Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is very challenging and in depth however it is fun and it offers students many avenues for help and practice. By the end of the course, many students will have complex ideas memorized/simplified and understood and will have had a fun time learning them.
I gained a better knowledge of human anatomy, I learned how bones grow and form, how/why muscles contract, how the skin protects and maintains the internal environments, the types of cells the body contains, and how the body controls and communicates within itself.

Advice for students:
Overall lots of memorization is required* First chapter will introduce simple concepts that have far reaching effects on how well you in the course. DO NOT SKIP. That said, this chapter is a basic overview and it teaches you what to expect. Tip 1: the first few(1-3) chapters are very important do not skim. Tip 2:When you approach some the larger chapters such as those on bones, muscles, integumentary system, and nervous system, skimming is advised. However, you should look at every picture and read every label. The brain portion of the CNS chapter is a vital read, the rest can be skimmed. Tip 3: Go through the powerpoints (labeled and unlabeled) before every test. Tip 4: Pay attention to homework assignments, some can sneak up on you and they are not always advertised early in class. Tip 5: Some mastering assignments will be due before the In-Class lecture. Tip 6: Go to the science grotto if you need help they have displays, models, and free tutoring. Tip 7: Mrs. Davison is a very kind and open teacher, even if she doesn't seem like it. sometimes, ask her for help when needed. Tip 8: Have fun and relax, any failure is only an experience to learn from.
