    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Primack is an exceptional instructor. There is never a dull moment in his class. He is very thorough in lecture and makes certain that the material is well conveyed and understood. His way of teaching is very straight-forward and relevant to what he is teaching, meaning he hardly strays off topic. However, his class is not easy.

    Course highlights:

    In BIO202, the next step after surviving BIO201, you are introduced to the different systems of the body (respiratory, digestive, lymphatic). You learn the different functions, diseases that occur if the system isn't functioning correctly, and etc. A lot of information that you learn in this course relies on what you learned in BIO201 and will ultimately carry over into Pathophysiology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Because the class isn't easy, you want to be sure that you're reading the assigned readings, working on study guides, taking notes during lecture, and even recording lectures which help reiterate information. Detail is key in understanding information! If you can explain information you learned to another person, you're sure to understand it.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Most health related majors will require students to take this class in order to move on to advanced courses. Besides it being a required course, I found that Anatomy and Physiology II was much more interesting because you got to learn about the many systems that keep the body functioning. I would recommend this class because you will be blown away by how much work our body does to keep us alive.

    Course highlights:

    The lecture for this course was intriguing because you learned about how the slightest change in hormone or cell can affect the body. For me the highlight of this course was learning about the blood flow through the heart. Although, it was hard work at the time I am glad that I committed it to memory because it will and has come up in advanced classes. Another highlight about this class was the lab because I was able to use cadavers to aid my learning. I found it fascinating to memorize the blood flow through the heart while looking and touching an actual heart. By far, the best classes I have ever taken during my college career.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I can not stress enough how important it is to use the book, it helped a lot during study time at home. I would also recommend to get help from the professor and/or the teacher's assistant. Finally, once you feel that you have gotten the material down on your own, I suggest to study with a partner next so they can fill any gaps that you may have missed on your own.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was very difficult, but Dr. Melilo was very good at being thorough on information and allowing class time to ask questions. He would often point out what you needed to know for his tests and what you didn't, but should know. He gave study tips and always encouraged students. The course was much better than BIO 201, as it was more application of everything learned in that class. It was much more interesting than BIO 201 since you were applying things and learning all of the body systems

    Course highlights:

    Actually applying previously learned anatomy and seeing how the entire body connects and works together. Learning about why things in the body happen the way they do and having content that was easily applicable to everyday situations

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are willing to put in the study time. It is not a class that you can simply breeze through and only memorize power points or glance at the book. Studying is a necessity and you should have multiple sources of information and multiple study types
