    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is the stepping stone for all medical degrees, and the way it's broken down at GCC chunks it out to not overwhelm you, however it is imperative to have an instructor that works for you! Dr. Wollner was a decent teacher overall, clearly passionate about the subject. However she was vague on things to study for tests and didn't offer much alternative practices for learning. She did eventually listen to the pleas of her students for more direct study guides, was always open to talk outside of class, and slowly added more ways to learn the material. This wasn't great for me being a kinetic and visual learner so I had to do more studying on my own time to pick up my grade after the first exams.

    Course highlights:

    The brain discretion in lab was awesome! For a bio class, getting truly hands on was a challenge, and we only a few actual dissections scheduled. Other learning on the body was done through plastic models, pictures, and outside help (hello anatomy coloring book).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Find out what works for your learning style and stick to it! Also find a group to study with to make the topics more bearable. This hive mind mentality certainly helped turn around my attitude after not doing so great with the first exams and practicals, and kept me engaged.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You learn all the bones in the body and muscles from head to toe. There is a lot of information to take in. Just take it one section at a time and stay in the lab to study the bones. I found it benificial to study the bones in person rather then looking a sheet of paper. When learning about the different systems in the body make sure to study daily to help retain the information. It's a fun class but it's tough material.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Wissman likes to incorporate old horror films or old rock bands into his slide presentations. This actually helped me retain quite a bit of information. I learned all the bones and muscles in the body. I learned the functions of 4 out of 11 body systems in depth.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study everyday with flash cards for this course. Make sure to go for any free lab time to get those bones and muscles down! It's all about repetition!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course in itself is very interesting but also very comprehensive and elaborate. Professor York makes the course fun and simple but also prepares you for the next anatomy courses you will have to take. There is plenty of extra credit opportunities that go toward your exam grades. Overall, I highly recommend this course with Professor York, you will definitely enjoy it!

    Course highlights:

    I not only learned the content, but it actually stuck with me into my following courses. I also learned better study habits and what works for me personally.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely don't study last minute, give yourself at the very least 3 days to study before an exam. Complete the objective sheets thoroughly and then complete them again. Flash cards helped me a lot when studying for practicals. Go to open lab to view the cadaver parts and use that time efficiently. Buy the book! I received a 93.8 in the course, an A.
