    That's how my lab works too. I start freaking myself thinking about the time limit and start stressing. They love to make it hard for us all!

    I know what you mean. Everytime I think I can tell the difference between Simple Columnar Epithelium and Transitional Epithelium, I look at a slide and pick the wrong one. I'll check Quizlet out. I have my test in lab on Wednesday as well. Goodluck! Let me know how you do.
    Here's a GREAT website that will help reinforce everything in Anatomy. Take the online quizzes as much as you want to until the material sinks in. It really helped me in Anatomy and I ended up with an A in the course. I told my prof about the site and he added it to the helpful web links page that he gives to all his students.

    It's tough but it's all about how you study. How I obtained an A in AP1 was making flashcards of everything needed to know, set them in groups of 5 (easier for brain to memorize this way), I would go through them and write everything down, yes everything. By writing it, when the test paper is in front of you it's automatic to write down your answer since you've been doing that for weeks (or whatever the time is). I wouldn't stop until I knew all of them front and back. Good luck!

    I was using flash cards and my professor told use you can't learn and understand Anatomy with flash cards, but I will for sure to back to using them.

    Flash cards are more for rote memorization, so he probably meant you can't thoroughly understand with them. Personally, I agree with him. If you can't understand the bigger picture of what's going on and apply the knowledge, all the flash cards in the world won't help you. Personally, I find them to be a waste of time I'd rather spend studying productively. I have over 100% in both lecture and lab, so obviously you don't have to use flash cards to be successful. This is information that all our nursing classes will build on, and we will continue to use for our entire careers. As such, I always aim for understanding the material before memorization. If you have a good understanding, anything that needs to be memorized is much easier.
