    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'm looking to major in nursing or pre-medicine, so this was a required course for me. I enjoy learning about A&P and did fairly well in 223 (Human Anatomy and Physiology I). However, I struggled in this class because I wasn't pushed as hard as I was in 223, and I was already familiar to the material, and I tried to coast through it rather than push myself forward. Don't let that deter you from taking the course, however, because the human body is truly amazing and required or not, it can help you expand your knowledge on why some things happen.

    Course highlights:

    BIOL 224 really focused on the systems of the body that had more physiological functions to them, such as the endocrine and lymphatic systems, and focused on the physiology more so than the structure of these systems. You will be expected to learn various hormones, what they do, and where. You will also get scenario questions that have you trace something from start to finish (such as a nerve propagation or a meal and all the organs and enzymes needed to digest it). You do get study guides, and depending on the professor they could be outlined by question and what section it's from, or it could be a list of concepts that you can print out and write notes on.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to learn the details. It's not like 223 where you have to know a few things about every part. You need to understand the cause and effect of these things and where they come from, so flashcards are your friend. Don't skim over the material and think you can get a C or even a B because you will look at the short answer question and wish you had spent more time on it. Make time to study with other students and friends and bounce your knowledge off of them and see what they think you missed. Finally, have open conversations with your professor about how you're feeling and what advice they can give you. I talked to my professor maybe once in the very beginning and that doesn't make you stand out in a class of a few hundred people. They're a valuable resource, so use them.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommended this course to anyone who is planning on going into anything medical related. The professor knows what she is talking about and is really passionate about the subject.

    Course highlights:

    I am currently still taking the course, but I have already learned so much knowledge and I love it. Biol 223 you just learn the basic anatomy of the human body, but biol 224 goes so much deeper. In 224 the professor takes you more in depth of all the body systems. You learn how the function works from the inside out, why, and how it affects your body and other systems.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course be prepared to work. The course is not an easy A and the professor is definitely going to make you work for it. Also study is key for this course and if you do not stay caught up you already failed. You can not pass this course without studying, so if this is something that you are really passionate about I would definitely take her course. The medical field is only going to get harder from hear and the professor prepares you for that.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Interesting course providing information about the human body and the ins and outs of our biological systems that allow us to function

    Course highlights:

    Learned about several body systems including the Genitourinary, Endocrine, Neuro, and more. Insight and knowledge on how these body systems work starting from the cellular level to the big picture on how the body system works with the body as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Requires a decent amount of studying. Flashcards, diagrams, and good note taking is helpful if not essential. Study in groups, and utilize your lab time to understand the mechanisms of how the organs work together.
