This class was tough.
Dr. Al-Dahwi cares a lot about her students. It is her priority to help her students succeed. She is a very experienced instructor because of her knowledge in the subject and how she is able to teach without reading from a book or using a presentation for guidance. She simply uses figures and explains from there, which was great for me because she made it very clear without the confusion that textbooks can have.
Finishing the semester, I felt like I had become more knowledgeable in the subject because Dr. Al-Dahwi has a way of making things stick so I wouldn't forget so easily. We didn't quite finish all the chapters in the syllabus, but it was because we focused on each chapter in great detail. Each chapter is dedicated for each body system, so be prepared to learn about all eleven of them!

Advice for students:
Definitely don't give up. This course is very demanding because it requires so much on behalf of the students. Come to class prepared by having already read the textbook chapter, therefore her explanation of everything will be easier for you to understand. She also goes through the material fairly quick, so I'd suggest staying focused during the lecture.
