I was reading ahead for my Anatomy class. We are going to be going over the joints and movement terms this week. At the end of the chapter, there are critical thinking questions and I thought one of them was pretty funny. It reads "After your second Human Atatomy exam, you dropped to one knee, raised your arm over your head with one hand clenched into a fist, pumped your arm up and down, bent your head back, looked straight up, and yelled "YES!" The point is to use the proper terms to describe the movements at the various joints. The thing I find funny is that they say the second exam, not the first. I know I had just had surgery on my foot, had food poisoning, and didn't have much time or energy to study so I wasn't too upset about getting a "c", but I usually get "a's" so I wasn't too happy either. The other day in class, the teacher accidentally projected the grades from his computer up to the wall. I was stunned to realize that of all the grades that were up on the wall, only 3 got better than "f". That combined with this question in the book makes me think that it is very hard for anyone to do really well on their first anatomy exam. I see that as a hopeful thing that it will get easier now that I know how much studying is involved in this class, definately way more than any other class I have ever taken before. I hope you all take it in the same light and don't get discouraged if you didn't do as well as you had hoped on your first tests either. I figured you might feel the same way from reading some of your posts.
