I did use the Monkey one.

A&P is tough for some, really good suggestions here, sorry I don't have anything more to add.

I prayed a lot..lol.. and did study groups.

We were allowed to go into the Lab room and pull out all of the bones, muscles etc... we did this off hours with partners, it helped a lot if you are able to do that. :)

I had a hard-er time remembering which bones were which initally- I kept switching them around. So, I actually wrote them in position on my hubby in ink pen! I still can close my eyes and see it!

i've found - the more you review it the longer you remember it - i think in A&P they called it building a "Complex Reverberating Circuit" (ummmm...long term memory)

Also, I am finding out now that when you learn about examining each system you get a review.

as for diagnoses and care plans and whatnot, i dunno i think you probably get better and better w/ dilligence and time...

maybe the other wonderful folks on here will have some pointers:D

Right. I find that coming at the same information from different angles helps you retain it. You learn it once in A&P and once in nursing assessment and once in patho and once in making careplans... and it all fits together.

Brilliant! I could never remember which of the O's was for what. I'm an RN now so I don't have to remember (just look it up when I need it) but that's great :)

One thing I found useful for retaining slabs of information was putting things to music, where the rhythm prompted me to remember what came next, and tricks to differentiate between different but similar words (eg dysphaSia is speech, dysphaGia is gag).
