    That sounds like the teacher I had for microbiology. Started off with 25 and ended up with 12 I think! I had to study so much everyday, but it was fun
    I am glad that you still had fun even though it was difficult. My A&P 1 class was pure hell :angryfire but I did it, I hung in there and miraculously got an A. That particular teacher has a large dropout rate each semester....I hadn't discoverd "rate my professor", yet what a mistake.

    oh yeah so many students lie about how much they study, they act like they just skim through the chapters for 10 minutes and then they get an A. I don't think so!!!!

    yeah yeah ratemyprofessor...well I have to say it's addictive BUT honestly I had better experiences in my 1st semester in college when I didn't know about that site. I swear they rate themselves...he he he. However, I can't get away from that site and definitely use it and work my schedule around certain professors classes...

    I use that site too I found it very very accurate all my instructors I have hated were rated very badly for the same reasons I found to be true. And the good ones I found were rated the way I would have. I don't get the luxery of choosing teachers who are good or bad I have to take the ones that fit my schedule.

    That's good to know. I've been using the sight to figure out what A & P Professor I want to have. I was a little concerned when the other poster stated it had not been very accurate.

    Whew. Because A & P is such a hard subject it's important to me to get a good Professor. A lot of the ones that teach A & P have been rated very poorly. I may go to a different college across town just to take thoses classes.

    I, too, think it's pretty acurate. A good professor makes all the difference in the world. Good luck!

    Ratemyprofessor.com has been quite accurate for me.

    Ok ok you guys win :spin: LOL

    I think what happened with 2 of my classes was that the 1 professor completely changed the way he used to do things...meaning a lot more assignments and a lot harder he wanted to "test" us and see how we do to see if he wanted to do it that way in the future....the other class, yes, she was easy meaning open book tests but no one mentioned the 3 books we had to read the 10 papers we had to write and the group presentation we had to do....I guess it's just my luck LOL

    I think this is pretty standard for studying: for every hour you are in class you should spend two hours outside of class studying. At any rate, it has been a good rule of thumb for me.

    Get yourself one of those Anatomy coloring books and do those. THose helped more than anything else, A TON actually! I would read before lecture, go to class then do the coloring pages, then make flash card s off the powerpoint slides for the tests. I got an A whoo hoo.
    Buy stock in colored pencils....

    Did anyone take A&P I and II over the summer? How does the accelerated speed of the course affect your studying? Did you just study twice as much?
