    Congratulations to everyone on their great scores.:hatparty:

    I have something to celebrate too. I got a 40/40, 100% on my last test on blood vessels & the lymphatic system. Yeah!!! :hatparty:

    And I was so down after I did poorly on my last test. I'm still shooting for that A.

    Congrats on the awesome grade...I get the results back on my lympathic/respiratory exam and my first practical tonight...

    I was kind of slacking on my studying, but I feel like I did OK (I think, I hope)...

    Congrats on a great grade!

    I got my take home test result: 95% and I am proud of it, because, I was tempted to open the book once, I didn't

    I am getting my test results from test 2 & 3 back on Monday and will let you know how that went I have 5 weeks left

    Good luck and keep it up :hatparty:

    OK I got my practical back. 94%.

    I found something out though and it kinda bothers me.

    My friend takes the same lab as me on Mon/Wed. I take mine on Tues/Thurs ..but our grades are posted online via webct.

    Anywhooooooooooooooooooooo.....her class was given 5 extra credit points for no reason. He just told them he thought they " needed it". MY class was not given 5 extra credit points. I guess he felt we didn't " need it" or whatever. Thing is no one in my class ( except me) knows about the Mon/Wed extra credit. I know people in my section who scored C's, etc. They could use an extra 5 pts too.

    Has anyone ever had any experience w/ a prof. who gave 1 section extra credit ( for no reason- as in there weren't any extra credit questions) and not done the same for another? I've never ran into this before. I still have an A so grade-wise it's not going to affect me...but I guess I just find this off. Then again, life's not fair.

    Any thoughts?
    Why not try asking the teacher himself/herself about it? Hearsay is just that, I would ask the professor myself.

    It's not hearsay - it's true. The Mon/Wed class got an extra 5 credit points added to their grade ( she had a 72.2 but got a 77.2- I've seen her test with my own eyeballs..it says right on there +5 ec and she said her entire class got it). My section ( Tues/Thurs) was not given additional points. I scored a 94- and stayed a 94. Another classmate scored an 86 and stayed an 86. Yet another got a 71 and stayed a 71....yadda yadda the list goes on

    As for asking the professor- *I* don't really care for myself,personally. I just thought it was odd-. It *could* have helped other people in my section, though- they just don't know about it.- so I guess it bothers me that I don't feel they were given the same treatment. An extra 5 points isn't going to do much to my score..

    Well last night I got my lympathic/repiratory exam grade, 77% I guess I feel happy with that since several people have now dropped the class after getting their results.

    I was pretty happy to find I got an 81% on the lab practical though...At this point I think I am averaging a high B in the class overall.

    Not bad for someone that has been slacking for the last two weeks. This is suppose to be my summer off... :chuckle

    Y'all will probably be finished before I start! lol

    My A&P 2 class starts July 12th. I am ready for it. (ready to get MicroSux over with) lol

    Good luck to you all!

    AND....for those starting on/around the 12th....I'll be here! lol

    I have to tell you Fun2Care I have been reading the Micro thread and it has played up to my greatest fears ..that I will loathe the class. LOL. Good thing is the professor I have for Micro has been teaching it for 30 years and from what I have heard is an " amazing" teacher. We don't even have a book. He has his own program and he just gives us supplements. I have already looked over the first 2 labs and am " uuugghh". I think i will REALLY miss A+P. I have loved A+P. I am NOT looking forward to Micro.

    I just got my case study assignment. I've been anxious about it simply from fear of the unknown. I don't get it! No, actually I DO get it and that's what I don't understand. It's too darned easy. I just read the information given and instantly knew it was endometriosis. Not much of a challenge there. I'm a little spooked that it was TOO easy, but there's no mistaking the diagnosis. This is 10% of our final grade. Maybe it's meant to be some easy points. There's no other opportunities for freebies in this class. I hope that's the case because ALOT of my classmates need all the help they can get just to pass! (I'd feel better with a little cushion for my A also.)

    1 more week to go. 5 days of class. 2 more tests. 120 questions to answer and I'll be done with A&P II!!!!

    Wait wait. Argh. Taking A&P II lab during SSII. Oh well.

    land64shark so do you mean you wre given a case study and had to name the disease/disorder/etc?

    in A+P I we had to write a case study on any disease/disorder of the systems we had talked about. I chose Keratosis Pilaris ( Integumentary) because my son has it.

    In A+P II we have to do the same thing. I think I will do mine on ovarian cysts because I have them.

    Yes, that's what we have to do. Aside from diagnosing the medical problem, we have to explain the medical condition (in this case endometriosis). We have to justify the prescribed medication (danazol) and give reasons why oral contraceptives could also have been prescribed instead. All in all, it just seems too easy for 10% of our final grade. But like I said, there's no other oportunities for freebies in this class because all tests are graded automatically and immediately online (except the final).

    Speaking of finals, do any of you guys get to find out exactly how you did on your finals? I just receive the total final grade. Hmm... maybe the prof can throw in a few freebies on it if they want to and we'll never know.
