I am currently retaking AP I lab and I am just struggling so much. The class is only based on 3 tests and a final. Ive already taken the first 2 tests and gotten a 62 and 63. I have a chance at redemption because the final replaces the lowest test grade but Im just so overwhelmed. The first time I took AP I got a B in lecture and a D in lab and I need at least a C in the class and Ive already taken AP II but at a different school where the lab and lecture are combined and got an overall A. Does anyone have any study tips? Its just the tests are super hard they are just a fill in the blank and she counts off for spelling errors the next test is bones and muscles and I only have 3 weeks to learn it all !!!

I find it helpful to use a few methods to retain everything.

1) Don't try to remember everything at once. Try to group one group first and then move on (Ex. Get the epithelial tissues down before you go to connective.)

2) SELF QUIZ SELF QUIZ and SELF QUIZ!!!!! I get a blank sheet and write everything that I know we need to know for lab test (Functions, Locations and Structure). If you don't know it on your test you probably won't for the actual one either :)

3) Relate everything to your own body. You have everything that your book/teacher is discussing (besides organs of the opposite sex).

4) Don't get over-whelmed, you have a half of a semester to go! Don't give up!

When I had to do bones and muscles I made up songs, raps and even would associate different bones with things to help me remember there location....such as the temporal bone is near the ear which you need to hear the tempo of the music. Just anything silly that will help you remember 😀

Good day, chancec13:

Did you ask for help when you did poorly on the first test? Part of the keys to success is getting help immediately after doing poorly on any item (test, quiz, paper, etc.) rather than waiting until one does poorly two or more times. That stated, I found labs to require spending a lot of contact time. Go to every lab, take pictures, create one's own study guide, stay the entire lab, and if the school as a learning center with lab models or optional lab time, make use of it.

As previously shared, test often.

Thank you.
