    Even through out allllllllllllllllllll the MANYYYYYY hours of studying, find a small piece of your day for yourself.

    One thing I noticed when taking A&P was even when I slept I couldn't get my brain to TURN OFFFF! I was dreaming muscles, nerves, insertion points ect! I found that at least the last ten min's of my day a bit of mozart or bach with a candle buring and a book helped my brain to "reset" so I was able to sleep!

    I cant emphasize enough to STUDY STUDY STUDY. You might as well apologise to your family and friends now, you'll see them again at the end of the semester!

    I know for me, I never did anything but maybe eat out ONCE on the weekends while my DH brought the boys hunting, fishing, four wheeling ect. When finals were over this last semester, my youngest who is 7 said he was SOOOOO glad that NOW I could spend time with him. HURT.... but I know in the end it will be worth it all. Just give him a month of me always there and he'll be beggin for me to go back!! LOL

    I suggest that they get the books they will need ASAP and just read them. They might not make any sense right now but will give you a head start before the actual school starts.
    I agree with this, read ahead as much as you can, make friends or communicate with ppl in your program it's beneficial. Relax and enjoy the journey.
