Lots of reading today

I actually got a decent amount of sleep last night, so the material covered in the Cardio A&P lecture today made sense. Sleep is good. Sleep makes me less stupid. Being less stupid is a good thing.

Today is only the third day of school and I'm already starting to feel like I'm falling behind. Today I'm trying to catch up on my reading.
  • For my Respiratory A&P course, I need to read pgs. 831-838 of Marieb, pgs. 7-23 of Des Jardins and pgs. 174-180 of Egan's.
  • For my General A&P course, I need to read chapter 1&2 of Marieb and Module 1&2 of the course module package that the school self published.
  • For my Cardio A&P course I need to read chapter 18 of Marieb and Chapter 5 of Des Jardins.
Today I overheard my Cardio A&P Professor mention something about previous students "having breakdowns". I'm not exactly sure what she meant by that and I've decided that I don't really want to know.


  1. He's just trying to scare you with the breakdowns! You'll be okay!

  2. What? If you're exciting about learning all there is to know, then it will be a breeze.

  3. Where I went to school we never even needed RT books. That was nice.

  4. No books? I don't quite understand how that could be possible.

  5. It's true. Our teachers did not lecture out of a book. The books
    were basically just for reference as they should be. And, because the lectures were so good, I never really needed the books except for a few times.

    If I ever were to do it again, I wouldn't have spent all that money on books.

  6. That's academic Heresy. How can you be "educated" without carrying around half your weight in textbooks? :-)

    It sounds like you had some really good and hard working faculty, when you went to school.
