Did you know that Clark College Career Services offers FREE Student Success Workshops on a variety of topics, including note-taking for college success, reading for college success, memory strategies, test anxiety, stress management, procrastination, creating a support system in college, and more? Click here for more info, including a link to the workshop schedule for Winter Quarter 2017...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.
FREE science- and biology-specific tutoring (including for BIOL& 241!) is offered in BHL 101/102. Their phone number is 360.992.2694, and click here for the schedule.
As you've probably heard, the A&P sequence is tough, 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.
Here's an article that references a research study about a simple writing exercise to help reduce test anxiety.

Biology 241 Course Materials from Winter 2016 -- Note: if you are taking my BIOL& 241 course this winter (2017), feel free to preview these but do not print them, as I will be editing them during the quarter and some content and/or organization may change. I'll have the "new and improved" versions of my notes posted in the "Biology 241 Course Materials for Winter 2017" section of this website (scroll up) by the night before each lecture at the latest, and most often sooner.
