    Wow, I feel like I'm lagging behind!!! We haven't started yet. I take it M & W's starting next week. My nutrition starts this Thursday though.
    We started on January 5th, so quite a bit earlier than most of you But our fall semester ended Dec 12.:hatparty:

    Wow, this has been a loooong break for me! My last A&P class was on Dec 6th and I don't start A&P 2 until next Monday. LOL...hope my brain is still functional! It's gonna be tough getting back into the swing of things with school. I'm pretty excited to get this spring semester rolling! I've been told that my A&P 2 teacher is terrific...what a nice change from last semester that will be. Watch, with my luck...the nice teacher decided to retire over Christmas break and I'll be stuck with the ole broom rider!! Good luck guys!! I'll be posting again soon

    My A&P 1 class was 4 YEARS AGO!!! Am I scared, shaking in my shoes??? Yep. Say a prayer for me!!!! I will have to drown myself in A&P this semester.

    I start my lecture tomorrow (tuesday) and my lab on thursday. I have the same teacher for both and have heard good things about her...so i hope they are true
    I have been enjoying the break and I hope it won't be too tough to get back into the swing of things.

    I noticed that we have way less material to cover in A&P 2. We covered 18 chapters in A&P 1 and we only have 10 chapters in A&P 2! We left off last semester with the endocrine system. Anyone else notice this?? It seems odd to me.

    Mandarella, Don't panic! You're going to do great Once you get started, it will come back to you. Also, if you ever need help, there are plenty of great people on this site that will be here for you....myself included! As you can see, we are all in this together.

    I noticed the same thing. Last semester we covered 17 chapters and this semester we are only covering 11 chapters. We just picked up with the endocrine system on Saturday. I am taking a Saturday class and I have lecture and lab on the same day. 5 long hours each Saturday morning

    So do you suppose that means it's going to be harder?? LOL
  10. by   Achoo!
    I found A&P II more time consuming. Knowing the systems inside and out, front and back, step by step of how things are absorbed, filtered, excreted and why, along with all of the anatomy that goes along with,is very time consuming- not necessarily harder.

    That makes a lot of sense. IE the chapter on the endocrine system has taken forever and we're still not done. We've already devoted 4 hours of lecture to it, and will finish tomorrow, starting the circulatory system. It was like 16 pages of notes in our supplement - NONE of the chapters in A&P1 were that long. (We can purchase pretyped notes from the bookstore that we add our own notes to...it's awesome!)

    I started A&P 2 tonight. We just reviewed the syllabus. My teacher seems really nice though. We have 5 lecture tests and 3 lab tests. Only thing is, almost everybody in the class knows somebody else in the class and I know nobody so lab should be interesting ! We'll see. I also am taking Micro, Nutrition, and Music App. Full load but I can do it ! Or at least that is what I keep telling myself. Best wishes to all.
