Take A&P 1& 2 at mini terms 8 weeks each, or take full term A&P lab 1 only in 16 weeks and wing it on TEAS?

Posted

Title. Im in a time crunch. The deadline is May 1st of next year to enter in August 2021.

I have the momentrix TEAS secret book and pocket prep app.

Would you take both A&P's at 8 weeks each, or A&P full term and take the TEAS based off of A&P 1 only?

My school requires a 60.

I just took the TEAS, only having taken all my Chemistry’s and A&P 1 and I got an advanced grade on my TEAS 85% on the first try.

I studied using the momentrix book and the ATI’s manual and crash course. I honestly don’t believe you need A&P 2 if you Truly study the other body systems and know how they function.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask, I hoped that helped.

Hello, thank you for responding.

How long did you study for? What was your technique? Did you see A&P questions you didn't see in your class but saw in the book? If you were me would you take the 16 week course instead? Ty

I studied for one month. I read through each body system and wrote specific questions instead of notes and answered them with quizlet. That’s how I study, questions and answers, like flash cards and review them daily until I could tell say what each system does and all the functioning parts to it. And everything you honestly need to know is in the book. The questions are very broad. But if I were you I would take the 16 week course and just study the body systems you don’t cover in class.

I took both A&Ps in 6-week Summer sessions and loved it. It's full time but if you are dedicated, I would recommend the 8 week classes. That being said, you should still be able to get a 60 on the TEAS without having taken both if you are studying.

If you think you can handle doing both portions of A&P in the shorter terms (I did and honestly preferred it this way) then I would do that for sure. I know my TEAS really focused on kidneys (they're all different) and we didn't do that until A&P II. Either way, the stronger foundation you have for the TEAS, the better you'll do.
