    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Start your brain for mental stretches and warm-up, because this class is continually measured on memorization of new terminology! This is one of the few classes in which to achieve an "A" in this class, you'll need a 93% or above. My best tips for this class, is to know the prefixes and suffixes to medical terms; covered in the beginner chapters of the book. If you memorize these, a "B" or higher is easy to achieve in the class. Alongside this, take every term from each chapter and memorize its definition. Don't waste your time reading every word in the book; memorize the vocabulary!!! I scored a 98.25% in this class; trust me. Overall, this class and instructor are fantastic, and will prepare you for your medical professional career!

    Course highlights:

    They always say, if you go into the Med. Field for a career, you'll increase in vocabulary by 3,000+ terms or more. Ha, well this class in itself could reach that goal. Memorize the prefixes and suffixes. To pass this class above a 98%, I observed my grade in the class after every spelling test, test, and exam. I gave myself a goal of shooting for 100% each time. This class prepares you for terminology for nursing, gerontology, radiology, physical therapy and many other medical professions.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and memorize your vocabulary terminology, every single day for at least 1-2 hours. If you have the terms memorized, you'll dominate this class. If you struggle in memorizing terms at the beginning of the class, then this class will eat you alive. It takes a ton of discipline, not smarts, to pass this class; it's like learning a new language and takes daily discipline to learn it. God bless, and bless others!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone that is going into a healthcare profession because the course teaches a person to indenitify the prefixes, roofs, and suffixes and their meaning.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I learned multiple things. One of the more important items I learned was the definitions and parts of medical words. I also learned the correct pronunciation of the words as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best way to get through the course and to actually learn and take away knowledge from this course is to study outside of the classroom, pay attention and stay active in the discussions among classmates and the teacher.
