Self Paced Online Anatomy & Physiology (not accredited)

  1. 0
    Hey, Just wondering if anyone has suggestions on an online a&p class. It doesn't need to be accredited, I already have my classes in but I got accepted for the spring semester, and I'd like to do some major brushing up. I just don't feel like I remember very much from my a&p classes.
    Thanks for any help!

    Why don't you buy the a&p book from the made incredibly easy line. It would be more cost effective than a class.

    Barron's EZ Anatomy & Physiology is also very good. It has tons of review questions and an exam at the end of every chapter. Something like that would be sufficient for your purpose.

    Anatomy & Physiology Made Incredibly Easy!: Lippincott: 9781451147261: Amazon.com: Books

    E-Z Anatomy and Physiology (Barron's E-Z Series): I. Edward Alcamo Ph.D., Barbara Krumhardt Ph.D.: 9780764144684: Amazon.com: Books

    and

    The Complete Human Body (Book & DVD-ROM): DK Publishing, Dr. Alice Roberts, Medi-Mation: 9780756667337: Amazon.com: Books

    Start memorizing the bones and muscle locations (carpals, metacarpals, patella, ect), bloodflow through the heart, the flow of the digestive system and its parts (ileum, duodenum, ect.), the parts of the brain and their functions (temporal lobe, frontal lobe, ect.). Knowing things like the different parts of the body will give you a heads up in A&P, especially the Anatomy part, as it's all memorization.

    I also second YouTube videos! I would play them on the way to class for review.

    Thanks Devon Rex for finding that link of the videos I had posted, I had forgotten about that. OP, definitely check out the link Devon Rex gave you, it's a very long list of A&P videos, broken down by body system, that I have used and compiled over the last two years. You'll gain quite a bit of information from them.

    Check out Straighterline.com. There are multiple courses that are self paced and cohort based. In addition, some courses are lead by professors that may be transferred to a college.

    Thanks so much for your help! I really appreciate the info on the YouTube videos, I use YouTube all the time, but never thought of that for the A&P videos. Thanks so much for compiling the list, that will save tons of time!
    I start the nursing program on jan 14, and I'm nervous and excited...more on the nervous side though, so I want to prepare myself as much as possible. I'm sure exactly like everyone else entering their first semester in the program.

    Thanks again for all of the help, I really appreciate it!
