Questions to use when testing your knowledge of Anatomy & Physiology:


  • Where is this structure located in relation to other body structures?

  • What general category does this concept fit into?

  • What are some specific examples of this general category?

  • What is the technical terminology for this concept/process/structure?

  • What are the similarities and differences between the concepts or structures within this general category?

  • What initiates a particular process?

  • When this happens, what else happens? (What does each event in the sequence cause?)

  • What mechanisms are involved in these causes and effects? (How does it all work?)

  • Which of these 4 items functions in “x” way?

ADDITIONAL STUDY TIPS:



  • Be sure to clarify the material by reading other material, including websites such as Medline.com

  • Use your professor’s office hours to clarify material

  • Explain material in your own words; don’t just memorize

  • Try “drawing” processes, perhaps using a flow chart to reinforce the sequence of processes

  • Condense the material, make tables/charts

  • Be alert to differences between similar structures and concepts

  • Make up your own questions that could be asked on an exam

  • Have others quiz you as much as possible!
