I have tried a number of things and you just have to know what works for you and what doesn't. When I took A&P the first time I tried real hard to keep up in the note taking department. She went so fast it was almost as bad as an auctioneer!! So the next semester, when I had to retake it, I bought a small recorder for the notes I missed and wrote my notes in alternating red and blue ink. Somehow this worked for me and I made a very high B, like 3 points away from an A.
Also flashcards have been a great help in memorizing stuff in pharmacology. And personally I never had the time to sit and color all the pages in the coloring book, so it was a waste of money for me.
If you have Marieb or Hole there are great sites with quizes and puzzles on them.

I am in the same boot with you, sister!! Taking A&P after about 8 years. I decided it was best to retake it for the brush-up. I am also trying to raise my GPA up and get into the nursing class for Fall 2003. Good Luck!!

then went on from their (dont remember the order)
senes (hearing,vsion ect)
& thier was way more stuff buy I forgot the categories
The thing that helped my w/ it was to actually look at the stuff over & over. Our school has a computer lab and i was on the coputers ALL the time. Our teacher made students who wanted to get an A make a powerpoint study guide which was set up like a computerized flashcard for lab stuff (a pic comes up and says what is this, you click and it gives the answer ect). I would really recommend quizing yourself over the material.
On bones it really helps to touch them and er play with them to help you remember all the names.
I studed a lot for that class but I realy enjoyed it and got an A (I took an 8 unit class). Hope you have fun and do well

It seems that sometimes I open my mouth and insert my foot and end up biting my own toes off. Maybe I need to slap myself.
My only excuse (and it is pretty lame) is that I was tired and when I read the part in your post about learning anatomy from a coloring book, I only thought about the coloring book A Visit With My Doctor that I bought for my son when he was three.
I had no idea that some were actually using coloring books as a teaching aid. When I was in college I took a course in Human Anatomy and a separate course in Animal Physiology.
Please accept my humble apology and I wish you the best in your professional endeavors.
