? about A&P

  1. For those of you in (or that have taken) A&P, what was your lab like?

    Mine stinks! I thought lab was supposed to *enhance* our understanding of lecture, this lab confuses everyone further! The lab instructor is terrible -- I won't get into the reason for it, but basically he's disorganized, spastic and very hard to follow. He just drones on and on about his life, realizes he's running out of time and then *FLIES* through the material we'll need for the test the next week. To top it off, we've not done a SINGLE experiment! Is this typical? I think we are going to finally dissect a sheep brain or eye in two weeks, it'll be the first time we've done anything besides take notes and have tests -- and our semester ends the 1st week in December!

    I enjoy our lab, we have a good instructor. The only thing we have disected was a sheep's brain and only two people did it and the rest of us watched. They did have disected cats in a few weeks ago so we could look at muscles, but I could not look at them.

    Mostly she goes over the material we need to know and then we look at the models for however long we need to and then we leave and come back next week for a test. I am doing great in my lab, it's the lecture I can't seem to handle.

    Good luck and I hope it gets better for you.

    I am so sorry...

    I guess I was lucky I had the same instructor for both lecture and lab so they did "enhance" each other...
