When you are learning the names of anything in anatomy, it will help you to remember it by looking at a picture of it at the same time. Anatomy is all about structure, and it will make more sense if you can see it. Also, don't try to be a perfectionist or you might get behind. Learn it well, yes, but try to see the big picture of how the structures work together and you will be well off.

I am taking AP 1 now and also took it previously (and passed) in a massage program. The way we learned in massage school was drawing bones/muscles on each other. It helped A LOT to be able to see the bone and muscle and where they attach to. Also theres a really cool Anatomy coloring book that is helpful when beginning to learn bones and muscles.

At my school we have A&P 1&2 in one class worth 6 credits. Is that going to be a lot harder than taking two semesters?

Specializes in LTC.

Take photos of what you will tested on, get plastic sheets and dry erase markers, lay the plastic sheets over printed pictures and label away. It works!!!

I like your idea SO much better!! We just used lotion and grease pencils. :)

Go to your schools anatomy lab or science lab frequently! I spent about 4 hours a week there ( outside of class) to study the different models. It really helped me do well on my lab practicals.
