This course covers the first half of the Anatomy and Physiology course, with focus on basic chemistry, histology, cytology, and some body systems (skeletal, muscular, integument, & nervous). This course has 16 chapters broken down into 6 modules. The chapters in each module are then further broken down into 2 or 3 lessons. There are numerous quizzes and tests to check your understanding of the material at different point of the course. The end goal is your success in your A&P I college class, standardized exams like HESI, CMA (AAMA) and others that test your knowledge of Anatomy & Physiology, and testing out of A&P I in college if that is what you are aiming for.
I try as much as possible to apply terminologies to common day terms, and use relatable examples so you can remember better. I am also a big believer in practice, practice and more practice, so, every lesson inside this course has a practice quiz (with unlimited possible attempts) at the end. At the end of every chapter, you get a test to check your understanding of that chapter. As you probably already suspect, you have a module test to cover the chapters in that module, and at the end of all 6 modules, you have a comprehensive exam that covers all 16 chapters.
Questions for the quizzes, tests, and module exams are pulled from a question bank of over 3000 questions, that is continually updated.
Heads up: I will not bore you, but my jokes might be cheesy!!
I believe this is a very important class, since most people that take this course are in, or end up in a medical field. For all I know, I might end up as your patient one day, and I definitely want to be confident you know your stuff (If you don’t pass my confidence test, I am dragging my behind out of your clinic). That being said, I try to make my class fun since I know how challenging the material could be for some. So yes, you will hear a lot of jokes (All clean!). They might not all be funny, but they will help give you some breathing opportunity as we go through the material.
I highly recommend note taking as you go through the videos. Also, take advantage of the videos…. Pause, rewind, and go over it as many times as you need! Make sure you feel comfortable with the material in one section before moving to the next one.
It’s time to go become an expert in the first half of the Anatomy and Physiology course! I will be waiting for you in the course… well, not literarily; but you get the gist of it!
