A solid grounding in A&P II. Understand how the systems and their various components function and interact will allow you to tease out answers.

I agree with emtb2rn...think about the thyroid for example, what is its purpose? Now what if you had "too much thyroid" (hyper)? Too little? What symptoms would arise in these cases?

Here is a thread with some great links:

You might benefit from review of core content. HURST has a great review plan that really helps because the "why" of everything covered is provided. Good luck.
