Are you taking Anatomy & Physiology? If so, it is advised to find the best learning strategy to soak in as much information. So what I have put together below are some ways that are helping me to learn efficiently. Before I continue, I wanted to note that I am a very visual person that needs the information right in front of me.
My A and P class is setup into three classes per week: 2 lectures and 1 lab. I want to discuss a combination of both so you can get an idea of how both classes work.
1. Here are two of my flashcard sets, each set has two flashcards. One flashcard has a drawing labeled with numbers and the other has numbers with terms next to each.
2. Next is the bone memorizing portion of A & P. I am typing this blog currently in the 4th week. The biggest thing with memorizing is doing it over and over again, with breaks in between. So what I do is split the content up. I may study the shoulder bones, quiz myself without looking at my notes, take a break and then do another chunk.
Our objectives for lab.
3. Here is a list of all the specific things we need to know about the bones for this lab.
4. Here we did a sheet on labeling all of the main bones on the body. This is an overview more so.
5. Below are pages from an anatomy coloring book I got off Amazon. If you love to color and want extra practice, this is a go to! Here is a link: https://www.amazon.com/Anatomy-Coloring-Book-Wynn-Kapit-ebook/dp/B00YSL7JWE
The pink highlighted portions are the terms I need to know while the orange highlighted terms are key concepts like directional terms (anterior, superior, lateral, etc.) My mom told me to make a copy of each page before I colored them because if I wanted more practice I would have some blank sheets.
6. The last thing I wanted to add was the human skeleton with extra details that work best in understanding their placement. Also, there is nothing better then hands-on experience! You get the bigger picture and can better visualize why something is the way it is.
Thanks for reading my blog and stay tuned for my next post! Thanks! Bye, Bye!
