  1. Wow, we don't even get to know how the rest of the class is doing in A&P. We don't get that information, and we don't get our tests and quizzes back so we can correct our mistakes either. I did very well on the first test, similar to your class, but there has been a significant dropoff since then. Now we're doing neuro stuff and the level of detail we're expected to remember is simply impossible. It might be that A&P is a weed-out class for the SLP program, and I might get weeded out. I'm trying to improve my GPA over my first BS, and I'll be extremely fortunate if I can somehow steal a B out of this class. That's not the "improvement" I needed.
  2. I sent you a PM. A&P with Bougie is a very heavy workload and very time consuming between reading, lectures, projects, essays, quizzes and tests. Having taken A&P might help you some, you can concentrate on the parts that you may not have covered in a lower division class, like innervation and some of the speech musculature perhaps. It all depends on how in depth you went into speech and swallowing-specific A&P. If it was general A&P it may not help you a great deal. This is all specific to speech and swallowing, so 99.9% of class is spent between the navel, the cranium and clavicles. I don't know anything about Barrow. A&P won't be a cakewalk anywhere, I'm afraid.
  3. You are taking 2 classes at BOTH MGH and ENMU during summer? You are superhuman. I am drowning and seeing my chances of success rapidly evaporate trying to take only 2 classes (mostly thanks to the Bougie class) and working part-time.
  4. Probably too late for this summer, if that's what you're asking. My summer session is past the halfway point already.
  5. How is MGH working out? I think Swift is good, though her tests and quizzes are hard at least she is a good instructor and is quick tyo respond to emails. A frustrating thing about ENMU online is you don't get your tests and quizzes back so you can correct what you got wrong. Maybe they do that other places too, I've only taken one online class before this and it wasn't this way. I guess this is to prevent sharing it with other students, which is an understandable concern. But we also have to be able to fix our errors and misunderstandings and this makes it a lot harder to do so.
  6. bumpapalooza. I fantasize about travelling SLP work
