    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Chris is the crux of this class. She's the cool aunt who's understanding and is always there to listen, and I mean it when I say that. She will do whatever it takes to (fairly) help you pass, and I guarantee you'll leave the class knowing more than you ever expected! Her class is one of the best if you want a teacher who cares about you as much as she does about science. It is a tough course that does leave you to cry a few times, but just email Chris, and she'll do everything in her power to help you.

    Course highlights:

    You won't just memorize a book; you'll understand the book and much more! You learn non-cognitive skills like time management and building your own team of friends to help you through the quarter. Learning the organ systems and their histology comprises all of AP 1 and Bio175, and for AP1 there is a cell biology quiz you must pass in order to continue her class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must not procrastinate. I repeat: do not wait to get what can be done today for tomorrow. It will come back to bite you. Study everyday. I recommend rewatching her lectures on Panopto. If you know those lectures, you'll know everything on her exams. Also, if you plan on taking AP 2 with her, do not forget what you learned this quarter. At the end of AP2, you will have to take the HAPS. Which, if you don't know, is a culmination of all you've learned from AP1, AP2 and general biology.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is easily one of the most difficult courses I have taken, but it is extremely rewarding. It is thorough in its approach, teaching about structure, how bodily systems work, as well as what happens when something is wrong in the body, and how to preform examinations of patients. Very comprehensive for an introduction course. I had no previous knowledge of human anatomy, and this wasn't a problem at all. Chris will begin with easier material and get harder as the course goes on, but at that point a lot of the concepts will make sense and you will get the hang of how to study. Even though the class was hard, I can't imagine having any other professor. Chris knows what she's talking about and is very straight forward with what is expected of you.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained an extreme appreciation for all my body does to keep me alive. There are so many complex processes and parts to the human body that it is dizzying to memorize, but once a concept clicks in your head you feel incredible. My favorite part of the course was memorizing the bones and muscles, mainly because it made the most sense. There is a great deal of connecting the small parts of the body (molecules and cells) to the large parts (organs and systems). Sometimes in other courses it is easy to get tunnel vision when talking about the same topic for weeks, but Chris keeps things moving and she always relates our concepts back to the larger picture of human health/care. There was never a disconnection between what we were learning and the real world importance; everything we talked about is vital to know if going into the medical field, and even useful if one isn't going into that field.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The first thing I would recommend is to lessen your workload outside of this course; take "easier" classes or even less classes. Having to tackle this course plus others was extremely difficult, and I wish I hadn't taken two science classes in the same quarter. Always read the textbook ahead of time, before she lectures on it. Her lectures do not cover everything, and are often just for clarification on concepts you should have already read about. She records every lecture and doesn't take attendance, so if you miss a day, it isn't that big of a deal. Definitely use flashcards, specifically when memorizing anatomy. I would suggest online flashcards simply because I find them faster to make, and you will save money; a typical set for an exam consisted of 600 cards, and that is a lot to carry around. Do not forget to study intensively for the cumulative final. Even though you already know the information, when you are taking in so much information you are bound to forget something. Go to extra lab hours and study the models because she often puts a sticker on a organ/muscle/bone and asks "what is this". If you don't have enough time to be in lab, take pictures of the models on your phone, but make sure you actually study them! I spent a lot of time taking pictures but never referred back to them, and that was a mistake. There is online resources and animations that are extremely helpful; do not ignore these, especially if you are a visual learner. She gives you many opportunities to ask questions and receive help, so don't be afraid to go to her for help. She might seem intimidating at first, but she knows that the content is confusing and will explain it to you in different ways until you understand.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor O'Reilly is very disorganized, isn't clear on what you'll be tested on, and doesn't have beneficial lectures.

    Course highlights:

    I did enjoy the labs, they were fun and interesting.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters, he will test on main points in the textbook.
