Has anyone taken IB 131 Lab? Any tips?

<p>I heard lab portion is really hard and would like to know what's the best way to succeed in the class. Any tips would be helpful. Thank you so much! :)</p>


<p>I haven't taken it, but some of the graduate students in one of the labs I work for have GSI's it. I've heard that it is a lot of memorization, so if you can memorize body parts well, you would do well</p>

<p>Some of my friends have described the class as the hardest IB standalone labs (i.e. courses where lab is a separate course # as opposed to courses where lab and lecture fit under one course #).</p>

<p>Go to open lab hours. The best way to learn the material is to actually see it over and over again. For the lab practicals, you're expected to identify muscles/nerves/regions of the cadaver and models. This is especially important for the cadaver because it's not color coded like the models and the pictures in your textbook.</p>

<p>Also, be sure to pay attention to histology since that's worth like 1/3 of your grade.</p>
