    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this class because professor Heimgartner is an exceptional teacher with an incredible knowledge base and a passion for teaching. Her Human Anatomy class is the most interesting and valuable class I've taken to date.

    Course highlights:

    The laboratory portion of this course was especially interesting because the University of Idaho sources human cadavers from the University of Washington. Observing and learning actual physical structures on the human body was an invaluable part of the anatomy course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I strongly suggest taking advantage of every opportunity to study in the lab (open lab time). Additionally, studying as a group was extremely helpful in this class, as there is a considerable amount of memorization.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course takes a lot of effort. If you don't need it, it's not a course you would take for fun. There are cadavers you learn with and a required lab portion. Not for the weak of heart.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot which is the upside of this course. You learn about all the body systems except reproductive, even though it's Candi's favorite topic. The course integrates a tiny bit of physiology with the anatomy even though you take physiology the following semester.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to STUDY. Study in advance and study hard. Don't buy all the recommended materials but DO get the book and use the online book. It has so many useful tools. Draw stuff out if you can and make flow charts. You need to make sure you thoroughly know what is being covered. Anatomy coloring books (The Wynn Kapit/Lawrence M. Elson book is the most detailed, and it's cheapest on Amazon) will help too. Find a buddy and work together to try to make it fun. ALWAYS go to open lab hours. Open lab hours are so helpful and the lab TAs usually have them before tests. Ask as many questions as you need to understand something. That always helped me. The library also has these awesome chalk and white boards, use them to draw stuff out, like the endocrine system or how blood flows through the heart. Never give up. Always do the extra credit.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course for every student. It makes you appreciate the human body and understand the everyday functions of your body. It is a challenging course, lots of memorization and studying, but it is 100% worth your time.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a better understanding of why certain things happen in my body and what processes are taking place. This course taught me to appreciate my body and all the different functions it is performing in everyday life. It's amazing, really.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study. Take advantage of the open labs and your lab TA's and, most importantly, don't be afraid to ask questions. Also, study groups help a ton, they open your eyes to new concepts and a new way of thinking about a topic.
