Anatomy and Chem this Fall...who else?

  1. Anyone else taking Chem and Anatomy together this fall? I'm ready to hammer the science pre-req's out this year, so I'll only be taking those two classes and then then just Physiology and Micro in the Spring.

    Any study plans or tips?

    I am taking AP2 and Organic Chem as well. I think I am going to get the Org. Chem for Dummies book. The A&P for Dummies book was great and helped me understand some of the topics that the professor covered very quickly.

    Hi,
    I am taking Anatomy001 and Chem051 this fall as well, then Physio and Micro for spring. Are you taking it at LACCD?

    Goodluck to both of us.

    I will be taking A&P I and Ethics in the Fall and A&P II and basic chemistry in the Spring. I plan on taking Micro in the Summer. I'm nervous! Oh, and I really hope they offer Micro in the Summer or I'll be behind.

    I am taking A&P I and need to take a chemistry in the fall. I had signed up for Principles of General Chem and Biochemistry but just found out one of the programs I want to apply to requires a chemistry lab, and the principles class doesn't have it.

    Any thoughts on organic v inorganic chemistry? I've never taken a chemistry class so am nervous. Have heard organic is much harder. Any thoughts?

    I've only taking general chem but I found that to be very easy. Organic Chem I hear is a whole different story because it focuses more on bonding between atoms and such.

    Study, study, study!!! I've taken both AP I and II. Got A's in both. It's a lot of reading. If you don't understand the chapter read it again. What helped me is I took notes as I read. I studied a lot. The urinary, respiratory, and digestive systems were my favorite. Not too crazy about the nervous system, but that's just me. Anyway, good luck to you, I'm sure you'll do fine.

    P.S. I'm taking Micro in the Fall and then I'm applying to the program!!!

    I am going to be taking API and Organic/Biochem in the Fall. I have taken both courses before (with an B and a C in them respectively). The courses are very interesting and there is no cutting corners with the material. This is not like Gen Bio.... you might be able to BS your way through a test...not so for these courses. Besides if you don't understand the human body and how it works normally how can you understand pathophysiology (the study of abnormal activities in the body). Samething when it goes to biochem..... important stuff is learnt.

    As prenursing students we just tend to say well we are just trying to get into a program but AP and the Orgo/Biochem are really the most important sciences in the the program. Besides it isbest to get good study habits.....we are gonna need it becasue it is notlikethe course work is gonna get easier becasue after this is CLINICALS....
    If possible try tojust go through certain topics that are introduced in AP(use the textbook forthose who bought the book already).
    Go through:
    1) the different directional planes and cavities of the human body
    2) just read about the intergumentary system

    I know alot of people from different schools who took AP and they were blindsided by the sheer anount of reading for the first test. It is nice to be ahead of the curve.

    Good luck.

    I'm not taking them in the fall, but rather Winter (January-March) at my college. 83 Then A&P2 with Microbiology, and then A&P3 with Nutrition. I apply next October. I really have no choice but to do them this way, as I have to stay full time to keep my financial aid. I'm looking into getting an A&P coloring book or flashcards to get ahead - I'm taking a human biology course this fall (A&P pre-req) so it might help with that, too.

    Best of luck to all of us!
