Okay, I am almost done with Chemistry, and even though I am doing good. (Yippee) I am a little anxious about my next class: General A&P. I was wondering which science classes you found to be the most challenging and why. Also, what is the best way to really understand A&P?

I have no idea which sciences are the most difficult...I've taken a survey of general, organic and bio chem as well as cellular biology and am in A&P1 now....my gut response is whatever one I'm currently in is the most difficult:smilecoffeecup:
As I said above, I'm in A&P1 now. I have a high A so far...it has been a lot of memorization, which isn't my strong suit. For me the key has been flash cards, flash cards, and more flash cards. I did buy some flash cards, but I did much better with the ones I made myself. I bought a bunch of RingDexes from Mead....they're 80 3x5 cards with dividers that have two metal rings through them. I'm sure you can make your own versions of these, but it was easier (and inexpensive) to just buy a bunch of them (they're like a buck fifty each). I have different ringdex's for each topic (histology, bones, etc) and just carried one in my pocket everywhere I went.
I also meet with my study buddies in our Science Resource Center to spend a lot of time with the models. As someone else mentioned as well....I try to read the pertinent chapter before the lecture. Oh and speaking of lectures, I record them on my laptop (with my Prof's permission) and listen to them on my iPod. I listen to them in down times....like when I'm on the bus to and from school as well as during my study sessions, while going over my notes.
Best of luck and congrats on the good job in Chem.
