Energy and Metabolism

In the notes it says that at the end of the ETC there is still no ATP. But, when we are making the final calculations for ATP produced, we add 2 GTP (=2 ATP) from the TCA/Krebs cycle. How is that possible?

The Krebs cycle and the ETC are not the same thing. You do get a small amount of GTP/ATP synthesized in the Krebs cycle, but there is no ATP formed in the ETC.
