This class was tough.
I would recommend for AVS students to take it with Dr. Sartini as might be the AVS professor at URI in regards to tools and strategies to learn information.
After taking the physiology section of this course, I learned how the bodies of animals work, from their organ systems, to their neural signals, to the maintenance of hormone levels. Learning these processes in terms of flowchart pathways, really helped to create a mental picture of the processes. I have been able to apply this way of thinking and learning to many other hard courses that require lots of detail and many steps to the processes.

Advice for students:
Watching the provided lectures many times both before and after the scheduled class is essential to absorb the information. Classes are more like review sessions and extra office hours and the provided videos are the actual lectures you should take notes for. Studying with friends is a must because of the amount of detail you need to know.
