How much would it help to take cell bio before taking A&P? I know A&P is a demanding class and don't want to make too big a jump, right now I'm taking micro, next semester I'll probably take A&P.

Short answer. Nope. Both have different focuses.

I agree that they're very different. Cell biology is learning about the kreb cycle, plasma membranes, mitochondria and such. Anp is about body parts, the digestive system, endocrine system, etc...

Wouldn't be of much help to you, if any at all.

It might help a bit for Biochem or Immuno later, but very little for A&P. I can only think of one topic we discussed in both, and it was very small..

I took AP I way before cell. then i took AP II right after cell.... i didn't think it is a necessity to take cell before AP. you'll be fine. aren't all biology classes connected in some ways anyway?

I don't know how it is at your school, but at mine I wouldn't even consider taking cell before A&P. Cell is a much, much harder course here. A&P is alot of memorizing, but really not that difficult.

To answer your question, yes it would probably help some, but not significant amount. I'd recommend you take A&P first.
