I'm starting nursing school in the fall and need to review Anatomy & Physiology since I took it last summer and think I've lost a lot of it. I'm having such a hard time motivating myself though. I loved the classes when I took them and read the book and studied, but now when I pick up my book my eyes cross after reading a few paragraphs.
My plan was to reread stuff from A&P II which I feel weaker on, review my notes from the classes and go through my flash cards, but I think I need another method. Any ideas or suggestions?

Have you tried taking to people you took the class with? Maybe you could set up a study group ... I know personally that studying in groups helps a lot of people refresh their mind. Personally, I'm an individual studier and I love love love making fun games and even using coloring books. I know it sounds corny, but the other day I was browsing Amazon
and saw an A&P coloring book! I wanted to buy it for my A&P class, but I don't have the money yet. Anyway, I would recommend maybe reviewing your notes for 30 minutes (even though it's boring) take a 30 minute break... and split up the time. It's been proven if you split up times between reviewing things you remember them better. Also, STUDY BEFORE YOU GO TO BED- it sticks in your mind better since you think about it in your sleep!
