    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to others because although it is challenging, it is very interesting. It is all about learning about our bodies and our systems. I would not recommend it to the person who does not have the time and effort to put into the course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning about the skeletal system and the nervous system. Although learning every notch on the bones was difficult, it was still possible. The nervous system was very fascinating because it is how all of our other systems operate. It is cool how we have an entire chain of events(reflex arc) to feel something yet it only takes less than a second to move our hand away from a hot stove.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course requires dedication. I took it in an 8 week accelerated format and it was insane. I would highly recommend, especially if you are not that great at biology, to set aside time to really study and look over notes. For me, 8-9 hours was enough but for others in my class needed to study more. I also highly recommend forming study groups(no more than 4 people). It is a great way to hear others explain and bounce topics off of each other. It is challenging but it can be done!

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is incredibly interesting! However, I personally felt the professor was unhelpful. She talked really quickly and didn't give a lot of time for questions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the human body and how fascinating it is!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise any student to go to the tutoring center A LOT!!!! Read the book, but don't waste your time trying to memorize every detail.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was probably the hardest class I have ever taken. There's so much information and not a lot of time. It moves fast and you have to be present both physically and mentally. I would recommend this to an individual who learns through taking notes as well as being hands on because both are required to succeed in this class.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the hands on portion of this class which would be the lab. We really got inside the body in parts that you would never think to look at. There were models, activities, practice quizzes, and overall lots of hands on activity. It really helped me understand what was going on in the lecture part of the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study. Study. Study. Don't just leave class and never look over this material again. It is imperative that you go to lab study sessions as well as group study sessions. Because you will be tested on both lab and lecture you should focuses on mastering the class as a whole, not just lab over lecture.
