STUDENT STUDY PLAN FOR SUCCESS: I would like to encourage you to adopt a study plan to increase your chances of success in this course. BIO54G,H, I and J are difficult courses (especially for students who have never taken anatomy or physiology before) primarily because of the pace of the course. Here are some comments or tips from successful students have taken the BIO54 series.
