos with my family in the evenings - I've always done something to keep my hands busy: I just rewrote charts instead of knitting for a while to get the benefit of muscle memory and the periodic return to actively thinking about some aspect of the material.

    Some days I didn't study at all. Other days I studied 2-3 hours. The few days before a test I studied off and on all day.

    My grades? For A&P 1: 97%, A&P 2: 101%, Micro: 97%, and Chemistry: 94%.
