Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I found this class super interesting! I am interested in the human body to begin with I think it's an amazing machine with great complexity. This class covered a lot of material, but what I found to be admirable about it was that the professor taught it in an easy to understand way, using practical applications like stories and visuals to help you understand the material better, which is really key to learning complex material.
I loved the physical application of learning in this class, meaning the balance of lecture and having a real life cadaver to learn and incorporate what you have learned. The labs were awesome in my perspective, if you get a great bunch of people in your class who are willing to learn and have fun with it, the class is very enjoyable and you learn a lot! Plus, the instructors for the labs are amazing in themselves, I had the best instructor. He was funny, knew his stuff, very energetic, could tell he really liked teaching about the body. Overall, the experience was really great. In the labs you learn about musculature, some osteology(bones), a lot of vasculature(arteries + veins), organs, organ systems and about functional movements of the muscles. Once you warm up to seeing a dead person, you get more intrigued into the learning component more.

Advice for students:
To succeed, after lecture review your notes! Plus, use the note packets that are given, because you are not going to have enough time to write down every slide and every word the professor says. Those packets are your study guides! Almost everything off the exams are in those packets, plus when the 2nd and 3rd exams come around, half of the material is going to be case scenarios, where you have to answer specific questions to the scenario given (This is HARD!) Make sure you know your stuff! That is why I am saying review your lectures often!! Know the material!!
