    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is rather exciting for people who enjoys medical related courses and plan on being in health care in the future for a career. My teacher taught me and my peers thoroughly to educate us and help us remember the terms efficiently.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a substantial amount of knowledge about the terms and definitions of the human body and other health related sources that should be known if you are interested in joining a health care facility. I also learned that this class requires a lot of studying to get this information attained within your mindset for you to use on a day to day basis within the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class requires a lot of studying to get this information attained within your mind for you to use on a day to day basis within the course. It is not a course on where you would have to look at a few words, not study, and expect to pass tests (especially really difficult ones). You must study and know this information for midterms and finals.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it taught me a lot. I had the vocabulary of a doctor by the end of this course. It was pretty easy and it was really interesting. If you are looking towards a career in the medical field definietly take this class. It may or may not be required in college, but if your high school offers it like mine did, take advantage of this opportunity to get ahead and earn college credit. Even if you're not interested in becoming a doctor or anything like that you may still like the class. We also have a few labs, not many, and they aren't dissecting animals or anything you might find gross.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to form words and determine their meaning from studying combining forms, prefixes, and suffixes. I also learned about how body systems work and what they are supposed to do. We even learned about conditions and how to compile a patient's medical history.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are interested in this course, don't lose focus. You can't forget things previously learned because everything builds off of each other and you'll definitely see it again. So always study, pay attention in class, and do all of your assignments.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course to anyone looking to pursue a career in the medical field because it is very important to have the skills this class teaches. This class is also a class offered in college so if you are in high school you may be given college credit if your school offers it. This is a great opportunity and this course is interesting so even if you aren't looking to go into the medical field, you should try taking this course! It's pretty easy too! And if you like labs there may be a few. If you don't, there aren't many and there isn't any dissecting or anything gross so don't worry about that!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to speak like a professional doctor because we learned to figure out what a word means and build words from studying combining forms, prefixes, and suffixes. We also learned how to abbreviate terms and how to compose a patient's medical history. We learned many thing other than words, such as what systems do and how they work, but learning terms is a major part of it since the course is titled "Medical Terminology."

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention, take notes, and study. To study terminology/word parts using flash cards helps a great deal! Do all of your work and homework as well because the work and amount of knowledge you should have just continues to pile up. You can't forget what you've covered in the past either because if you get behind it'll make your work harder and you'll havemore to learn in a shorter period of time since you'll continuously see the same words throughout the year as well as the new ones.
