This class was tough.
It was an awesome class full of interesting information, but it was also very difficult. You go through a packet of notes each class period and after four packets you take a test on the material. It is doable, but takes a lot of studying.
This class is great for the science majors or anyone wanting to learn about the human body. You learn about gross anatomy in the lab (labeling bones, muscles, tendons, nerves, veins/arteries) and more of minute anatomy in lecture like what makes up bones and muscles at the cellular level. You also learn about development and how the anatomy works (ex: how a muscle contracts) Mitch also throws in some random facts about nutrition that are cool. Mitch is an awesome professor, he makes the class interesting. He's a cool surfer guy who knows what he's talking about.

Advice for students:
Read through your notes every day for at least 15 minutes, more is better. I used my binder as a whiteboard and wrote out my notes on it with an expo marker. Get a group to study with early on if you study better in groups, your first test is 2 weeks into the semester so it comes fast. Also try to reread the packet you went over again on the same day as you went over it in class, that same-day repetition will help it stick. I didn't use the book at all, just the notes to print out. Your tests are your only grades.
