    Today was my first lab in a&p 1, and ever since the class ended I have been having major panic attacks.I am so overwhelmed. I don't know how I am going to pass this class. It's so complicated with the tissues and stuff Any advice/words of encouragement would be so helpful and greatly appreciated!
    Find the study methods that work best for you and use them. Be willing to put on the study time--as with another poster here, total immersion worked for me. Flash cards, recording and relistening to lectures (especially during my commutes to and from school), utilizing Open Lab and every other resource my school offered, and study groups all helped bring me A&P success. Don't forget your instructor! Make an appointment and see your instructor whenever you have trouble grasping a concept or to even get study tips. My instructors have been the best resource of all.

    Yes, A&P can be intimidating. I remember seeing the course schedule that first day and thinking, "What have I gotten myself into? There is no way I'll be able to do this! " But then I realized I could. Now I look back knowing I did. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm extremely proud of that accomplishment.

    Try not to listen to hearsay! Some people claim "That class is impossible!" or "The teacher is a witch!" Whatever. What those people find difficult may not be difficult for you. In my experience, the people who were always trying to psych out other students were the ones who never did the work and wanted to improve their own chances of getting in by shaking the confidence of others.

    Thousands of people have survived A&P I. You can, too!

    Take pictures of the slides and set up a class Facebook page. We have done that for my class and it has been great. My classmates will post their pictures from lab and study materials they come across. A&P is a challenging class and everyone wants to succeed.

    Also find some study partners and study weekly together or if not, at least before the tests. It helps. Good Luck! You will do great!
