    For me, pharmacology was harder. In A&P, I could make sense out of each of the body systems we were talking about in class. It was very straight forward to me, and I understood the material. Pharm on the other hand was a lot of memorization like what is the mechanism of action of this drug, what is the therapeutic level of this... and so on and so forth. I struggled a lot in that class. But I know some of my classmates excelled in that class and made and A. So it all depends on who you are. Good luck to you this semester

    Pharmacology was definitely harder. A&p is ok because it actually makes sense. The body is very logical. But pharmacology is just a bunch of long drug names, genetic and name brand, that you will never remember. There are only a few drugs that will actually stick out in your mind until you deal with them on a daily basis.

    Pharmacology because it is what I know the least of. I've been tearing through the Micromedex though!

    Pharmacology, hands down. I did very well in both, but Pharmacology was much harder. It started us on the critical thinking path and my A & P was more memorization.

    Pharm was by far hands down the hardest. I really liked A&P 1, 2 it was good and my instructor made it fun .

    Pharmacology was insane! At first the book even felt like it was in a different language! But it's doable! I managed to pass with an A good luck!

    I haven't had Pharmocology yet BUT, I love A&P and I am a biology major. I am guessing that Pharm would be more difficult than A&P because you have to think critically, A&P is memorization.

    i had a patho/pharm course and it was a little bit harder than a&p. i didnt really have to think critically on the tests, its just a bunch of memorizing like a&p.
