- "Taking this course also helped me in my Anatomy and Physiology class....The instructor was very helpful with her input on the assignments.

- "Thank you for your comment and answers to all of the questions that were incorrect on my quizes, I was able to find the correct answers and the reason why the answer were wrong. This was a great learning opportunity." -- Daimon R.
- "The videos were very helpful they exemplfied the differences or points of confusion. e.g. the dorsal hand being most sensitive for palpation. In thinking dorsal as being "back" I was thinking the "back of the hand". But common sense tells me the palm of the hand is most sensitive to touch." -- Elizabeth C.
