A&P Refresher Material

Posted

Hello fellow nursing students/nurses/etc...

I just returned to school last semester to finish my nursing degree.

I'm taking pathophysiology this term and I guess I had no idea how much A&P knowledge would tie in with this course. Unfortunately, it's been about 3 years since I took A&P 1 and 2. I would really like to refresh my memory so I was wondering if anyone could recommend a book, study guide, website, etc to help me refresh my memory WITHOUT having to retake the course. I do still have my old A&P book but I do not have my old notes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated so thank you in advance! :)

Well, I was gonna say turn to your A&P book but you beat me to it. :lol2: Hmm...I know you can buy some supplemental A&P books off of Amazon and EBAY. I've heard good things about Prentice Hall Nursing Reviews & Rationales: Anatomy & Physiology and Prentice Hall Reviews & Rationales: Pathophysiology. You might give those a shot and look into them.

hands down, the anatomy coloring book and the physiology coloring book. these are not jokes but real, excellent workbook-style texts that will have it all back in your mind in no time. my students loved 'em. available in hard copy (paperback books, large format) or for download at your favorite online bookstore (no financial interest to disclose).

and for any student reading this thread....why would it surprise you that you would need a good working knowledge of anatomy and physiology? not just fpr pathophysiology but for, well, daily work as an rn? you will, you know.:twocents:

Thanks for the tips! I looked at some things at my school's bookstore and found some flashcards and a study guide I am planning on getting. I also would love to try the coloring books, I think that would be really helpful actually. Can you tell me the name of the book or where they can be purchased?

um, they would be the anatomy coloring book and the physiology coloring book, available at your favorite online bookstore (i think i said that). those are the titles, capitalized as titles properly are. wait,let me underline them too.
