Have I lost my mind with this?

you can see the sample questions from Excelsior's UExcel exams for A&P I and II

from https://www.excelsior.edu/exam/anatomy-a...siology-2/

I just can't imagine trying to take A&P without a background in chemistry and biology

Our local CC offers a 100-level Intro to A&P with Bio 101 as a pre-req; but their 200-level Anatomy course requires Bio, and the 200-level Physiology course requires Bio & Chem. So I'm guessing your A&P courses is probably an "intro" course as well, with fewer prereq's.

As far as the number of courses; if you were a full-time student at any school, 15cr would be a minimum to graduate in 4 years, and 18cr is not unheard of in a semester (we don't even have to get advisor approval to take less than 21cr in a single semester). So no, that is not too much for most people. I think the main issue is the 2 lab sciences, which are just time-consuming in themselves (here, 3 hours of lecture and 3 hours of lab is standard for a week, so if your school was similar, that's 12 hours a week in class just for 2 classes, and then another 6-7 hours for the other 2 courses - that's a lot of time spent in a classroom each week, and then add homework on top of that).

But really, it depends on how much time you have to do your schoolwork, and what else you have on your plate.

this depends on many factors, but to be blunt, you should be fine lol.

a true full time schedule is usually considered 5 courses ( you only have 4 listed here and they appear to be LL courses you'd encounter in your first year of undergrad) if you are simply attending school and not working, this semester  should be a breeze.  

For the last 2 semesters my girlfriend  managed to take 4 courses at our local community college in addition to working 40 hours per week and taking care of our 9 year old son. she managed to maintain straight A's.

Life is a balancing act, learn to plan, organize, act, and fight procrastination.

If you are successful in this semester, it will go a long way in boosting your confidence to take on larger and more difficult tasks in all areas of your life, in and out of the classroom.

Not to be disagreeable, but it's not 5 courses, it's 12-15 credits - which depends on the number of credits per course. Two of her courses are labs, which are 4 credits (not 3) and I think the bigger question is whether or not a person should have a science foundation before taking A&P which is debatable. FWIW, having done all of then, I still vote a hard yes. But to each his own.
