    This was a fantastic course! I really enjoyed the content of the textbook (I rented it from Amazon but I wish I was actually keeping it!). The review activities in the book were very helpful. I had taken Anatomy and Physiology 1 prior to this course, so some of the things were familiar to me. The majority of the course is just understanding what word is represented by the latin or greek form--it's surprisingly easy since it's all very logical and many of the root words are things that we use in our everyday vocabulary. Overall, a very enjoyable course!

    Reasonably well designed course. I felt some of the review exercises were a little diffuse, focusing on general healthcare knowledge rather than medical terminology. I supplemented my coursework with independent resources/texts. I wonder if I'd have been as successful using only the course materials provided.

    It was a very direct course. No secrets. But the term "creatinine" and "urea" at the tests should be considered to be reviewed. Also the " jumble" section, it takes too long to manage the letters, maybe a quicker way to make it happen when you already know the answer. Otherwise, the course was great.

    I really enjoyed the text that could be read as the narrator would describe each page. That was very beneficial to me and my note taking. I liked to take notes of what he said as well because it would show up on some quizzes on test.
