I remember when I was training to be a nurse. It was really tough as I was surrounded by very accomplished doctors, surgeons and experienced nurses and as much as I tried to impress them, I was making mistakes when it came to human anatomy.
You have to understand that when you are a nurse, doctors rely on you. They want you to be on your toes, be proactive and help them in easing their patient pains. Studying human anatomy and physiology isn’t easy.
Unlike other fields of study, here you learning about humans and it is imperative that you learn properly as mistakes in the field can have considerable effects.
So when I got my hands on Dr. Ross Human Anatomy and Physiology, you cannot imagine the sense of relief I got. Quite simply, it was the most comprehensive course for anyone on anatomy and physiology and for someone like me training to be a nurse, it helped me a lot.
But obviously, I understand you can’t just take my word right now. So since I have used this course and understand how it can help you, I am going to detail everything that matters in this review.
After you are done, you will fully understand whether you want to buy this course or not. And believe me, you will.
What is Human Anatomy and Physiology by Dr. James Ross?
To start off this review, let me tell you first about the course itself. Basically, it’s a detailed yet incredibly simple course that has been designed to help anyone who wants to learn about human anatomy and physiology.
- The course is divided into three components into three different DVDs.
The first component talks about human anatomy and physiology specifically and to ensure there is a complete understanding of the concepts and course materials, quizzes and self-assessment questions are included in it.
There are fourteen lessons in which the first component is divided. I loved this as I was able to meander through each and every one of them step by step. Each of these lessons is dedicated to numerous body systems. The second module of the component covers physiology which again is segmented into different lessons.
The third one will help you understand the complex medical terminologies that are being used in the medical field to make you right at home when you are working.
There are also tips and tricks included in this module to help you memorize these terminologies. The modules from fourth to seventh are covering clinical pathology along with a myriad of diseases that are often diagnosed in clinics and hospitals.
- The third component of the course is solely for pharmacology.
In this component of the course, you will find an excellent knowledge of drugs and their dosage. The component highlights the effects and the factors that you should consider when it comes to drugs.
Also just like the previous component, here you will learn complete list of terminologies that are related to pharmacology.
You will also be able to learn how drugs are utilized in different treatments according to their functions and compositions.
- The third component is one of the best parts of this course.
It has one of the largest collections online of illustrations and diagrams on human anatomy and physiology. So whether you are going to use these to teach or want to learn from them, these diagrams are a life saver.
Currently, Dr. Ross is offering a bonus at a small cost of $97. With the course, you can now purchase another component that includes some of the best research materials in the market.
These resources are unique as they gather tips, tricks and added knowledge that can benefit students, teachers, doctors, and other health practitioners.
Let’s review “The Human Anatomy and Physiology” course now:
To fully decide whether you want to invest in this wonderful course or not, I thought it was best to use the age-old “pros and cons” review for you. This way you will get first-hand knowledge from someone like me that has used it. So let’s get right into it.
Learn whenever you want to, stop when you want to.
Unlike other means of studying online or in training institution, the human anatomy and physiology course doesn’t require you to stick to the program.
I remember when I was working as a temp and I hardly had any time on my hands. But since I wanted to learn as much as I can, I was happy that I can do it whenever I wanted to with this course.
Compared to our conventional classroom environment, the course allowed me to study with immersive lessons that detailed everything easy for me. I believe Dr. James Ross specifically designed this course to help people like me who wanted to learn at their own pace.
So if you are worried about pulling all-nighters, you won’t have to.
Faster and better learning:
If you have been part of the healthcare industry, you know that learning about the human body isn’t easy. In some parts, it is incredibly interesting and you can’t think of anything else.
While in some parts, it can be equally boring. Also, it takes years and years of learning and practice before you can fully call yourself an expert on human anatomy.
But here’s the thing, when I was learning from this course, I loved that fact that I was taking in so much information and knowledge without losing it in a few days. I actually remembered the stuff that I was reading and watching.
This course that is compressed into 3000 pages helped me get hold of the toughest concepts whereas I was able to memorize easily everything. If you are a slow learner then don’t worry about a thing.
The lessons are designed such that you can pick everything up very quickly. They are planned in a fun, engaging manner that makes sure that the student can understand the numerous techniques, diagrams, and lessons.
The price is too good to be true.
After I was done with the course, I realized that it was probably one of the best things that happened to me. But what really shook was the price.
Compared to the knowledge and lessons that I got, the intricate diagrams and illustrations along with the full overview of drugs and their dosage, the price could have been higher.
But whether it’s part of Dr. James Ross marketing strategy or not, I loved the fact that it was so cheap making it one of the best investments I made to become a successful nurse.
The price factor is very important in my review as I believe that there are many that have to pay a lot of money during their course to become a certified medical professional. Dr. James is doing us all a favor by offering us something so awesome at such a competitive price.
It’s for everyone:
One thing that you will read on the human anatomy and physiology website and its many reviews online is that it is designed for everyone. Whether you are one of the best in your medical class or you are someone who is struggling badly in learning about the human body, the course is literally for everyone.
Each lesson is jam-packed with facts and figures, detailed diagrams and intricate knowledge yet it explains and teaches everything as if it is teaching a child.
That’s one of the most remarkable things about this course. I was learning some concepts as I had never studied before. It was as if it understood my pain in learning certain complex medical terminology and taught me as if it was my first day in medicine.
Okay, as much as I loved the course, I know that every review must have its cons. Though the course is great it did have some teeny tiny things that I want to highlight for your benefit.
It might not take days:
The main selling point of this course is that it will teach you years of knowledge in a few days. Though it did teach me a lot of stuff and I mean a lot of stuff, it didn’t do it all in a few days.
I think considering how well the course has been designed with its fun, immersive lessons and excellent teaching materials, you should at least spend a month on it.
Obviously, you might want to learn from it at your own pace but if you are thinking you can master it all in a few days, don’t fool yourself.
The course is indeed designed to properly compress all the knowledge for you to learn quickly, but since its human anatomy we are talking about, it will definitely take you more than a few days.
No physical educational books or materials:
Medical stuff is hard to study sometimes which is why we love to make notes on the books we are reading. Unfortunately, Dr. James Ross hasn’t included any physical books or materials with his course. You will have to use electronic devices to access and learn from the course.
I have the habit of reading books which is why I wanted to list this as a con. But a friend of mine who used this course loved the fact that everything is electronic and he can read it whenever he wants. So I think it’s your own habits that will dictate whether this is a con or a pro.
Should you buy it:
Human Anatomy and Physiology is a wonderful effort by Dr. James Ross to help medical professionals and students learn about the human body.
It compresses the complete knowledge of the human body in this 3000-page course that is wonderfully divided into components that further helps in learning and understanding. It is ideal for those that are struggling to understand the various concepts and terminologies involved in human anatomy and its care.
There are hundreds of diagrams and illustrations with excellent lessons that will leave you completely confident in the concepts. Also the self-assessment courses and tests that come with every lesson help you test and memorize the concepts that you just read and learn.
