I never feel as dumb as I do when I study...

  1. After 20 years of being a nurse...I never feel as dumb as I do when I'm trying to study this damn A&P....I get so freaked out with the overwhelming amount of stuff to learn it's like my brain freezes up and I can't absorb the information...I passed the Microbiology Exam, but this will be the second round with the A&P exam and I have myself totally stresed out about it...Ok, that's all I wanted to say....just that I feel so STUPID !! aaggghhhh.

    I took A&P 13 years ago. I will soon have to take it again so I can sympathize with you. Our teacher used male pin-up models to teach us the muscles. Even in our test she would put pins in the muscle she wanted us to identfy. Will make it more interesting.:chuckle

    I've heard the "incredibly easy" series is really good.

    I look over notes from the last class, and I don't even remember the instructor talking about it....much less try to understand it!

    It will all come together.

    There is an "incredibly easy" text on A&P I love those books I have 5 now and they really help
