    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a necessity for any medical career first of all, and secondly because it is super interesting to learn about all the aspects of the entire human body. I started out wanting to go into Radiology, but I couldn't afford to quit my job and go to school full time. I decided Biomedical Engineering is what I wanted after that. A & P is not necessary for BE, but I decided to stick with it anyway, because I wanted to finish what I had started and I wanted to have experience and background to help me even more in the future with BE.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the Nervous System the best in this course, followed by the Muscular and Skeletal Systems. The Nervous System was super complex, but I put in the extra effort to be successful and make A's in the class. I learned all about how neurons communicate with each other and all about different parts of the brain and what they control. I loved learning about muscle groups, and the extensive process of muscle contraction, along with bones, their different layers, and how new bone is laid down and old bone is taken away, which is called bone remodeling.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to learn a lot of information in a very short period of time. Give yourself at least 3 hours of study time for every class session. This includes studying and memorizing lot of terms and processes of the human body. A very hard class, but a good class that is the first step to preparing you for your career in the medical field.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend Anatomy and Physiology to any student because, as my professor noted, it teaches so much about the human body, and well, all of us have one. Taking the course helped me learn so much about the body that now, when my mom tells me she feels pain somewhere, I no longer have to "Google it" to find out what might be wrong. The course, though it may seem challenging at first, is so interesting that one would actually WANT to learn the material, and unlike some other courses, it equips students with practical, applicable knowledge that proves invaluable when applying to nursing school, helping an exaggerating friend understand why he/she is not dying, or even having an intelligent conversation with that good-looking guy or girl who just happens to be a biology major!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to dissect a cat, why diet and exercise should be done TOGETHER, and that the skull is not just one bone. I learned about organs, where they are located, and their different functions in the body; body systems and how they work together to perform all the work we do; and how anatomy (the way in which different body parts are designed) relates to physiology (the way in which those body parts function in our bodies).

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students considering this course to dedicate a great deal of time to studying the material. The course covers a great deal of information and it is difficult to remember everything if the information is not read over and over. It is good to remember what was learned at the beginning of the course, because it is likely to be connected to another topic at the end of the course. It is important to see the connections between different topics. A good idea for studying is to draw diagrams (even simple ones) to represent what has been read and understood, and paste them around the house in places where they will be seen frequently. I would also read aloud to myself, and then, using a white board and marker, try to teach a room full of imaginary students what I understood from my reading. I also used mnemonics whenever I had to study a process.
