Some of you are returning to school after an absence. Welcome! You might be taking physiology out of interest or to acquire a prerequisite so that you can apply to a professional or post-graduate program such as Speech Pathology, Nursing or Medicine. For those of you who have not taken biology or chemistry courses in a while, you should work to review/learn some basic chemistry and cell biology – as we assume that students have this knowledge from first year and high school. Here are some ways to accomplish this: 1) Read Chapter 2 in the course textbook carefully and check your knowledge by doing the questions at the back of the chapter. Also read Chapter 3, but here focus on understanding the basics of enzymatic reactions. (You will not need to know all of the steps in glycolysis or the Kreb’s cycle.) 2) If you find that the course textbook is too difficult to understand, consider purchasing:

Unformatted text preview: Lori K Garrett 2010. Get Ready for A&P 2e , Benjamin Cummings, http://www.pearsonhighered.com/educator/product/Get-Ready-for-AP/9780321517043.page . Available as a textbook with website access or as an e-book with website access. This provides a review of the basics: math skills, cell biology, chemistry and includes diagnostic tests so that you can focus on areas in which you are weak. 3) Follow the learning tips posted in the link above. It is essential that you review the lecture material often and shortly after the lecture (studies have shown that shorter, more frequent review sessions work best). 4) Get help early via the course discussion board, PhysioEx help sessions, or during office hours. On behalf of both the other course lecturers in the course and TAs, I wish you all the best with the course. We hope that you find physiology as interesting as we do. Michelle French...
