    Well I've just spent the last 2 hours reading A & P made incredibly easy (reread the same chapter 3 times) and OMG it's finally coming to me. I'm still no closer to being able to label a cell but at least I now know some of the components and why they do what they do. A small victory.

    I feel like some an idiot in comparison to all those 18 year olds that just left year 12 Biology and to be honest it feels like most of the lecturers are based on what these people already know, just expanding on their knowledge. Sucks to be 36 without basic biology up my sleeve.

    I'm struggling with how much I will need to know to get through the exams.

    Hi all!

    I am now in the middle of my 3rd week and haven't been on here in a while because everything has just been nuts!

    Tuesdays and Thursdays I am up at 5:30am to be on the 6am bus and on Thursdays I don't get home until 8pm, so I am completely exhausted. I've already submitted an assessment and the second one is due next next Tuesday. Another two assessments are just beginning and then I'm also trying to start working on two essays that are coming up. Not to mention trying to keep up with the everyday content/readings/lectures etc. Oh, and I've apparently still got 4 children (who knew they didn't just disappear when study started? ) ... This is me >>

    I feel really overwhelmed, but I don't think I'm doing too bad. I am keeping on top of everything right now, so I guess as long as I don't let myself fall beind I should be ok (I hope!).

    This thread is pretty quiet now - does that mean everyone is studying hard?! I hope so

    Chrissy - How are you going with A+P now? I hope it's getting a little easier. We're just getting into cells and tissues and I don't remember anything from the unit I did last year, so it's back to square one for me and it's a bit of brain overload.

    jamoz- Although I'm complaining about how hard it is, I am really enjoying being there and learning. You will love it! The only advice I have is be prepared for the cost! That has shocked me actually. Text books will cost me almost $500 (I haven't even got them all yet), then you need a 'Skills Pack' which is your stehoscope etc, uniform, shoes, immunisations, stationery ... the list goes on! I wish I knew beforehand and had saved up some money. Also, if you don't have a laser printer - get one! So much printing to do every week it's ridiculous. Although you can do everything electronically, they don't mind, but I personally need paper copies or my little brain just gets too confused Hopefully the next year goes quickly for you and you can get started

    Hi girls, I also have not been on here for a while... I agree with Jade about the costs... Huge impact... My textbooks were over $700 plus uniforms plus shoes, nursing packs, and the constant toner for my poor printer. I definately have spent over $1000 so far.

    I have been really busy, but am coping well. I am very tired, but I think i will get used to it. I sat the practice BIOL119 exam the other day, and girls it' doesnt seem too bad. Also have done a couple of assignments, and I agree, you just need to stay on top of it all. I however, have no social life...lol I have my first field visit this weekend, and am soooo excited about that. I got my uniform, so will be posing shortly on facebook with that...lol The plan is to get my reflection done this weekend to hand in as well. So that should give me some breathing space for a couple of weeks...

    I hope you are all going well..

    Good luck with the BIOL exam next week...

    Wow Jade first I'd like to mention that you are doing extremely well to be keeping up with everything, esp with 4 kids!!! I only have 2 and it worries me about how I will cope! Thanks so much for the heads up on all the costs, may start that savings account lol! I'm surprised about all the assessments and essays that are due already, in week 3! I hope that as time goes on you will settle into it and it won't feel so exhausting! Well I hope that is what you will say !

    Have you found out if all lectures are compulsory to attend or if any can be viewed online? Or is it better to go to every lecture anyway? I also noticed you mentioned you studied some biology last year but have forgotten what you learnt. I was thinking I would do some A&P study this year, what do you think? I hope you don't mind me asking you some questions from time to time over the year (esp towards the end of the year when I start to get everything together). Your experience will be invaluable! Glad to hear you are enjoying it though, can't wait to hear more of your stories as the year goes on! Keep up the good work, its encouraging to hear it can be done even when you have young children !

    Hey Girls..

    Well everything has turned out for the best for me, i must say that even studying part time it is still very full on.. the A&P is a massive unit and that is what takes up at least 4 or 5 of my evenings studying. Im Feeling good about studying via distance now, and even though im still gutted im not doing Mid, i may even stick it out with nursing and then go to Mid once i have finished nursing and have that extra degree up my sleeve.. better pay too LOL But we will just see what happens.. i am also missing being on campus.. but this is working for me and my kids right now, so thats the main thing

    Im looking forward to my Two Res schools, in April, then it might feel more like being on campus .

    Anyways.. heads down bums up... hope everyone is coping ok..

    missing Bon and Ria lol hope you two are enjoying it all!!!

    some of those 18year old's have no idea even a tiny bit about pregnancy/birth ect thougth, so just general chit chat with them might be like talking in another language. YAY its finally sticking - I remember going over and over a&p, but it does eventally stay put. keep up the great work

    not sure what a field visit is - but have fun!!! it is so very expensive to be a uni student. My text books weren't too bad around $400 but I'm only doing 1 subject but got a few extra books, shirt 2 X $38 then just all the other stuff - printer cartridges, $ on printing ac at uni, books, pens, hightlighters, stapler, ect ect ect.......




    ME : I'm having so much fun. I went to clinic again last night and managed to recruit my lucky #6 coc women. She is due April so I'm very excited. Uni is going great, except I havn't got time for anything else. I'm home today - cancelled catching up with 3 different people because my house is a mess and I need to do washing or we won't have anything to wear tomorrow! I'm thinking about quitting work very soon. I've told them I will need to soon - probably in June,but I don't know that I can hang in there till then.
    Ok girls, on that note, I'd bette get bacl to the housework. I've managed to get one of the boys rooms tidy, walls washed, window cleaned ect 1 down lots to go.........

    have a great week

    I'm so happy that I can finally retain some of this A & P. I was beginning to think I would never get it. I'm spending the entire weekend studying for a Biology exam next Tuesday ( just gotta pass). I'm deliberately not going into lectures anymore. As they're recorded online it works better for me to sit at home typing up the points I need to remember and any pointers she gives. I can also stop and start her when I don't understand it. I think I'm finally finding a way of studying that works for me. (I say this before sitting the biology exam. lol)
