There is a rumor in my school stating that A&P II is an easier course to take than A&P I. I (of course) am hoping this is correct, but I just don't know. For anyone out there who has already taken both A&P classes, did you... Read More

    I did better in A/P II than A/P I. I liked learning about the physiology of the body better because I think with anatomy, it's more like memorizing.

    I just found out that I passed A&P II this semester. From my experience A&P II was more challenging than A&P I. I do not mind trying to memorize bones and tissues. In fact, the little anatomy that we did in A&P II was the easiest part of taking the course for me. I enjoyed learning about blood, the digestive system, the urinary system and the reproductive system, but just learning all those extra small, minor details were mind-blowing!!! I will be taking microbiology in the fall, I believe I now know what kind of studytime I will need to put in. Thanks for all your comments and replies!

    Part 2 is much easier. Once you know the anatomy, the physiology falls into place easily.

    In retrospect, it was definitely easier. It wasn't so much memorization and more physiology as others have said. Also, in A&P 1, we were tested on five chapters a time..A&P II at the most was three chapters per test. It was still a lot of info, but easier somehow.

    I didn't think that A&P II was much easier, but I can say that I was more relaxed about it, as I was already familiar with the structure of the course. I got the same grade in both A&P I and II, but in A&PI I had higher scores on exams, because I was so anxious and I tried really really really hard to study everything.

    I thought that A&P II was easier than A&P I. It was just that you had learned the basics about systems in I and now in systems II it's just how everything in systems I makes all of the rest of the systems work.

    I don't know if A and P 2 was easier but certainly more interesting to me therefore making it easier to study for and learn. Made A's in both but if I had to do one over again it would be AP2. Just my opinion.

    I thought A&P I was easy because I'm very good at memorizing things.

    I had a harder time with A&P II. At least it seemed like I did. I did better on A&P II lecture exams, but worse on lab quizzes and practicals compared to A&P I. However, in A&P I we were offered a lot of extra credit...A&P II there was very little of it...so maybe that is why it seemed harder..? I think so much depends on the school and the instructor and how hard they want to make it..
