This class was tough.
I would recommend this course only because it is required by major requirements. It is a very technical and in depth course. Unfortunately none of the other courses taken prepare you for the amount of detail needed.
While taking this course I learned to make an in depth nutrition analysis, of a bed ridden patient. Measuring body mass, by using charts and femur, waist and hip measurements. Then determine if the patient was suitable for Paternal or Renal feeding procedures. Then learn to read a blood chart to determine if how much protein to carbohydrate ratio the patient should require to promote health and recoverability.

Advice for students:
Good study habits are required for this course. Make sure to take good notes and read the text that is given. The exams are straight from the text and not from the lecture, so make sure to read the text before the lecture and have questions prepared for anything you do not understand. Do not worry about the score on your first quiz since they are weekly. just learn the style from your first experience and go from there. One test score is dropped at the end of the term and is graded on a curve.
