Will you give me some tips on how to improve my anatomy and physiology exams?

On my last question, #college #medicine I realized that I shouldn't give up on my dream of becoming a nurse. However, what strategies can I use to do a good performance in my exams? should I read my notes every 15 minutes per day? or maybe read them 40 minutes per day? or what kind of strategies would you recommend me? I really need help to improve my score in my exams.

Are they multiple choice tests? or what? I can give you a strategy to help with multiple choice, if that is what they are. Kim Igleheart

When it comes to studying A&P, I would 100% recommend using a whiteboard or other blank paper to sit down and try drawing different diagrams WITHOUT LOOKING AT YOUR NOTES. Drawing concept maps as well to see how all of the concepts connect inside the body! Going online and looking for practice tests and then quizzing yourself (again without looking at your notes) has also really helped me with studying A&P. Group study is also really helpful! Getting together with a group of friends and quizzing each other, asking each other questions, and - most importantly - teaching each other concepts by explaining it in your own words is also really helpful. I would recommend all of these pro-active strategies over reading or re-writing/copying down notes, as these are passive strategies and do not lend to committing the concepts to your long term memory. Also, (you probably already know this), but don't wait 'till the last second! Establish a routine where you quiz yourself for an hour every other day (or something like that). I hope this helps! Happy studying!

Okay, so, this is no substitution for studying, but it will likely bump your score up a few points (UNLESS they take off points for wrong answers!) I helped a friend study for his military entrance exams, after he failed them twice. The third time his score increased so much they re-tested, and fingerprinted him! And he still got the good score.

What I do is this. I accept that there will be something on the test that I don't know. Walking in the door, I have a random letter in my head. So, today, it is "C." If there is a question I don't know, I will mark it C, and move on. If I can narrow down the options, I will take the letter furthest to the left. (B..C. D - choose B). This reduces stress, and frees up more time for the other questions. If I run out of time before finishing the test, all unanswered questions will be marked C.

This works because out of every ten questions 2-3 will likely be C. or D. or A. or B. If you randomly assign letters, you stand to miss them all. Again, not a substitution for studying, but can give you a few extra points.

Let me know if you have any questions.

oh, and I like flashcards. you might try them.

Usually the choice with the longest answer is the one. Don’t second guess yourself ie when you’re reading the question and you have the answer in your head already and you see it, that’s the answer. Read on testwiseness. Learn from your mistakes. Don’t make the same mistake on the same question. Rodolfo Alora

It’s all about patterns. Read sample tests and look how the question are written. Don’t just memorize. Understand and feel the force. Release you anger and hate. Try using the anatomy or the physiology coloring book by Kappitt.

I suggest reviewing new content as soon as possible (maybe within the same day after class). Actively testing yourself through practice questions and labeling empty diagrams is also suggested. I also recommend asking a teacher assistant/course tutor or students who previously took the class for advice too!

p.s. Hey Leslie!

There are all kinds of anatomy games on the internet, have you tried them?
