Hehe, well, they do teach the basics in undergrad, depending on your major. For a while, I thought they were the same class. But anatomy is basically straight up memorizing whats in the body, learning the names of every single vessel, nerve, muscle, bone, organ in the body, plus what supplies what, what innervates what, etc.

Physio is a much more interesting class in my view. That actually explains how everythign works, the mechanisms our body uses to get through. The main physio topics at my school are Cardio, Respiratory, Renal, GI, and Endocrine.

Good luck to ya!

For anatomy, pick up Moore's 5th edition and memorize the tables and figures. Then read through the "blue boxes" several times. That's what I did in MSI and it worked well for me.
