    Hey everyone :)
    I have a question, I took Human Anatomy a few semesters ago and didnt do so well. So now its time to retake the class. My question is I took Human Anatomy (4credits) separate from Physiology (4 credits). Now i want to take Human Anatomy and physiology 1 (a combined course) at a local State college because they dont offer them separately, would it look weird if i dont take Human Anatomy and physio 2? I did well in Physiology so now i'm stuck on what to do
    Thanks

    might look bad that you failed it at a university and then retook at a community college.

    also some schools don't allow anatomy and physio to be taken at community colleges (my top school for instance)

    Sorry I made a typo, I meant to say I would be retaking it at a state college. Also I didnt fail the class the first time, I would just like to retake it to get a higher score.

    My question was would it be fine if I take Human Anatomy and physiology 1 to suffice for Human Anatomy? The reason I wouldnt want to take Human Anatomy and physio 2 is because I already took Physiology separately and it was worth 4 credits

    Are you sure that A&P 1 is really equivalent to A? Usually when schools combine them into one sequence, it's not divided like that. A&P 1 typically includes the anatomy and physiology of half of the systems, while A&P 2 has the rest. In other words, the anatomy is only introduced just prior to discussing the corresponding physiology.

    That's where my question was heading towards thanks for simplifying it! :) I want to know if it would be okay to take a&p1 as a retake for human anatomy even though that couse included the entire human body in one class. I also took physio for the entire body in a seperate class. I just don't want to waste tuition money on a&p 2 if I can only take the first half, and that would satisfy the retake for human anatomy.

    I was told by my counselor not to take the A&P combined course because most schools want the anatomy with lab by itself.

    If that is the case, I don't think it'll be considered quite equivalent. You should check with your prospective pharmacy schools. I say this because if a school only requires P, you must either take P only or A&P 1 and 2 to satisfy P.

    How "bad" was your grade? It might not be even worth it to retake.

    This makes me sad. Why is this?

    Some schools don't consider CC classes to be equivalent in terms of difficulty/rigor.

    Also, CC's only offer 1000 and 2000 level classes (or whatever your state's equivalent is). Sometimes classes are required from a higher level (3000 or above), in those cases CC's are out of the question. Pretty rare for that to be the case last time I checked though.

    Last spring I took physio at a university, I decided to finish up my other pre-reqs at a CC in order to apply earlier. If I were to take A&P 1-2 I would lose the Univeristy Physio. So I decided to take my anatomy class at the university and last bit of pre-reqs (physics/orgo2) at my CC.

    At the univeristy it was either orgo or physics, couldn't do it together since both classes were M-F.
