I've Drawn a Blank for Everything I Learned in A&P

I'm in my first semester of nursing school (Fundamentals) and it seems like I've forgotten everything I've learned in A&P. Is there anything that can help me? :facepalm:

Do you still have your A&P text book or notes from class you could pull out and skim through? I had to do that on a few topics when I started pathophysiology. Also for quick overview Khan Academy has a bunch of free, short (5-15 minutes) videos on a number of A&P topics.

Thank you! Unfortunately I sold my A&P book but I will look into Khan academy

I found that in my nursing classes, they reteach the material to you. Its hard to remember specific details if you haven't taken anatomy in a while, but as long as you understand the concepts, then you should be fine!

You might also try the school library for an A&P text book, if you don't still own one. I'd be surprised if you can't find a copy on reserve at the very least.

I got an A&P book from amazon for 10 dollars, find out what book your school uses and get get the older version. The information is usually the same, just different order, maybe more pictures

I suggest to relearn the physiology themes "big concepts" to understand the details. Professor Fink is a good teacher on youtube.
