Im just curious as to what the layout of your class and labs were like?
Its really frustrating in lab being handed a list with 120 terms muscle, origin, insertion and action and then have 1 week to get it right.
Its been humbling ( and I guarantee I had more of a base than anyone) my frustration is studying (more like just memorizing ) without having any practical application in class, book or anything.
Its hard to really visualize those insertions and origins despite my best efforts? To me it feels like a really poor design, but then I thought maybe its just me. ?
Get Netter’s Anatomy Flash Cards. They have origin, insertion, action, and innervation. They worked for me in undergrad and they’re working for me in PT grad school.
And always remember: Some Lovers Try Positions That They Can’t Handle
I have the Netters and used them extensively. My only gripe with them is that they are sorted by body part and areas. I would have preferred they were sorted by system, since that’s how most A/P students learn it.
I also have a handful of bookmarked websites that I used. I always liked websites that use online testing.
Seriously, like others have said, just study some every day, but don’t overload yourself. Study in a couple 20-30 minutes burst each day.
