    Peppermint oil or oil of wintergreen. That's all I'm going to say, because I have this sick feeling that you're posting this question not because you have a genuine educational interest but because you have some sort of prurient interest.

    Prove me wrong. Tell us what kind of programme you're in (pre-nursing, pre-med, associate's degree nursing, bachelor's degree nursing) instead of just vague comments like "community college". I don't know of any community college programmes that are well-funded enough to offer human cadavers for dissection to non-health sciences students. Spell "cadaver" correctly. Then I'll tell you all about cadaver dissection and study tips.

    Otherwise, I'm chalking you up in my "creepy sicko" book and moving on.

    Wow. Our community college doesn't have cadavers for A&P. I've got mixed emotions about that...on one hand, I'd like to see the "real mccoy", but on the other hand...I know they stink worse than the fetal pig that I got to dissect in HS biology years ago!

    The university where I got my bachelor degree (non-nursing) had cadavers for their Anatomy courses. But then, there was a medical school on campus as well. Lots of folks donate their bodies to that school, which is great for the students.

    One of my best friends in college was a TA for one of the anatomy labs & she didn't have any problems with working with cadavers. She said very few people did have trouble, most folks were freaked out before the class even started, but once they got to working on them, it wasn't that big of a deal.
