This class was tough.
I have failed this class in the past, due to technical difficulties with my computer. I am now in the class again, and I am having difficulty with Audio Ace, my cats ate my headphones and I do not have the money to buy some new headphones. The professor has informed the class that if you do not have access to Audio Ace for audio discussions, you can still receive credit by submitting a transcript only. The last time that I was in this class, there were point taken away from me due to the fact that I could not afford any new accessories for my computer. I am so happy that she understands what some of the students are going through, most of the problems are from lack of access to Audio Ace, and financial difficulty. But Professor Sheila Pierson understands and I am so happy.
I have learned that medical terminology is the language of the medical profession. All people that are currently in the medical field and and the students that are studying to become a health care professional need to know, at least the basic, medical terminology. This class is difficult, however with a lot of studying and reviewing, as well as, doing all of the reading assignments, and the homework you will learn this language. The first time that you look at the text book and all of the words, it can be overwhelming. However read all of the reading assignments, and do all of the homework you will learn a lot more than you think you have. I thought that I would not get through this class, However I am doing very well and I will continue to do very well. Some advice I would give to fellow students, is that if you have a printer, print all of the words in the vocabulary and print all of the exercises at the end of the chapter and do these exercises, these will help immensely. If you do not have a printer, plan to write all of the vocabulary words down and do the exercises at the end of the chapters located in the textbook. Then review all of the information every night and you will do very well.

Advice for students:
Plan to print all of the vocabulary words and the exercises at the end of every chapter, in the text book. Do these exercises and then review all of the vocabulary words and the exercises for at least thirty minutes every night. If you have a job use your time wisely. Jobs can interfere with time management. Have a schedule, for time management, and stick to this schedule, this class takes a lot of time and the reading is another issue that will take a lot of time.
