    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is one of the foundations for nursing school and other health-science based programs. It is crucial to understand the material in this course if you plan on continuing on into the health science fields. It is also a very interesting class if you want to learn more about the human body and how it works.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about anatomy and physiology. However, more important I really honed my study skills for this class. I learned how to learn, which is something that can be taken to any other course or area of life.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to commit. This course is tough and takes a lot of time, but the knowledge gaines will be incredibly helpful down the road. In my nursing program we don't review anatomy and physiology we are expected to know it, and this course prepared me very well for my pathophysiology and pharmacology classes I am now taking.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are interested in medical field obviously this is a requirement. However if you are just a curious person and wonder how the human body function, you should be in medical field and this will be the requirement. Neither way, you'll learn so much from this class and really have a good foundation for the higher sciences class that you are interested in.

    Course highlights:

    It's one challenging class but I've learned so much about how everything works in our body in medical termninology (doctor language) and how would that explain the normal behavior in our daily basic function. It's truly mind blowing and very interesting

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard fellow! You can't just get by with this class by listening to lecture and study a day before the exams. Been there, done that, and also regret that so don't make the same mistake that I've made. Whatever you think in your head that you should do to success. Do it! Don't make excuses! Because in the end what you learn is really rewarding

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Putting together Anatomy and Physiology in one class is already difficult but this teacher is very, very hard. She changes her syllabus objectives and class assignments every quarter so I can't say she is always like this. She is a very knowledgeable teacher in the area of Biology; we spent almost 5 weeks of a quarter just studying the human cell. This is a bummer in my opinion because not only she wasn't as knowledgeable in anatomy(98 percent of students taking this class go to the medical field), but she focused severely detailed in concepts that are not going to be as useful in the medical field.

    Course highlights:

    She is really funny and this makes her class enjoyable. She tries to cover too much material to the point that students beg her to not have lecture after a practical or really long tests. Her tests are super long and extremely detailed for all she is supposed to cover. She is a "sometimes" easy grader in the tests but very picky at times about spelling or minor errors of using a different word instead of the word she was expecting. Her list of exam objectives is very vague and incomplete which makes it absolutely useless.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't work or take any other class if you are planning on taking this class. Study every day, every minute you have free and focus on the detail of every lecture. Knowing that the exam objectives for this class sucks, its better to read the chapter after her lecture and paying attention to her numerous power point that touch on specific material too broad in the book. Try to record her lectures, it helped me after failing the first exam and the first practical. There is so much she covers while she talks that is not in her power point presentations or the book.
