Please see the college website to see the entire listing of student learning objectives at:
A course in high school or college biological science (i.e. Biology 20) is required.
This course (Bio 11) is a
prerequisite to Bio 12 at Saddleback College.
The required textbook for this course is
Human Anatomy, 6th edition
, by Marieb et al. (ISBN 0-321-57090-1,
), and the accompanying spiral bound
Human Anatomy Laboratory Manual with Cat Dissections
by E. Marieb (
, ISBN 0-
321-66706-9). To facilitate your mastery of this large amount of material, you will purchase a detailed set of
outlines for both the lecture and lab, known as "directed notes."
There are two separate packets. The lecture
and laboratory packets contain the set of directed notes, along with study aids.
Be certain that you get the
packets with my name on them.
You will use these directed notes as an outline as you write the class notes.
There are a few other materials that you will be able to download from the course website; but the packets
from the bookstore are the critical ones that you need as hard copy, in a notebook, with you in class every day.
You must bring both texts and directed notes to lecture and lab every day, as reference to the diagrams in the
