    The course was ok. It needed more practice and review opportunities such as Learn Smart or another review system.

    It is a complete course and you learn a lot, however the tests even though they are open book are challenging. Especially, come mid-term or final there are no reviews and questions can be very specific. There really is no way to be that versed in all of anatomy down to some of the questions asked. Otherwise, good course to get out the way for better things.

    This class was on the first 18 chapters of the book. I found that reading each chapter completely was most helpful (not just taking notes of the highlighted words). Each topic took me on average of 8-10 hours to complete except for the topics that covered two chapters, those ones took more like 14-16 hours. The quiz questions mostly come from the book and not the online videos, but you should still watch them. And a lot of the information is on the cellular lever which was kind of hard to get used to, be sure that you know the processes of how things work. they like to put that on the quizes.

    I found the course material and layout to be very doable. Taking the course online was great for my busy schedule and the slideshows for each chapter made learning the material a little easier. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

    It was very difficult. This was my first experience with an online course. The content was good. It would have been too difficult to take at home without a professor if this was your first class and you were not familiar with the human body. I am an xray/CT technologist and struggled with it.

    I love that Straighterline offers courses that are "go at your own pace." There were some days/weeks where I had more time to study and/or complete assignments and other days/weeks where I had little or no time. I also liked the format of blackboard. First-time user and did fine with it.
