Hi, am an LPN student starting in August. I would like to know everyone's opinion on whether A&P1 is harder than A&P 2?

Thanks

I think that A & P 1 covered more information. A & P 2 was much easier for me, but then we taught ourselves, our instructor was the absolute pitts.... :rolleyes:

for me without a doubt, a&p 1 was a lot harder. however, it prepared you a lot for a&p 2. a&p 1 is a lot of memorization; where as, 2 is more hands on, learning from doing. to me anyway. a&p 1 was just painful :rotfl:

I honestly didn't see a difference in difficulty. They covered different things is all. The hardest part about A&P1 was bones...the hardest part about A&P2 was muscles...fried my brain trying to memorize them all. Your mileage may vary. :)

See, in our A&P 1 we learned bones and muscles as well as nerves and all the organs, etc.. Come A&P 2 it was pretty much just Resp, GI, Repro. and kidney function. I guess, everyone's class is diffrent.

I start A&P 2 this fall. A&P1 had bones muscles, nervous, integumentary, skeletal systems. 2 covers repro, endocrine, resp, circulatory etc...I have the same instructor though so I would think it will be the same.

I took both classes last year. I found that I had to do more memorization work for AP I. I studied so hard for the anatomy part because of the amount of information. We were lucky though for the physiology tests. There was at least a 20 pt. curve for each test. So if we could do well in the lab practicals we passed. AP II was exactly like Bio 110/General Biology. More general in knowledge.

a&pi was definitely harder. there was so much memorizing of bones and muscles, etc. also by the time i was in a&pii i knew how the professor tested and it was much easier.

I took A&P I last fall and then A&P II this past spring BOTH under the same professor. A&P I was definitely harder than A&P II, in my opinion. I even took Microbiology the same semester as A&P II and I still had a more difficult time getting through A&P I than I did A&P II and Micro.

I felt A&P I was harder because it was the first class I had with all of the new words and required memorization. I think once you get into the swing of things and reach the level of learning that is required in I, II is much easier because you are used to it. Plus, not as much memorization.
