Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is a very useful class. Professor Kass uses lots of examples, analogies and metaphors, and makes very important content very easy and entertaining to learn. Of all the higher level classes I have taken in the last two years, I have drawn on the information I learned in BIO 377 the most.
This class Is important for learning about human anatomy. You will go through all the basic human human structures and body systems, and learn about them at all levels, from bimolecular to anatomical. This includes muscles, nerves, digestive system, cardiopulmonary and circulatory system.

Advice for students:
Reviewing important concepts from older classes would be very useful-this class is built on and requires of lots of more basic background information. Review basic anatomy from BIO 200 or 208, as well as major molecular and cellular processes from any old classes that taught them, as this makes up a major part of the information learned. Basic principles from physics are often also used. Also, it is very important that you make flashcards of the weekly CARLA questions- their information turns up often in the test. Finally, I did lots of studying with my lab group, which I found to be particularly helpful (more so than in other classes).
