You're going to have to work to get an A, but it's definitely do-able. There are tests every week, but if you do the workbooks for each chapter you'll be fine. The test/quiz questions come right from the workbook. You literally have every single question that could possibly be on the test.

DO THE STUDY GUIDES AND STUDY THE STUDY GUIDES. He is a pretty funny guy and a pretty interesting class. You must study and commit at least 2=3 days prior to the exams to study(: Not bad at all!

Lecture isn't mandatory but it does help and it's not too boring. He tries to make things more interesting with pictures and jokes.DO THE STUDY GUIDES at the end of the notes and you will be fine. The exams are based on the study guides. Not a hard class just requires some memorization. 3 midterms, weekly quizzes and in class assignments in the lab

Do the study guides. Do the study guides. Do the study guides. Everything you will be tested on is from the study guides. There are no secrets: do the study guides. A little monotonous at times, but let's be honest, it isn't easy getting stoked about robust australopithecines.

Books are a must- multiple study guides for one quiz (20 questions 40 points every thursday); 2 midterm/1 final- each question worth 5 points each. STUDY STUDY STUDY THE STUDY GUIDES and you should do okay. Funny guy, kinda monotoned, willing to help if you askk for it

Whatta bunch of whiners. Nice teacher, helpful notes and gives workbooks. Sorry, you have to study constantly in order to get a good grade in the class. Seriously, all the complainers should seriously think of dropping out of college. Save your money and go get a low skill job because college is clearly too demanding for some people's work ethic.

Professor Young Owl makes anatomy a little more interesting!Quiz every Friday and they are very easy if you study his ILN notes. 2 midterms and 1 final, which are not that bad if you study his notes. I would recommend taking his class!Study really hard for labs!

2 midterms and a final worth 500 pts each. the class is difficult and requires plenty of studying and memorization. Interactive lecture notes are a must (pretty much where his exams come from) but book is also helpful.

This class is really interesting. I loved his lectures. He have the most random stories, but somehow he tries to connect it with whatever he's talking about. He is the nicest science lecture professor I've ever had! His exams? Easy- Moderate if you study. He gives out the no. of questions per body system. Quizzes? Easy. TAKE HIM!!!

Lecture consists of 1500 points (2 Midterms & Final worth 500pts each). Lab consists of about 500 points as well. In order to pass you need about 1350pts (Lab+Lec). Book not needed. Just answer all the questions @the end of LectureNotes before each exam. Final is NOT cumulative! Lab is pretty easy. Quizzes every time you meet.

Class is 75% from lecture and 25% from lab. 2 Midterms and a final in lecture, so make sure to do well on those. Lab is time consuming, there is a quiz of 20-30 terms weekly. Lecture midterms are straight from the the Fill-in-the-blank notes. Answer and study all the questions and you will ace the class. Attendance helps to understand questions.

Quizes every Friday for lecture on top of the quizes every week for lab. Anatomy is going to be hard, but if you have the time and motivation, getting an A (or at least a B) is completely possible. Also, whatever you considered to be 'studying', throw that idea out. You'll need to be studying at LEAST 4-5 hours a WEEK for this class. It's crazy bro

Lots of info with weekly quizzes, but they do prepare you for the exams. He's a good instructor, nice person, has an off sense of humor, but that doesn't change the fact Anatomy is going to be brutal.

Anatomy is not an easy class. Young Owl makes it slightly bearable, but it's still difficult as all hell. There are quizes every Friday on chapters in the textbook and the lecture notes and quizes every week in your lab. So expect to be studying constantly.

He gets 3-4 questions for his quizs at the matching/multiple choice at end of chapters, rest are from ILN study guide (quizzes out of 10 and sumtimes extra credit, could drop ur lowest 3). midterms and finals are TOUGH. he likes to be tricky with options of A, B, C, D, or A&C... Lecture isn't that bad, worry about Lab, practicums are THEWORST!

YoungOwl is very nice, easy to talk to & friendly. But the class is HARD. You have to STUDY! 2 midterms & 1 final-all noncumulative. Get the txtbk! I didn't have it, and I felt like I could have gotten a higher grade if I did. He likes to joke a lot, most are funny but some are so outdated that most students don't get the references in the joke Lol

This class uses fill-in lecture notes and isn't too hard if you stay on top of the review questions for lecture and the text at the end of each section. I didn't really use the additional text book study guide and still did well on tests. Lectures may be a bit boring but Dr. Young Owl is GREAT!
