    I am about to begin an access to nursing course and I am worried about the biology based modules. I have always been a humanities orientated student and I haven't studied any science for gone 8 years now.

    I have seen a few colouring books for anatomy. Has anybody found these useful? If so, are there any anybody specifically recommends? Did anybody else really struggle with the scienc-y bits? I will be applying for Mental Health Nursing and desperately want to do well on this access course.

    Thank you.

    there are lots of very good videos/lectures on YouTube. Khan Academy and Scott Ford (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hgc...3VLxG_ofUioIrO
    ) are good.

    I bought the Ross & Wilson A&P book and colouring book and looked at it twice over the whole course of my degree. I also bought this huge A&P Atlas book from a charity shop which I used a lot more. It really depends on your learning style, personally I found Ross and Wilson too simplistic, in that it didn't explain things enough and wasn't very detailed, and found the whole colouring book thing a bit patronising. However I know some people who worked through the whole thing and found it useful.*I would really recommend going into a Waterstones or waiting till you get into the library to have a look at a few and work out what suits you best.

    Don't forget about free resources online, if you have a good look you can find free A&P textbooks, as well as Youtube videos and worksheets. I found that the key to having a good understanding was using a mixture of different types of resources.*
