    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is actually one of the most interesting and useful classes I've ever taken. A lot of what we learn is useful in different ways. There have been times when I learned something from the course that was beneficial in another course as well. If you take this course, you will most likely be glad that you did because you will see these terms you learned again, not only in your career but also in your personal life. We learn a lot about different prefixes and suffixes, by the time you reach the middle of the semester, you will be able to see a word that you don't know and be able to figure out what it means based on the prefix or suffix.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite things were the practice assignments. My instructor would post a medical term (without the definition ) and you had to try to infer what the definition was based on what the prefix or suffix of the word was. It was like piecing together the parts of the word to figure out what it meant. The practice assignments weren't graded, but were done just to see how much you'd learned.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to memorize as much of the terms as you can, because each chapter builds on the previous one. For example, if you don't know the terms from Chapter 3, then when some of them recur in Chapter 6, you will have a harder time trying to learn them. As long as you do the work on time and study sufficiently, you should do well in this class.
