    The school that I'm currently attending only offers Anatomy (with lab) and physiology separately.
    I want to take the PCAT during my junior year, and due to schedule complications, will not be able to take both before the exam.

    For those who have taken the PCAT; would you recommend anatomy over physiology, or vice versa? Why?

    Thank you :)

    Everyone has got it right. Take physiology first if you need it for the PCAT.
