If you are like me and you learn by seeing things in 3D and working models, you might find a trip to the National History Museum a great investment in your studies. There are lots of exhibits of human biology and you can see cells, muscles and organs in 3D with lots of interactive exercises to help you remember your anatomy and physiology.
Then of course there is Dr Gunther von Hagens renowned exhibition of real human bodies; body worlds. This is not for the feint hearted, but if you really want to get to know your muscles it is a real must. The exhibition has travelled around the world and has attracted over 47 million visitors. You can journey to discover the wonders of your body and discover the magic and mysteries that lie underneath the skin.
When I taught Anatomy and Physiology I always recommended the pop-up books made for children to get an idea of the scale and size and position of organs. I am sure you will find some in the childrens' section of your local library.
And then of course there is the anatomy and physiology colouring book for the very keen. It is medical student level so not for everyone, but when i was doing my anatomy and physiology course I found colouring was a really useful way to learn.
I also found making my own flash cards a useful revision tool. Making them was the instrumental part of my learning. However you can buy some from Amazon or similar.
The benefit of making your own is that they will be tailor-made to the content you require for the ITEC syllabus.
"The level 3 Anatomy and Physiology course has been really worthwhile, and provided me with a much needed foundation in A&P to go onto Osteopathy. Thanks for providing such an accessible, and easy to follow study program."
