    I had my first and only meeting of A&P I on Monday. I had to take it online, as the live section filled up first, but apparently it's exactly the same class. He videoed all of his lectures a couple of semesters ago, so we watch them on the computer. That's actually kind of neat - no need to invest in a tape recorder yet, and you can stop and rewind as you go if you miss something. What worried me is that there is no lab. We do a "virtual lab" which I think means memorizing diagrams. We had cadavers at my old school (lost in Katrina), and I figured every school would make you disssect something...well, enough procrastinating, I have my other class (Devel. Psych) later today, and must get back to studying while I'm not at work either.

    MMW37 - online lab as well?! WOW - that is something I've never heard of. Let me know how that goes - you know, a couple weeks in to this. Also very sorry to hear you're a victim of Katrina.

    In our lab, we covered like 5 chapters I think. Thankfully, most is a review for me but OYI!! would I feel overwhelmed if I was new to all of this. We are being quizzed on anatomical planes, etc., animal cell organelles, microscope parts & handling, mitosis. I think there's a bit more but I've got a headache and can't think right now.

    Another A&P-er checking in here.

    I had my first lab today, and thank goodness there were plenty of other adults in the room. In my other classes (math, chem) it's just me and a bunch of 20-year-olds. Both my teachers (lecture, lab) seem good so far.

    So far I'm feeling okay with the material. I am lucky in that I have 2 solid hours to study every morning.

    I'll be checking in here everyday. It's nice to have others to talk to.

    Hi all, I'm checking in this is my third time taking this class :smackingf yeah i know that is crazy. They say third times a charm, I sure hope so. I have decided to give myself more study time at least 3hrs a day. I work full time and go to school full time. If anyone can give me some advice on how to study this material it would be great. At the present time I have been going over the stuff we talked about in lecture and going ahead a little is this the right thing to do? Hope everyone does well this semester.

    a doctor for 40 years? man, he's gotta be pushing close to 70 by now...

    Well our quiz on Monday went well, I didn't miss any of the questions, but that was just on chapter one... but this chemistry chapter is a bit tougher. I liked chem in high school and college (10 years ago) but it seems so foreign now. Wow... A lot to study this weekend...

    Hey all,
    I am new to this post. I started anatomy1 this month. I have been working hours trying to find web sites to post for my class. This should be an easy assignment but it seems to be the push to the looney bin. The sites have to have date they were made or modified, and have the authors name. I am working on the first chapter with regions, directional terms, organization, homeostasis, et diagnostics. This class has lots of busy work. You can guess Im crazy because this one assignment is only worth 5pts. As we all know OCD means 5pts can make or break your grade. Hope everyone else is doing a little better than I.

    Well, I finished my first week of classes and had my first lab this morning. Let me just say that I am INCREDIBLY overwhelmed... I am full time, and my other classes are Elem. Algebra, Psychology of Adjustment, and Freshman English II. I also have a 9 yo, 8 yo, and a 5 yo. I know that I can do this, but I just feel guilty because of the amount of time that I will be taking away from my kids.... Anyone else in a similiar boat that can pass along any suggestions to help with time management and my feelings of guilt?
