Summer A&P1----- How to prepare
- 0Apr 4, '13 by Irish_MistI am thinking about taking summer A&P1. When I say that, I plan on taking no other courses in the month of June. I will eat, drink, breathe, and sweat A&P1. With all that said, would any of you have any suggestions on what to do to prepare for this class? Is there a workbook or flash card set you could suggest? I want an A in this class.

Even if you learned 10 a day from now til then you'd have a pretty solid foundation. Good luck! It'll be so worth it!

The leg muscles are the worst I think. The bones and their markings/structures are a good place to pay some early attention to as well. Make lots of notecards, they help. I finished A&P 1 with an A average and I am halfway through part 2 with an A avg also. Good Luck!

For me this is ho we covered stuff
-Bio and Chem Review
-Brain Anatomy/ nerves
-Nervous system physiology.
