Is it advisable to do A&P l in Summer 11 weeks class if you don’t have a science background? I’m getting my prerequisites done and that’s the only one left, but not sure if I should do that in Summer

Well, 11 weeks is about what the usual semester is right? If you'll have time to study should be OK. There's a lot to learn but my high school physiology class was 4 years before my college class and I'm not sure I remembered that much, mostly it was "oh yeah, that sounds familiar". But you will have to study. If the usual semester is 22 weeks then you might have a problem.

Thanks, and it’s usually 16 weeks.just wasn’t sure if it’s enough time since I have no science background

By the time you get to that point, you should have a pretty good idea of what sort of student you are and where your capabilities lie. You also know what other commitments you have to work around. This isn't something that another person can decide for you.

If that is the only pre-req you have to complete, you might as well go for it.

A & P was the only course I didn't get an A in. It is tough. Doing it in an abbreviated session will make it even more difficult.

All depends on how much time you have to study.

I second that it's going to be difficult because of the faster pace. But if you read your textbook/take good notes and review consistently- and it's also the only class you're taking, I think you should go for it. Good luck!
