How'd it work out for you? How did you do labs? Any answers would be greatly appreciated!

I took Anatomy and Physiology II online over the summer (what was I thinking?!) and it was really time consuming! Our labs were virtual cadaver labs through this CD called APR (Anatomy and Physiology Revealed) and it had a workbook (by Broyles) that went along with it. The CD went over anatomy and physiology system by system and correlated with what we were reading in the textbook. I learned a lot, but only because I really forced myself to learn the material. We had online chapter tests and had to take each test three times, and they were different questions each time. I took Anatomy and Phy I in a real classroom setting and learned a lot in lecture, so I only had to put in a couple of hours of extra reading and studying per week. Since I took A&P II online, I had to teach myself everything and it took much more of my time. I guess that is to be expected though since I didn't have to meet in class or drive anywhere!
I think it depends on your learning style. If you like to teach yourself things and can force yourself to set aside certain times on certain days to do the work, then I think you would do great in an online anatomy class. If you tend to learn the most from your professors and hate reading the textbook, then do not take anatomy online. I made an A, so it is possible! Good luck in whatever you decide and if you have anymore questions, just ask
