    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    It is mandatory for certain science majors to pass A&P BIO 201/202

    Course highlights:

    Structure of the human body and how it works.

    Hours per week:

    Advice for students:

    Check your professor before signing up. And, clear your schedule of everything else to make time for this class.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone truly interested in anatomy and physiology (or the medical field). I usually worked in this class for 4-5 hours a day and it was the first B I ever received. It's time consuming but certainly has the opportunity to be very rewarding!

    Course highlights:

    Anatomy and physiology is the study of what the human body "is" and how it works. In that sense, the course is applicable to anyone (which is definitely a highlight! It's universal!), but I think it is most beneficial to STEM fields. It would be an excellent, challenging general anatomy class to pursue if you are truly interested in medicine.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Each period lasts a week and is usually one chapter of reading in the regular textbook as well as a chapter or two in the lab textbook. I took this class online, so the lab component only consisted of the book, which was probably the most challenging aspect of it. I would recommend taking this class in-person because it becomes very lonely very quickly. I would also make use of all the materials given, including the 2 CDs, atlas, and recommended "coloring workbook." From what I can tell, the Marieb textbook is widely used in colleges all across the country, so there are several videos online that pertain to the exact same material even though they aren't produced by Rio Salado (look up professors Mandi Parker, Jeff Kyte, and Fuzail Majoo). I also liked Hank Green's Crash Course videos as supplemental material. The only prerequisite from the course was High School Biology. I'm 16 and my school said that this was the equivalent of AP Biology - I disagree wholeheartedly because it really is more about the body than "molecular" biology. It's very different and 10th grade biology is not enough of a prerequisite, and I would also recommend having taken chemistry. Rio also has a BIO160 Introduction to Human Physiology and Anatomy, and I wonder if I should have taken that first.
