    Hey, I'm a pre-med in my first semester of my first year of college. I'll be taking anat and phys II this coming semester (we can take it in whichever order we want, it's just divided into different systems). I took anat and phys in high school and we did the whole cat thing. How does college anat and phys compare with high school? Is it extremely hard to memorize everything?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Hey, I never had those classes in high school and I got a "B" in Anatomy and Physiology this past Spring. So if I can do it anyone can. It is alot of memorization in Anatomy but its easier if you understand what all the terms actually mean. In Physiology you really need to understand how the systems work, instead of memorizing.Good Luck..

    I had A&P in high school and I have it now in college (3rd year).
    What you need to memorize is really dependant on what the professor wants you to know.
    The Physiology is comprehension. Know WHY and HOW those things happen.
    With the anatomy part...yeah...study study study.
    Alot will be memorization, but again, if you know the physiology, the anatomy flows right along and is easy to remember.


    Best of luck to you!
