This is a FREE website provided by your textbook publisher.
It is referenced in your notes, and lab assignments and is quite useful.
This icon is a hyperlink that will take you directly to the A&P Revealed (APR) website.
This website is the partner to your APR lab book.
You will need an access code (see syllabus) to access the information on this website.
See the A&P Revealed Orientation Section below.
This icon is where you should send and receive email regarding the course.
You can compose and send email to me or to other students in the class.
Email is the BEST way to get a hold of me.
I usually check my email several times per day, especially when exams are schedule.
Thus, if you email me with a problem most likely respond on the same day, even if it is 10 or 11pm.
This contains your course calendar/schedule.
It provides you with an outline of which topics you will be covering, when you should be working on them, and most importantly, the dates for all of the exams.

DO NOT MISS AN EXAM!!!!
This is the site where you will go to see your grades on your exams once they are released A&P Revealed Orientation
Pages 1-19 of your A&P Revealed workbook will walk you through how to use the APR website.
skip the section on Histology starting on page 10, and the section on Imaging starting on page 13.
PLEASE NOTE that there are many more structures on the APR site than you will be required to know.
the structures that you will be held responsible for will be listed on your Lab Assignments for each lab.
Things to especially note are:
When the labels are turned on, (meaning that the little pins are visible) for example when looking at bones, if you mouse over a pin, the name of that bone (or other structure) will appear.
At the same time, information regarding that bone or structure will appear on the lower left of the screen.
When the labels are turned on, and the little pins are visible, if you click on one of the pins, then the entire structure will be highlighted.
This will help you visualize the actual structure that you are looking at.
3.There are several layers for each view with each layer showing deeper structures than the previous.
Many of the structures that you will be viewing will appear on more than one view and/or at more than one depth.
The BEST way to familiarize yourself with APR and learn how to use this website is to simple SPEND TIME with it---click around on it and see what all you can find.
Again, please note that the pages, structures, and items that you are supposed to know from the APR site as well as you APR workbook are listed each of the lab handouts.
