Yep. It went something like this:
"Meh, there's always hype about the anatomy exam--no way it's as bad as people are saying. So what if I've been too sick and passed out to study like I should? I was there for the whole dissection and we reviewed all the time, I'm sure I'll be--HOLY S@#& WHAT WAS THAT???!!!"
Fortunately, that was the first exam of the course, so I learned my lesson and got my act together for the next two. I also take comfort in the fact that the class average was below failing for that exam (although I was a bit below the class average. Just a bit.
). The moral of the story is that in anatomy there is absolutely no substitute for unending, soul-crushing hands-on review until blood vessels invade your dreams.
