    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The only reason you're taking this course is because you're a nursing major, a pre-pt major, or a biomedical engineer. Take it with Boyer because he can make class funny occasionally and he is very knowledgeable with anatomy. He's happy to help you but you really have to put in the effort to study hard.

    Course highlights:

    The dissections were definitely the best part of the course. Being able to see firsthand what you were learning about in lecture was awesome. Learning about how our body sends neurological signals and about how muscles contract was very interesting as well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take this course lightly. You can't start studying for the test a day or two before, if you want an A you have to start a week in advance. Spend a lot of time in the lab before practicals. Pay attention to what he says.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was not too hard or too easy. Attendance was optional because the information was on the presentations and in the text. Professor Boyer was a fair professor, but he wasn't super interactive but he was informative. He does not tolerate cell phones in class or nonsense.

    Course highlights:

    Most of the highlights were in the lab part of the course. The lab was interactive. The experiments were informative though, there are a lot of dead animal dissections so be warned. I learned the parts of the body where they are located and what they do. It's a lot to learn in a short amount of time so be prepared to study.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need an effective study method and schedule. You need to put a lot of time into remembering what the parts are and what they do. There is no extra credit. You get out what you put in.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course goes in depth into the organ systems and how they operate. The textbook that goes along with the course goes in depth and contains resources and tips to help retain the information. The graphics in the book immensely help with the topics discussed. The course is great for anyone wanting to learn more about the human body or going into a medical profession.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much from this course. This course goes in depth into each of the body's organ systems as well as the cranial nerves, bones, muscles and more. The course explains what happens in the body, the purpose of parts of the body and showed me the importance of the course content.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course demands a lot of time and effort. It will be necessary to study every time you have a class to retain the information learned. There is an immense amount of memorization and information to retain so dividing it up will be beneficial. If there is something that is unclear, I would advise seeking clarification fast because one subject often builds off another and you can quickly get overwhelmed from confusion. I would suggest recording lectures so you can always revisit material. In addition I would pay attention to the graphics in the books and use resources available to study, such as the online tests and videos. Overall, it will be important to take sufficient notes and study a lot to be prepared for exams and retain the information for future use.
