Hi i'm new to the forum. I'm taking A&P 1 this semester. I'm a little nervous about it so if anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated!!!
Study, study, study and then study some more. Never get behind on anything, try not to miss any classes. Tape lectures. Make this class a priority, and eliminate as many distractors as possible from your life (example needless chatting with neighbors, friends that are not taking the class etc.) turn your phone off, get a" DON'T DISTURB" sign for your front door. Get all your doctors appt out of the way prior, and have your meds refilled. Get your car serviced. Forget about nice looking hair and nails for 16 weeks , get lots of rest, exercise regularly and eat enough high quality foods. DON"T diet while in this class! Get good study partners if available. Take advantage of the resources in your study lab at your biology department (couldn't have done it without it). Try to establish good rapport with your teacher, don't matter how "unapproachable" he/she seems to be.
You will be in seclusion for 16 weeks, with very little outside contact, remember it shall pass!
I don't mean to scare you but I am approaching the end of my A&P1 class and I have a very difficult professor + I have a learning disability from a recent illness. It's been tough, frustrating, I have cried and I wanted to quit. This class has been the ultimate challenge for me, others might not think that way though, it all depends on your teacher.
But it is possible to make an A. If I am lucky I will get an A, all depends on my final next week.......NEVER give up!
