Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Excellent course for those who are planning of entering a career in the medical field. As a soon-to-be nursing student, I found the material for this course to be very interesting. Excellent professor as well. He truly cares about the student's success and effectively carries out his role as a professor.
We learned about pathologies about every body system. We learned about inflammation, neoplasia, heart disorders, respiratory diseases, diseases involving the GI tract, and more. We also examined different case studies and diagnosed sample patients with conditions we have already learned. We got into the nitty gritty of many concepts, but it will come easily as long as you are truly interested in this kind of material. With true interest, learning should come easy. This course can get difficult at times, but the professor makes it easy for us to understand.

Advice for students:
Study a little bit every day. Although that may seem hard, it's definitely doable. It is up to YOU if you want to excel, not just in this course, but in any course you are enrolled in. Study in a group as well. When approaching new and hefty material, it is good to study in a small group of about 2-4 people. Having discussions and asking questions about the material really engages your learning. Also, be sure to take effective notes in class.
