I am wondering if I should enroll in Biology first or start my Anatomy class. I don't have much science experience....but I know I can handle the challenge. I'm just curious. Nursing is a second... Read More

    If you do not feel you need the biology you should look into your schools policy as some will let you for go the Biology if you pass anatomy and physiology I and II.

    Biology for me was a prereq for micro which was a prereq for A&P.
    Same here. And my school made me re-take bio because the college bio I'd taken didn't have a lab. And it was a good thing, 'cause the first one was really a joke of a course.

    I had to take Bio, but I don't know if it really helped that much. The hard part about A&P is all the memorization. If you aren't good at stuff like Biology, then I would recommend that you take it.

    biology can be helpful in understanding some concepts in anatomy and physiology. It helps in the understanding of diffusion at the cellular level. Its not entirely necessary at the level of organ systems. If you must take microbiology it would be helpful in understanding glycolysis and the Krebs cycle for example. I did the two classes in reverse order and got an A in each, but there were a few times biology before anatomy could have been helpful.

    The above statement was true for me as well. Learning proper microscope technique and metric conversions also was very helpful in Biology - if you are required to take it with a lab.
