    well, i have a good background in Biology so anatomy wasnt that bad for me, I failed the final and still got a B... for most its a pretty rigorous class, physiology is an even harder class. good luck.

    i dont have a strong biology background but i've heard its mostly memorization.

    also does it look good on college transfer applications if i have anatomy & physiology.

    the only reason you would take that course is if you are a pre nursing student. other than that, fulfill your major pre reqs, they dont care about those courses if your a history or math major.

    i just meant that A&P would give me some idea if i want to pursue medicine or stay with engineering. The reason i am giving a thought to medicine is because i have couple of family relatives, that are in the field. They can help a lot IF( and thats a big IF) i pursue medicine.

    Its not hard, in fact I find Anatomy very interesting.

    really?? i thought med schools wanted you to take anatomy&physiology?

    i'll take general biology this summer. That would somewhat tell me if should do something in medicine. after that i can take anatomy. If i dont like biology class then i'll just stick with my major.

    Anatomy isn't too difficult; like you said it's a lot of memorization. Exams will probably be multiple choice and fill in the blank stuff. If you can handle the math and physics for engineering, you can definitely handle anatomy with ease. You should be fine if you just read the book and take notes in class.
