Taking Anatomy & Physiology 2 in same semester as Chemistry ? How to survive?
- 0Mar 20, '13 by Hawkeye Pierce <3I will be taking Anatomy/Physiology 2 in the same semester as intro to chemistry. I'll also be taking english 1020(comprehensive writing), college algebra and philosophy. I usually get A's in english and Phil should be an easy A. How can I get A's in both Anatomy/physiollogy 2 and Chemistry? I'm taking Anatomy/physiology 1 now and am making a B because I missed the first test otherwise it would be an A. I also find that with Anatomy its easy for me to memorize. Like I'll have a 100 terms to memorize and I'll have them done in an hour, 2 tops. Is chemistry memorization? If you have been in this situation please tell me how you made it out alive. I don't have a job and I've already thrown away my social life this semester so those aren't distractions. Thanks to all who answer!

- 0Mar 20, '13 by MonecaChemistry was fun for me, although is a lot of work. Remember that anatomy is not just memorization and the same with chemistry if you memorize everything is not going to make sense for you. In chemistry you need to know the periodic table, and also you are going to use some formulas. Good luck
- 0Mar 21, '13 by melc0305I am currently taking Organic chem and AP 2 together. Luckily, that is all I'm taking. I highly recommend using youtube, khanacademy, etc for chemistry. I'm finding them extremely helpful. I am great at memorization, but that's not really how chem is. It is more like math, where you have to know how to put the puzzle pieces together. Good luck!
- 0Mar 21, '13 by ebinbrooklynMaybe prepare by pre-studying for the one you anticipate you'll have the most trouble in. Chemistry doesn't have a lot of memorization BUT there is a lot of math and having to work through formulas, which can be labor-intensive. MIT also offers 100% free coursework for their classes--there's been a few classes that I've had crummy profs and had to utilize it. Chem lectures: Principles of Chemical Science | Chemistry | MIT OpenCourseWare . Unfortunately they don't offer A&P but there are several similar things on iTunes like this: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/...gy/id590494419 . Also seconding Khan Academy! Or maybe consider dropping one of the easier classes--at my school that course load would be 19-20 credits!
- 0Mar 21, '13 by i♥wordsI took A&P 2 and Introductory Chemistry in the same semester. (That particular chemistry course was for non-science majors [particularly for nursing], a basic combination of general, biological, and organic chemistry.) I didn't particularly love it. Yes, it is mostly memorization and practice, as a PP said. As long as you study both like you do other classes, you'll be okay. The only thing I didn't like was having two labs to deal with, but it wasn't too bad.
- 0Mar 22, '13 by Medic/RN2BYou can do it it..im taking chem and micro and in my opinion micro is harder than ANP 2. Micro is just a lot of info in every chapter! I just stay ahead so I can work ahead a little...they are both online classes....and staying ahead helps a lot! Make sure you a lot enough time to study for both and you will be fine!
- 0Mar 22, '13 by MultiTasker33Chemistry just takes some practice. It is an interesting subject and you should do well if you dedicate some time to it. For A & P I used YouTube a lot. Also, my instructor pointed out a note taking method called "The Cornell Method". This made a MAJOR difference in how I was able to study and retain information for that class. Here's a link to show what it looks like: The Cornell Note Taking System┬*┬╗┬*Homework Help Blog
Good luck! Hope this helps.
