    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This medical terminology class was awesome! You get to learn new and old terminology used in everyday life.

    Course highlights:

    In association to my degree in business management specializing in the health care field I took medical terminology class which I would highly recommend. At the time of the class I also was an employee at a nursing home and this class gave me the knowledge to understand the terminology is highly used in this field. We use medical terminology our everyday lives and might not even realize it. This class taught me how medical words break down into smaller words to create a bigger definition. I truly enjoyed and loved this class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I believe you need flashcards to be successful in this class. They are very helpful in studying and memorizing.

    Do not forget to read the book and/or power points! Those help a lot.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because the teacher I took was a doctor herself. She really knew her information well especially from the experience she had. She would mention her direct hands on experience from the hospital and would talk about how much she loved her job.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how the medical terminology was used in hospitals the differences to look out for with the word roots and different forms they meant.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even though she was a very nice teacher, be sure to study up and know the terms she wants you to study or you wont pass. There are terms to know in every chapter as well as information about the body but if you study them the class and quizzes she gives are not hard.
