Wondering What Your...

  1. Hey guys,
    I am trying to get a good feel for what to expect out of A&P. I especially am curious as to what type of grade most of you got? Are A's common, b's...c's... So, let's here it...

    I squeaked by with an A but most of my classmates made Cs. The lab grade is averaged in with the lecture grade and those darn cat muscles just about did everyone in! Good luck. Next semester I have the physiology part of the A & P course. Heard that's tougher!

    there were 2 A's in my class (I was one of them!!! Yeah)
    Several failed but most were in the B-C range

    A+ first semester, top student in the class. Did the second semester independent study (web course) with the same instructor as he was semi-retiring and no longer available to teach in person and got an A-. It was a lot harder doing it on my own, I will say that.

    Hi! To me, A&P was the hardest class I took this semester. I go for the second semester this Spring. I really did enjoy it though and received an A.
    If you put a lot of effort into the studying and have a professor that cares, you'll do fine!

    Ummmmmmmm...an A is totally do-able...I had an A first semester but decided second semester that my son was more important than an A so I got a B...don't stress yourself out...your sanity is more important...there is nothing wrong with a B...or a C even...heck - it's all you need to pass!

    Best of luck!

    I got A's in A & P I and II I studied hard and kicked butt
    There were no more than 5 A's in both classes some B's lots of C's and a handful flunked out...

    Like Gayle (also my classmate ) said, an A is totally doable IF you put in the work and effort. I got an A, and I don't think anyone who made it through the whole semester got less than a C. That said, about half our class also dropped out before the end because they weren't prepared...

    I got an A first semester and a B the second. The bones and muscles were the hardest parts. I used a ton of notecards and studied the diagrams until my eyes threatened to pop out of my head.

    Good luck! An A is certainly possible if you study study study!

    Don't worry to much about other student's marks if you pass that is all that is really required.

    you would be suprized at the number of people who don't pass

    I got A in A&P1 B for the lab and B for A&PII and A for the lab. You can do it, it all depends on your professor. My professor lectured at a very high speed.

    I got A's both "semesters". I took the whole year in 8 weeks. 4 weeks each semester. First one, I got 99% and second, I got 98%. I also took another class, worked full time and was/am a mother.

    So...yes. Anything is possible. If you, like I did, need these classes as part of the prereqs before you are even allowed to apply for the program, then do whatever you can to get an "A". But, if like so many other programs out there, you don't take A&P until you are already in the program then follow the above said advice. B's and C's aren't bad --- all you need to do is pass.

    Good luck.
