    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course helps you understand how organ systems function which is very needed when diagnosing a patient.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the cardiovascular system. The heart is so complex but in a very straight-forward way. Extremely interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take extra time to study the endocrine system. Lots of questions ask what hormones do.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Anatomy is very interesting and the instructor explained it in a way that was easliy understood. In this course we used microscopes and other technologies to study and learn.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me was looking through the microscope to see the different layers of skin and different types of blood cells, I also liked the dissections so you could actually see the different organs or blood vains and arteries instead of just looking at them in the book.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is not a course where you can do the bare minimum and pass, you really have to study and do work outside of class if you want to make good grades.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The reason I would recommend the course is because the professor really goes into detail with each of the units. I learned a lot more than I ever expected to in a single course about the human body’s parts and functions. If you’re interested in a career in the medical field, this will be a required course. However, if you’ve ever been interested in the body and might not know exactly what you want to do in regards to a career I definitely recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    A learned a lot about the human body and how it functions. The highlights of it all was learning how efficient the body is programmed to work and the amount of reactions and processes actually taking place at any single moment within the body. Following up with that we learned about all of the diseases, foods, etc that destroy the body’s efficiency to do what is has to do in order for us to fight off illness.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to the students who want to take this course is to study in any free time you have. This course is demanding, you will not pass if you only show up to the class. You have to put time and effort into it whenever humanly possible. There is a lot of information that you have to take in for every single unit and the final is cumulative. Flash cards have helped me achieve astronomical test scores because they allow me the capacity to study on breaks at work, when I’m home, in between classes at work too. Always study after the first day of a new unit because the following class after the intro to a new unit will result in a pop quiz which counts as extra credit towards your unit tests.
