Tips and Tricks

The most important thing to remember is "structure and function."

Ask yourself:

  1. What does it look like?
  2. What does it do?
  3. How are 1. and 2. related? How does the way it look help what it does and vice versa?

Flashcards: They're portable study guides! Most of A&P is learning the vocabulary and flashcards are a great way to learn.
