This class was tough.
When you are planning on going into a medical related field, it is important to build up your knowledge on things related to medicine and the human body. Human anatomy was taught by one of my favorite teachers in high school. She taught us the course in the same format that she had been taught in college, giving us an intense, knowledge-packed class that truly challenged the whole class. The class quickly weeded out those who were not capable of keeping up, leaving only those who were willing to work hard and were able to retain vast amounts of knowledge. Human Anatomy was the class that I learned the most in out of all of my classes during the school year. However, I absolutely loved the class because there was never a dull moment. Every minute of the class was spent learning about the human body. Everything from the skeletal system, to the nervous system was included in the course. Unlike some classes during high school, the teacher never went on long, droll lectures. Instead, she made sure that every lesson was engaging and manage to keep the class fun, despite the heavy coursework.
The name of the class should be pretty self explanatory . The class focused on the human body. Everything from the skeletal system, to the nervous system, to the muscular system was covered. I learned things that never occurred to me. For instance, how babies are born with about 300 bones, but as they grow into adults, several bones fuse together, leaving the person with 206. At the ed of every unit, we did projects on diseases and disorders dealing with the system we just covered. I learned about Brachial Plexus Damage during the nervous system unit, styes on the eyelids during the integumentary system, and Legg Calve Perthes during the skeletal unit, among many others. As I mentioned before, the class was jam packed with learning.

Advice for students:
I would tell all students thinking of this class to keep all notes that are taken during this course- they will be vital during tests and the final exams, not to mention in the future whenever the need arises for quick reviewing over the human body. Also, do not allow yourself to get distracted. The class has so much information to learn from. If you do not pay attention, you will fall behind.
