    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a great deal about the human body from this course, and it was absolutely fascinating! Human A&P is said to be one of the toughest undergraduate courses, so I approached it with a little trepidation, but I soon found that the reason is that you learn so much, and the difficulty is matched by the reward. Professors Tanya McVay and Hui Yun Li (who taught a few parts of the year-long sequence, such as neurology) were very nice and responded well via email (I took the online version of the course rather than the in-person version), and one of them--I forget which--allowed me to take a midterm exam a few days late once when I was too sick to feel like driving to the proctoring site. Two things you should know before taking this course: 1) The online version gives the same lecture+lab credit as the in-person version, but instead of dissecting human cadavers you use the Visible Body software with its detailed, accurate 3D model of human anatomy. I personally preferred the colorful Visible Body, and I think that students who are bothered by the thought of dissecting real human remains will find the online section of this class a welcome alternative. 2) Remember how I mentioned the need to "drive to a proctoring site" earlier? Well...you're not allowed to be proctored by just any library. You must be proctored either by a college testing center (which for me meant a 120-mile round trip, as the nearest college to me is a community college 60 miles away--a problem likely not shared by most prospective students), or by an online proctoring service that charges a fee of $17. I don't remember if that's $17 for the course or $17 for each exam (there are four exams per term--a midterm and a final for the lecture, and a midterm and a final for the lab portion).

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course included learning about how each system of the human body functions and is put together. I especially enjoyed learning about how nerves work; before the class, I had some popular misconceptions about how they transmit a signal. That might not have been in the first term of the sequence, though.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Because it's an online course (well...the section I took, anyway), it's up to YOU to log into the course every day and see what has been assigned for the week. Do log in the first day of the course--it does hit the ground running. Do *not* put off studying until the second half of the week, because it's easy to get surprised by the presence of more material than you realized! And DO watch all the lecture videos, including the "lab lectures" (referring, again, to the online course--I assume this applies to going to lecture for the in-person version). The book contains much helpful information, but you will be tested on the lecture material; if I remember correctly, the only time you'll be tested on material that's "book-specific" (i.e. in the book but not in the lectures) is if they warn you first.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Tanya McVay really knows her stuff! Her enthusiasm throughout the semester kept me engaged and excited about the course. Although she is a very tough instructor, she is always available when you need her to clarify anything, answer questions or if you need extra help on a topic.

    Course highlights:

    In bio 231, we learned a lot about neurophysiology and hormones in the body.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, make flash cards, and find someone to study with! Never skip a lecture, its incredibly difficult to catch back up on the lessons, as McVay goes fast to get everything in. Ask plenty of questions to gain clarification on lessons you are unsure about.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Its actually really interesting understanding how the body works and the functions that happen all the time that we don't even have to think about because our bodies are just so awesome to keep working.

    Course highlights:

    Getting extra credit opertunities are aweome even thought they are just one point that one point can go a long way and maybe be the deciding factor of and A or B. Do them they do actually help.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Start studying early I had waited for last minute some times and I paid for it. Prioritize your time well and study hard to get good grades.
