    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the material is vast, but shallow. It is an introductory course, but it covers all the systems in the human body. That being said, this course does not delve as deep into anatomy and physiology as other courses. The anatomy part of this course focuses on the primary structures of each system in the human body. Then the physiology aspect covers their functions. This course is great because, after taking it, you will understand how your body works, why certain diseases happen, and, best of all, you will sound smarter to your friends when you can name all the bones in the human body!

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I gained a respect for the human body. I was amazed at what it could do and how it is always on your side. I also learned a lot about medicine. You would learn about a disease and how it used to run rampant, but now, thanks to medicine, it has been controlled or obliterated. I also learned how to take better care of my body. You learn how your body should be functioning and what causes it to falter. When you hear the very common things that can cause the body to malfunction, you take a better look at your habits. Due to the extensive material covered in this course, it also improved my studying habits and techniques because there was only so much time to learn all the material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every lecture and lab! Even if it attendance is optional, you will miss too much information if you miss even one class. Form study groups. It will not only hold you accountable for studying, but you will learn more if you teach a concept to a friend, or if a friend teaches a concept to you. Making flashcards is also helpful. Even if you never use them, the simple act of making them will instill the information in your head. Watch Youtube videos. There are ton out there about the human body; just make sure they are from a credible source. Read through your notes and rewrite crucial information on a new piece of paper and study that. If you are having trouble with spelling some of the terms, which can be fairly tricky, write down that word over and over again, until your hand aches. Read the material before class. You will feel less lost and can then spend the lecture listening to the parts you didn't understand in the reading.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I have recommended this class to many people because of Dr. Yancey. She's very helpful and enthusiastic about learning, especially when it comes to learning about decay.

    Course highlights:

    The urinary system was a lot more interesting than expected. I learned the importance of drinking water and that UTIs can spread all the way to the kidneys.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is not a class that can be crammed for when it comes to tests.
