I took A&P 1 thirteen years ago and made a D in the class. A year later I took it again and made a C.
I am currently going back to school, and am in A&P 1 yet again. I have made all A's, actally the highest grades on every test and set the curves. (Which means I made 100's in all the tests so far.)
I'm not saying this to brag, but saying even a change of study habits, motivation, whatever may be needed to pass it.
I study almost all day. I took digital photos of all lab stuff, printed them out to study, and made powerpoint quizzes for the muscles. I bought a mini skeleton on ebay to help myself learn the bones. I made flashcards. I looked up different images online to see different views of stuff. I made myself go, not only an extra mile, but an extra 5 miles to make sure I get an A in this class.
It is hard because there is so much to learn. The muscle tissue and nervous tissue seemed to be the hardest.
If you decide to stick it out, my website is www.nursingjourney.com
. I have all my lab pics, quizzes, etc. on there. Maybe they will help you. If your school has a science resource room, use it. If you college offers free tutors, use them. If your school offers open lab time, go to all that you can.
Your determination could possibly get you to pass this class, even with failing the first test. How many test do you have? Does the nursing school you want to attend require a certain grade in this class, does it go by GPA for admittance?
You have to decide what you need to do. When is your drop date? Will you have another test before your drop date?
