This class was tough.
Jonathan Christie is a quirky, fun guy. He is very knowledgeable about anatomy, and he makes some very, very complex information easy to understand by using lists and step-by-step processes. You will have to study hard for this class, but the information is fascinating. It is well worth the effort.
The highlights of this course were Professor Christie's enthusiasm and the camaraderie with the other students. Taking the A&P sequence is a bit like going to war with fellow soldiers. You share some trauma and disappointment, but you come out of the battle stronger, with a new appreciation for life. In Bio 231, you will learn literally hundreds of muscles and bones. You will memorize their names, locations, and functions. You will learn how to identify different tissue types under a microscope. If you go on to complete the series, you will also learn hundreds of other things about the human body, but when you finish, you've still only seen the tip of the iceberg.

Advice for students:
Rewrite your notes, then rewrite them again. I did flashcards. Some students had success using 8x10" dry-erase boards then could carry in their backpacks. Repetition is key to drilling this information into your head.
