    Well I have an a&p exam coming up and I'm [email protected] myself! I've not done as much revision as should of and I'm really angry at myself. I'm going to try and get a good few hours in a per night for the next 3 nights. But I feel like I've set myself up to fail already by not revising weeks ahead. Has anyone any good revision tips?

    Make up songs is my only tip. I am rubbish at revision, but some of my GCSE classmates made up songs and I can still remember them. (15 years later)

    Now I have the alveoli song in my head.

    Try roughly drawing the systems, if you can't draw an accurate heart with the right vessels and valves and describe the flow of blood, read a book or watch a video and revise it until you can. Same goes for GI system, check that you can name all of the parts of the bowel. Function of the kidney is an important one too which they like to ask about. Obviously don't bother drawing a whole skeleton, but there are plenty of A&P labelling games online which I found pretty useful, and plenty of youtube videos which quickly describe the structure and function of the major systems.

    I recently completed the A&P exam (May 16th). I revised for a week, using these two books, and lecture material etc.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nurses-Your...%26+physiology

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nurses-Test...athophysiology

    They are both excellent, so much so that i achieved 95% in the exam.

    Good luck

    Air goes in and out, blood goes round and round. Any deviation in this is a problem.

    a lot of people found the Ross and Wilson colouring book quite helpful, but it depends on how you learn. I found going through notes and lecture slides revising key points was the best way for me to revise.
