Chalk Talk: Studying for an Anatomy Class
Numerous students have reported the difficulty they experience when studying for anatomy classes. There are 26 bones, 34 muscles, and 123 ligaments in the human hand alone. Memorizing these and other structures in the body can be time-consuming and require a lot of brain power. There are some tips that can help this process, however. The first tip is that you should set aside 810 hours per week outside of class to study. Although there are classes in which you may need less preparation time when it comes to assignments and tests, anatomy is not one of them. The second tip is an often repeated one: using flashcards can be a great help. Since anatomy classes usually require more memorization and less understanding of concepts, simple repetition can be the difference between receiving an A or B. Diagrams are another great study tool. If you enjoy drawing, you can make these as detailed as you like or you can simply print or copy pages from your textbook or websites.
