What is the difference?

  1. Will someone please tell what the difference is between A&P I and A&P II class.

    I'm registered to take A&PI in the fall and wondering what is the typical difference between the two classes.

    Thanks

    II goes into more depth about the individual systems.

    At my school there is no real difference between A&P I and II. They just split up the various systems into two classes. ie. A&P I covers Muscular, Skeletol, Endocrine, etc. and the A&P II covers the rest like Reproductive, Digestive, Urinary, Cardio-Pulmonary, etc.

    My school also teaches Anatomy and Physiology together. ie. you learn the anatomy of a particular system and then go into the physiology.

    I have heard some students on this board say that their classes are divided by Anatomy in one semester and then in the second semester you go back and do the Physiology.

    A one semester, P next semester is how I had it. It would have been better combined IMHO. Of course being taught by dinosaurs there were only 2 body systems the Eat and the be eaten.

    Mine was just like Colleens. We did part of them one semester and finished it up the next semester.
