Background Knowledge Expected
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend taking this course to any one who planing a career in the health field. It is highly informative on the parts of the body and how they work. I covers information from the organ all the way to the cellular level. It gives some information relative to chemistry, however, overall It is very much necessary if you want to learn about the body.
I would be lying If I said I didn't still have much to learn, there is so much to learn about the human body. None the less, I have learned so much from this course. The highlights, for me anyways, were the chapters on the skeletal, and the skeletal muscle systems. When you break down the muscle all the way to the cellular level, and learn about how muscles contract, it is truly amazing. Or just how amazing the bones are, they do so much more than just give are bodies support. They have multiple function such as storing nutrients withing the diaphysis of the long bones and producing red blood cells (hematopoiesis)withing the epiphysis.

Advice for students:
I can not stress this enough, but the only way to survive this class is to study. Study and get a thorough understanding of the material. Take notes in lecture, and actually study what was talked about in lecture. If there is something that you don't fully understand, ask, no question is a bad question. Finally, don't be afraid to communicate with those around you, form study groups.
