Wed. 6/19/13 -- To my Spring quarter BIOL& 251 students: Very nice job overall on the Final Exam, folks: the average was 156/200 (78.0%)! Find your score and your final overall course grade and percentage (after the curve was applied) here.
Remember, your graded Final Exam will not be returned to you, but you will be welcome to come to my office to view and/or discuss it next quarter.
If you did NOT earn at least a C grade in BIOL& 251,
then you did not meet the prerequisite for BIOL& 252, and if you've already
registered for BIOL& 252 this summer and BIOL& 253 this fall, I suggest you drop
those classes soon so that you do not get charged for them (and if you've
already paid for them, so that you can get a full refund). BIOL& 251 is
offered again here at
If you earned at least a C grade in BIOL& 251 and are registered for my BIOL& 252 class this summer, I strongly encourage you to take at least a little bit of time for yourself and your family and not think TOO much about A&P for a little while during this break between quarters. If you just can't wait to get going again, or when you're ready to start preparing for 252, check back to this site later this week to check out the 252 syllabus, lab manual, and some other updated course materials that will be posted by then. If you are anxious to get started even earlier than that, you may begin your Martini et al. readings (we're going to be studying Chapters 12-18, 28, and 29, in that order), and you can also preview the archived 252 notes from Summer 2012 at the bottom of this website.
I will be out of town with limited internet access from June 23-30, so please be patient for a reply if you try to get in touch with me during that time.
Thank you again for all of your hard work this past quarter, and let me know if you have any further questions or concerns!

As you keep hearing, this is a tough course, and it requires a lot of outside-of-class study time and effort in order for you to give yourself the best chance to excel. A while back, I asked some of my best A&P students to tell me what they did to help them score well on the lecture exams. Here's what they said.
Did you know that Clark's Career Services offers Student Success Workshops on a variety of topics, including time management, stress management, academic success resources, reading for college success, and test-taking skills? Click here for their workshop schedule for Spring 2013......and if the workshop time you're interested in has already occurred, occurs too late in the quarter to be of any help to you for this quarter, or conflicts with your schedule, contact them to see if you can still at least get the information that they offer on each topic.
