    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend Medical terminology if you are going into a career in health care. For me, it was a nursing school pre-requisite. I really didn't know much about medical word roots & abbreviations, so this class really helped me. I later got a job with home health & hospice, & knowing abbreviations helped with charting.

    Course highlights:

    I memorized over 350 medical words (roots, suffixes, etc.), which sounds like a ton but it wasn't very difficult! This class helps you break down long, intimidating medical terms to determine what it's actually referring to.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    They showed vidoes & images with pretty unrealistic things, to help you retain the root definition. If you learn visually, you should stay & watch the video in class! If you memorize better by reading, just go home & study.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you learn a lot of key terms relating to the medical field. You can also easily break up those large words and identify what is going on with that body part. This class is tough though; there's a lot of memorizing and you have to associate those root's, prefixes, and suffixes with mnemonic devices otherwise it will be quite difficult to retain that information.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained great insight into the medical field and it's mechanics. I can easily deconstruct large medical terms and define what they mean. I can also do the complete opposite and form key terms to describe an illness/disorder. It's really helpful if you're looking into the medical field.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Create mnemonic devices for this course. They will save your life and make this course easier by a noticeable amount. Other than that always do your reading and study as much as you can. If you need I would also recommend making study groups with your peers inside your classroom. Also if you have any background knowledge such as anatomy and physiology it will also be a great help as well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because it helps you a lot with general knowledge of human anatomy, if you took anatomy then this class is a piece of cake but if you didnt it will be a little complicated but studying will save your grade.

    Course highlights:

    Ill highlight the big words, they're the most annoying thing about this class because there are many of them but again, if you study them in time you can do this really fast and easy.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use a lot of quizlet, studyblue is alright but its really complicsted to at least start it.
