I posted a few days ago about an issue I had with an exam I took for A&P 2. I ended up getting a low B. I don't agree at all with the format of the last test, although I have accepted it. I have trouble seeing diagrams on the lab tests, the arrows are often pointed to almost 2 different structures. I don't think he thinks it does. I have a feeling this will affect my grade. I do study, and I can say that I have an idea how the next exam will go.
It is too late to drop, should I settle for B? I am not too confident in getting and 'A' in this class. I got an A in A&P 1, from what I understand I finished either #1 or #2 in the class out of 50. There was a curve in my first class, not this one.
I don't want to cause problems, but I am motivated to do as best I can. I am a little bored in the lectures and I find myself wanted to leave the lecture. I don't want to talk to the professor because I feel that this far, it is not going to change.
A professor I watch is Professor Fink on You Tube. He has 30 years of experience and really teaches well.
CARDIAC PHYSIOLOGY; PART 1 by Professor Fink.wmv - YouTube
If you get a professor you don't see eye to eye with, your grade can suffer. Should I stick it out?
Any advice would be appreciated

Thirty years and not much changes.
My nursing class started with a cohort of 44 students of which 6 were men/boys. Out of those 6, 3 went on to graduation. A minority attrition rate of 50%.
One clinical instructor I had was ex-army and a bleach blond nut from hell who was fond of scratching her side boob through her polyester brazier making a kind of sandpaper against a blackboard grating noise.
This I found peculiar. Especially during her haranguing post-clinical, personally directed critiques of the students; which seemed to be more concerned with instilling the fear of failure and the exertion of dominance, than anything that even remotely had to do with the benevolent imparting of knowledge.
Ironically enough, many of these heartless castigations centered on "unprofessionalism." (scratch,scratch,scratch)
So what do most students who find themselves in a bad situation like this do? The age-old tact and prime directive is to survive and try to stay below the radar hoping to be just another innocuous drone and get through it.
But then as now it seems so unnecessary. Especially if you are or were a quiet, conscientious male of the species student who was raised to respect women and those entrusted, mostly women in this case, with educating the next generation of caregivers.
OP: Are you such a student?
