    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is not that this course is bad, but the teacher does not fully prepare the students for their exams. I understand that the teacher makes his exams difficult and tricky, but there is a sign when over half your class is failing. The course focuses on in depth look of the human bodies structure and its complex functions. For those that gone through high school without studying or putting serious effort, than this is not the class for you. It is not enough to just memorize the material in the text book or in lectures. In order to earn a decent grade in the course, you would have to obtain the information given to you as well as to apply in certain situations. The course is extremely difficult and I would recommend it to the most studious of people.

    Course highlights:

    Through this class, I've learned that college is extremely different from high school. In order to obtain a good grade in college as well as to be able to keep that grade, you have to make the effort. Even if I feel that I have a grasp over the subject at hand I still find myself going to study groups, SI Sessions, and studying late at night for this class. It forces a person to make the extra effort towards their grade, and I believe that is better than what a person learns in a course. To be able to work for what you want to achieve is what I took from this class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to students would be to go to every lecture, go to every SI Session, read the text book daily, and stop by the teachers office for questions. If you are not willing to put forth the effort do not take this class.
