    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is excited about what he teaches, which is contagious and makes his lessons that much more effective. He explains the material with real-life examples and physically involves students in the class to "act out" different processes. This makes the information stick and the class something to look forward to everyday. There is also a good deal of applicable knowledge to gain from this course and plenty of dissections in lab, so I would recommend it to anyone interested in the medical field.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about systems of the body I either hadn't heard of before or hadn't learned much about (endocrine, immune, etc.), looked at and memorized samples of tissues under microscopes, dissected a sheep heart and rat, learned how to take blood pressure, pumped up a real pair of lungs, worked through the process of diagnosis, and so much more. This class was one of the best I have ever taken, and I also received a good grade.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to hit the books. Be prepared for weekly quizzes. Find as many resources as possible. Watch Crash Course A&P videos, body system simulations, find online quizzes, make flashcards, build a reliable study group, make a daily plan to study and stick to it. You have to really stay focused to pass this class.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge about myself with studying habits but I also learned vital information that I use in all my other science classes. I really retained the information about anatomy because the material is very extensive.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study every day and study smart. The class had high expectations and a lot of information is from reading and gaining understanding on your own terms.
