    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.

    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.
