    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very heavy curriculum, I merged all the powerpoints; 1658 slides, using the finder tool crashed the computer. Cramming wont work unless you start 12 hours before the test . Attendance is random in the form of case studies (very easy, but suspiciously timed for whenever i wasn't there). Powerpoints are clear, and nothing on the tests aren't in 1 of the powerpoints. Mostly premeds in the class, but dont let them make you feel stupid, they're hurting inside too they just don't show emotion. Readings are assigned before class, but I always assumed it was just a joke, although the book is useful (get online version, the finder tool is massively helpful). If you dont do the massive readings, go anyway, its easy to convince yourself not to go considering its location at the riverside building (commoner parking). online Quizzes are easy to miss, print the schedule, nail it to the wall. There is a paper, she doesnt talk about it ever, but its there on blackboard with vague instructions. It says go to a presentation on a pathophysiological disorder in boise OR write about a personal experience and systematically explain the pathophysiology of the disorder. That presentation's a long shot and you will procrastinate so make up a personal experience (dont say ur dying). She'll up-grade you for doing a personal experience, nobody wants to give cancer boy a B.

    Course highlights:

    The chemistry of the imbalances in your body, their symptoms and how you can fix them. Very useful for a student. 3 day sleepless study session>legs turn red= hypertension (stimulants=vasoconstrictors>inflamm resp in blood-carrying vessels>inc pressure>heart cant wrk fast enough>blood pools in legs) solution=decrease salt method=drink water + eat potassium + sleep + elevate legs

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Test 1-3 make an outline of the slides, use the book for things you're unclear about. Theyre heavily based on memorization, so outline format is key. You want leveled lists that are well organized, well spaced and easily distinguished (I posted a good one for test 3 IMO). Organize it by part of body, and dont use dashes or underlines, instead use several spaces so you can clearly read a disorder and immediately read and recall its meaning to the right. Use a multileveled bullet list with extra indentation between levels and reserve the 1st level for 'part of body' (Go at least 2-3 levels in after that, a person can recall a graphic best when every part of its organization is easily distinguishable. Take screenshots of the quiz results on blackboard, she picks those questions for a reason, it means she thinks they're important and will likely include something similar on the exam. She gives hints on what to focus on when studying the class before the test, be sure not to miss. Test 4 (online-openbook) Export all powerpoints to word as an outline and Use the 'find tool' on disorders and types of cells as there mentioned (I uploaded it, took a long time, CPU doesnt like compiling 1600 slides in 1 doc). Also, use the 'test 4 questions...' uploaded on this site under this same course. 50% of them are verbatim, obviously from the same pool. Its 484 pages of test questions with tutor insight. Be quick and have everything ready before starting, youll have 2 min 24 sec per question. copy 7 or 8 words and post it to the find button on the 'test 4 questions...' and if it doesn't find a match simply look up the disorder or cell on the exported slide outline mentioned before. Look up the roots of words ("poietin suffix" stimulatory agent of cell growth and reproduction -Ex) Explain it to yourself as your memorizing, take interest and reflect.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is challenging and requires a lot of hours of studying. It goes into detail behind conditions, disorders, and diseases of the human body. What causes systems to fail in our body and outlines how to identify (manifestations) and treat the conditions.

    Course highlights:

    I have gained useful knowledge going into a professional career on how to identify certain conditions such as: myocardial infractions, strokes, right-sided heart failure, left-sided heart failure, and much more. This isn't limited to conditions of the heart but of all bodily systems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Breathe, read, and apply. I would skim each chapter and understand general concepts then begin on my PrepU assignments. The PrepU assignments aided my reading and what to read. Do not try to read the lengthy chapters word for word rather make sure you are constantly applying what you are learning by doing the assignments WHILE reading.
