    Is it necesary to take anatomy before taking physiology. At school it is a pre-req to take anatomy first. However, I could get a the department chair to sign me into physiology. what do think do you need anatomy to get an A in physiology.

    I took a year of physiology without ever having taken anatomy. It was no big deal. Of course, it might depend on the particulars of the physiology course, but my courses required very little anatomy knowledge.

    If anatomy is a pre-req for that particular physiology course (note, this course will *not* necessarily be the same as a physiology course at another school), then that means you will need to know some anatomy for the physiology course. AND, it means that every other person taking the physiology course will have already taken anatomy and will therefore have a leg up on you. Get ahold of the anatomy syllabus, and an anatomy book and start reading.
