Looks like it's going to be a fun year with neurology as one of the topics! :D

Does anyone have recommendations for textbooks or other resources?

I've heard that Gray's Anatomy is great.

Can't tell if this is sarcasm or not :lol:

Also, for textbooks, I recommend basically outdated college or advanced high school books. They usually sell for $3.00 on Amazon/Ebay including the shipping, and they're all pretty much the same.

Read through the entire respiratory section and most of the digestive last year, and lemme tell you, it is DENSE. A good deal of it isn't terribly useful for our purposes, but you will probably pick up a bunch of those little facts which tend to make a difference when it comes to competition. So that you don't have to go through the agony of reading it in tiny print, the whole thing is online, original diagrams and all, which also makes it easier to search for something in particular you want to know about if you decide it's not worth actually reading through it. And of course, since it is Gray's Anatomy, you'll still need to go elsewhere for the physiology part, since it barely goes into the actual functions of most organs/systems.

Pretty sure it's not, my friend is similarly excited about this year.

I'm so jealous of you guys... the nervous system is the best. Wish I could be competing in that topic.

I started a project early this summer developing a cheat sheet for every system, and I haven't made any headway since June, so I'll see if I can take it up again, just for kicks. I'll post them here if I ever finish any of them! :D

That sounds interesting, are they all one side each because of the 2 body systems a year?

The only problem this may bring up is that people can just copy, paste and print the cheat sheets, which goes against the whole learning process of searching for information to put on the cheat sheet.

Well, for div C it's 3 body systems/year. And I hope no one will be that unethical, though thanks for bringing it to my attention. :?

Rather than make cheat sheets for it, what if you put in some useful notes or information that we should probably know? It could be over a page then, and we'd still have to sift through all the information.
And the nervous system isn't that bad...I spent half the summer going through my three Anat textbooks for this. I can say that it's better than digestive. (Which I have to do this year anyways, but oh well.)

I like the addition of the Nervous system this year, especially since I will be able to test on it through all the rest of my high school time. :D Does anybody have the rules yet for A&P? If so, what topics are covered in the Nervous system this year?
