    HELP HELP HELP!!! Ugg... anyone doing Organology Histology??? We have a quiz on Tuesday and I'm looking at all this stuff thinking.... It's all the same! I can't tell the muscularis mucosa from the lamina propria.... any tips on how to study this stuff?? Good luck to everyone! The semester is drawing near to an end.... whew.....

    For our Histology practical, our A&P teacher told us that we just had to marry the slides....the only way to learn them, was to look at them over and over and over again. Have you considered grabbing images from the internet and making flash cards of them?

    Best of luck!

    I think ANYTHING is possible. I can't imgine being in your situation with 5 kids however. I am single, work a full time day job and go to school for A&P Monday for 3 hours and then Wed Lab for 3 hours. I am also taking another class that I have on Tuesday's and Thursdays. It's definitely a beating!! I was told you just have to EAT, BREATH & SLEEP A&P. It's the only way to learn it. We also have opportunities to go into the labs a few days a week to study the models and slides. I would say if you have that at your school TAKE ADVANTAGE!! Also, most colleges offer tutoring programs. Go talk to them about what differences you can make in your study habits. If you don't have tutorers, talk to your professers. They may be able to stear you in the right direction. If all else fails....PRAY FOR A CURVE!!

    Good luck...and I will say a prayer for you!

    God Bless!

    Flash cards, flash cards, flash cards. Print out pictures, white/black out the names of structures/bones/etc, and glue them to index cards. Put functions, origin/insertion, whatever else on the back. Then do the same for all your key terms. I've made almost 1000 already just for A&P I, and I have an A in the course. My classmates might make fun of me for trying so hard, but it's working so far. You're not too far from a B, if you can get a couple As at the end of the semester you'll do alright. I agree, look into tutoring if it's the concepts you aren't getting. Also one C doesn't necessarily ruin your whole GPA. It depends how many overall credits you have. If your school emphasizes pre-nursing grades or if you don't have many extra credits, you may want to drop it if you don't think you can get it up...you just sound like you're close enough that you can do it. Good luck, hope it works out for you.

    i have to write a paper in my anatomy class, and any information or sites that you might know of that will help me with this would be great!
    i have to describe in chronological order, the anatomical structures (bones, joints, muscles, nerves) that are involved with these tasks and how they work together to accomplish your assignment movement. my movement is to reach out and turn the doorknob.

    Hi everyone,
    now that we are coming to a close how is everyone doing?

    We have this week off but I have a lot to study for. However I did manage to take my final exam already. we are given a boat load of work and a certain day to complete it by we have until December 8. I still have my Cat discetion to complete, muscle practacle, cadaver practical and an exam on 3 chapters reproduction and human development. I have a plan of finishing up my muscle stuff this week and I will try to go into school and take the muscle exams next week then just focus on cat and cadaver for our last weekend of school. Then the final day I will take the last unit exam. On top of that I will be working on my Chemistry class too I have an exam tuesday and then just the final to study for.

    Anyone going on to ap 102 this spring? I am taking that and micro or I am going to try anyway, so then I can be all done by the end of spring with my prereq.

    I am ready to be finished. This last test on action potetials wore my brain out.

    All we have left is our exam on the urinary and reproductive systems. I am taking it online, however, and my professor has yet to put half the lectures online. The powerpoints are there, but the lectures aren't...so I e-mailed him, and received a "I'll look into that over the weekend..." terse response. And now it's Monday, and he still hasn't fixed the website. Grrrrrr. It's just irritating, b/c I wanted to get a lot of it out of the way before Thanksgiving, and now it means I'll definitely have to spend some of next weekend studying. Oh well, and yes, I have the same guy for A&P II next semester. Good luck to everyone on their finals!

    OK guys, I'm just now coming up for air! It has been a long time since I posted. My prof. moves at a train wrecks pace. We finished muscles what seems like months ago. We are now in the special senses. For the moment I have an A! Yet, I still have 2 tests to go. On the bright side we do not have a cumilative final.
    I have never worked so hard in a class in my life. I already have a BA in education. A+P is the hardest class I have ever taken.

    Let's hold it together for a few more weeks! Good luck!
