    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Biology, nursing, or any science related major should take this class. It gives you an understanding of how the body works. It definitely made taking my other A&P class a breeze. If you can get through this class, you can definitely get through through A&P 2.

    Course highlights:

    I learned some basic and comprehensive body system functions. Became super comfortable with a microscope, huge plus. One system that was tough but I finally understood well was the muscle system and its cells. If you're going to HCC they start off A&P 1 with histology. Let me tell you it's an intense and information heavy section, but if you can understand what cells look like and what they do it becomes easier. Do not slack off in this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study at least an hour a day. Make flash cards. Go to study groups. Review your notes every day. Ask questions and write down the answers to those questions. In my A&P class, we were given case studies. Case studies would push you to understand the why in what was happening. They were awesome for learning. Lastly, but most importantly, READ YOUR BOOK!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would a absolutely recommend this course if you are taking it with Dr. Hulvey. He wants you to learn and know and understand. He is very available and always willing to help

    Course highlights:

    That the human body is amazing and if you have the right professor it makes the world of difference.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try taking it without any other classes so it can just be your focus because it is very time consuming.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Mastrionni makes the class interesting, she's very willing to answer questions.

    Course highlights:

    This course is essentially the basics of any health profession, it's an absolute must in order to understand the basics of human biology!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't exhaust yourself! Youtube is your friend, and so are your peers. Be sure to make little study groups, but if you're more introverted then I recommend hitting Barnes and Noble! They have a lot of books that offer more visually appealing and stimulating questions than the textbook.
