Sorry all... But I just GOTTA vent!!! lol

Have any of you ever taken a class from a teacher where you ended up feeling like you weren't even learning anything?! This is what happened to me last fall. I took Anatomy and Physiology 1 from the only teacher that teaches it at my small community college. I had been warned that nobody passes his class, that he was hard to understand and so on...But I was a 4.0 student that had never run into a teacher that I couldn't get along with because I thought of myself as a very hard working student. Then I met him. He was truly a TERRIBLE teacher! You couldn't understand ANYTHING he said and if you ever had the nerve to ask him a question in class you were put instantly on his "bad side". Not to mention the fact that his answers would leave you even more confused!!!! :cry: I maintained an A through his class by studying for hours and hours every single day. He didn't teach ot test from our text books, so I had to pull in information from every possible source! The library, the internet, other A&P books... Yet in my quest to pass his "impossible tests" I left the class feeling that I didn't learn all that much! I actually decided not to take A&P2 this spring because I had to figure out where I could take it with a different teacher. Now I'm signed up to take it online this summer and found out that I am several chapters behind where this college is starting and have to spend the next few months learning stuff that was never even gone over in class. :banghead: Anyway, now that I'm behind and frantically trying to teach myself things I have already paid to be taught...I'm a bit frustrated! lol Anyone else been in a similar situation???

My anatomy teacher is pretty terrible. I will be lucky to get a B in this class. Learning is not the right word for what I'm going through. More like being force-fed information and given no chance to absorb it before I'm tested on the information. Seems like there must be a better way to do this. It's no wonder that most nurses that I've met don't know anything about anatomy.

Wow, do we all go to the same school and have the same teacher?!?! haha!! My A&P1 teacher was terrible! He never explained anything, just said "this is this, that is that". Threw information at us like we had been nurses for years. He was a total jerk and never available for help after class, no office hours or anything! I managed to get a low B and spent my break trying to catch up on what I didn't get in his class (which was everything!).

My A&P2 teacher is a godsend. She is just...wow.
