No dummy!

There are many books out there that may help you learn your A&P faster and easier.

Each student has their own unique learning style, lifestyle, and particular likes and dislikes . . . so it's a good thing there are a lot of options to choose from!

I'll be sharing a lot of my favorites on this blog, of course.

The first one out of the chute is not only a good support for many A&P students . . . the authors actually recommend my Lion Den website as one of the best online sources of help. So that tells me these authors must be absolutely brilliant! Or something like that . . .

See their their recommendation of the Lion Den. You may have to scroll to Chapter 18, p. 287 to find it.

So don't be a dummy, check it out!

Besides learning tips, it has a lot of exercises that help you grasp the material. So if you can't think of a good way to practice what you know (and my friends in the circus will tell you . . . practice is the only thing that works) this book may be just what you need.

Anyway, if you click on the link below (go to The A&P Student blog if the link does not appear in your feed or newsletter . . . or use the text link above) and click on "Look inside" to browse the workbook to see if it's for you.

Between terms

Many of you are now relishing your "time off" between last term and the next one.

Some of you are waiting for your A&P 2 course to start and some are getting ready for their A&P 1 course.

Simply taking time to relax and enjoy your friends and family is a good thing. It's one of the key study tips that I give my own students . . . have fun when you can!

If you've survived A&P 1, or heard from someone who has, then you know that it's also not a bad idea to start to get ready for the new semester. While you have the time, you might want to get yourself organized so that you can hit the road running when your new course starts.

One thing you can start with is learning about about your own learning style. Do you learn best by reading . . . or by listening . . . or by doing . . . . or by seeing? Knowing which strategies work best for you will help you get started on the right track when things do crank up.

How do you do that? It's easy! Just visit Learning Styles in the Lion Den section on study tips and tools. There, you'll learn how to figure out what your learning styles are and how to use that knowledge as you begin your new course.
