    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn more about the human body and its processes. Dr. Naughton is an amazing instructor, very easy to take to and you want to participate in class. The discussions are through and highlight the key points that are then put on exams. She is really understanding if you miss a class but try not to miss to much, the information is give fairly quickly. Overall I loved this class, and I'm very glad I took it with Dr. Naughton.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course include the labs and the study tips. During the labs for this course Dr. Naughton uses the time to go over all the information that will be on the practicals and what we should study. To help her students she gives you study tips to help you remember the information. I did very well in the lab and the classroom. Highly suggested.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    There are study guides on quizlet.com that are very helpful! Even worded just like she does in class, use those to learn the material. Another good idea is to print off pictures of the practical material and label them from memory. Good Luck!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it. It's a tough class with a lot of information packed into a short amount of time, however the professor realizes that you are putting in the extra work and taking a summer class so he does cut you some slack. It's basically all memorization but not necessarily hard, just time consuming. Do the work and study. It is worth it to take in the summer to get ahead and just get the class out of the way. It seems horrible at first but it is over really fast.

    Course highlights:

    Great intro to human anatomy. You learn everything from cells, tissues, organs, muscles, and bones. You have to learn how to identify all of these parts and where they go. My favorite week was the muscle unit because that was something I could relate to (if you have participated in sports at all you will like it and already know some of the muscles--less studying). Bones were kind of cool too but you think you know the bones but no there is a name for every hole, nook, and cranny on a single bone.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to study it's all memorization as I said before, you just have to practice. You are given study guides and materials to help you, it's really just up to you to put in the work. Ask questions always and ask for extra help if you feel that you need it. Pay attention during lectures too so that you don't have to spend more time out of class to go over what the teacher went over while you were daydreaming or sleeping.
