Medical Terminology before Anatomy
#1
Question 
When it comes to Medical Terminology did anyone take this class and find it beneficial before taking Anatomy and Physiology. I'm taking it now and it seems to be a breeze and quite interesting. Wink

Yes, this was the first course I took in "sciences" before I took all the StraighterLine Biology courses (and all their sciences as a matter of fact, such as Environmental Science/Chem, etc). Heck, I did too many StraighterLine courses, some for fun. Anyways, yes, I recommend this course!
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Business & IT Certs: Cisco, CompTIA, 6Sigma/Lean/Scrum, ITIL, MTA, etc
Coursera Google IT Certs & Udacity Nanodegrees

Working on: TESU BA Biology & Computer Science
Universidad Isabel I: ENEB MBA, Big Data & BI, Digital Marketing & E-Commerce
Deferred: **Deciding on several Masters/PHD programs**

Biology can make so much more sense if you're familiar with common Greek and Latin roots. You're on the right track!

I agree - even if you don't take it for college credit (there is a free online class you can take from Des Moines University https://www.dmu.edu/medterms) I can't overstate enough how it will help with Anatomy class. EVERYTHING in the body is named based on some really useful nomenclature - so if you learn those roots, prefixes, etc. you can figure out names and diseases very easily.

Here's an example of what you'd learn in a medical terminology class

Myocarditis
(prefix) myo = muscle
(root) card = heart
(suffix) itis = inflammation
