   “My A&P Place” (available through
    http://www.mariebmap.com) includes

  supplement. You may want to read through the
  appropriate sections before coming to class.

          Getting Started in A&P II
Given the following, list at least 3 things from general
biology and at least 5 from A&P I that you should
know to succeed in A&P II
           A&P I topics                  A&P II topics
   anatomical terms             cardiovascular system
   histology                    resistance to disease
   integumentary system         respiratory system
   nervous system               digestive system
     – electrophysiology         nutrition and thermo-
     – brain                      regulation
     – ANS                       urinary system
   endocrine system             fluid and electrolyte balance
   muscular system               and acid/base balance
   skeletal system              reproductive system
        Suggestions for Success
 See “Tips for Success in A&P” on the
  web
 Come prepared to learn
    – bring supplies (pen/pencil, paper, lecture
      supplement, highlighters), textbook
   Make flashcards for terms – this is
    especially helpful for spelling (Yes, I do
    take off for spelling on lab exams. Check
    with your lab instructor if you have
    someone else)
         Suggestions for Success
   Form a study group (two – or more – heads really are
    better than one)
     – take turns “playing teacher” and explain concepts
       to each other
     – quiz each other
     – the more active you are in your group, the more you
       will benefit
   Do not try to memorize the textbook or the
    notes
    – Look over the supplement and read through the
      text before coming to class
    – You need to know AND understand terms and
      concepts included in the supplements
        Suggestions for Success
   Spring office hours:
    – Monday and Wednesday 4:30-5:15 PM
    – Tuesday and Thursday 3:30-4:30 PM
    – Wednesday 7:00-7:30 PM

 I’m here to help you learn, please seek
  help if you’re having trouble
 The real work is up to you.
