Success in A&P is NOT guaranteed. It takes HARD work, and good study skills Study Skills: Come to class having already read the material. READ EVERY NIGHT Study a little at a time. Trust me, cramming does NOT work for A&P Go home and review the materials WITHIN 24 HOURS Help yourself by writing flash cards (there are great apps for that!), drawing diagrams, recopying notes or even making up songs (I’m ATP, yeah you know me!)
We will be using prefixes and suffixes over and over Learn the latin/greek roots well and life will be MUCH easier Ex: gluconeogenesis = gluco + neo + genesis Gluco: sugar like glucose Neo: new Genesis: to make, produce, or generate GLUCONEOGENESIS literally means “The production of new glucose molecules from non-sugar substances” See how easy that was??

Nutrients Oxygen Water Correct temperature and atmospheric pressure
The body’s ability to maintain a relatively stable internal environment 3 components: Receptor Control Center Effector Negative Feedback vs Positive Feedback
