    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor's teaching style helped us learn quickly and efficiently. He included study guides and online flashcards all along the way. Dr. Bishop made learning fun and easy. I recommend his course for anyone needing to take A&P.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the intricacies of our bodies and internal functions was incredibly eye-opening. This course is good preparation for future work in medicine and health professions. Most of our class was going into these fields of occupation and that helped us move forward in our learning.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare for lectures by learning to skim or speed read through the book material in advance. after lectures, review the material by again speed reading the notes. After this, it will be easier to reason through the topics because your subconscious brain will have been processing it already.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was fast passed but very easy to learn within. The professor prepared us with study guides and online flashcards that made learning A&P fun and manageable. The class size was small and allowed for a lot of interaction with our professor.

    Course highlights:

    It was incredible to see the way our bodies were created to operate smoothly and efficiently. Seeing the intricacies of our cells, muscular functions and natural abilities to repair injuries was eye opening.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn how to speed read the text book before each unit begins so that you understand the words being discussed in lecture and can picture where they are at in the body. After lectures, go back over your notes by speed reading so that your unconscious mind can pick up of the teachings quickly. After this, reasoning through the topics will be much easier.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class went at a very quick pace, but it was fascinating and I learned a lot more in one quarter than I had in other year long science courses. Professor Shopper was kind and understanding and gave students a lot of resources. Between the textbook, the study guides, the anatomical models, and the online flashcards and models, it was easy to study hard.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was getting an extremely thorough introduction to how the human body works. I didn't remember much from high school, but this course caught me up to speed and gave me confidence to pursue a medical degree.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend reading ahead and using as many study tools as possible. Flash cards, coloring books, online materials, whatever it takes to get this information in your head. It's very interesting material, but there is a lot of it, so studying early, thoroughly, and often are crucial.
