Easy anatomy lessons: our review of HumanAnatomyCourse.com


A big thank you to the staff of Cheap Essays.net for use of this article! Check them out for any college cheating tips and tricks you may want.

The hype is real, but how good is the actual product? We ordered the home study package offered by Dr. James Ross’ HumanAnatomyCourse.com to find out.

If you’re in any sort of science program, you may have heard about HumanAnatomyCourse.com. It prides itself on being the easiest way to learn human anatomy in three days or less.

If you’re one of those nerds who sits at the front of the class and gets straight A’s and “never studies,” then this course isn’t for you. For the rest of us, this course is an extremely useful tool.

The package comes in three convenient parts:

1) Human anatomy and physiology
2) Pharmacology, drug dosage, and human therapy
3) Detailed illustrations, graphics, and references

It does an excellent job of providing an alternative to standard, boring textbooks. In fact, I’ve heard that some people use Dr. Ross’ course as their only textbook and refuse to buy any book that their professor recommends.

So what’s the secret method of instruction behind HumanAnatomyCourse? I wouldn’t say it’s anything revolutionary – there are no messages implanted in your brain and no tapes to listen to while you sleep at night. Instead, it’s good, proven, psychological science.

These medical professionals know a lot more about the human brain than I do. While reading through the package and doing the chapter quizzes, the learning just felt…easier.

The course seems to have an intuitive knowledge of what you need to focus on. I never felt rushed into learning new material, nor did I ever feel too stupid to push myself forward.

This ease of learning is what led me to give such a high score to HumanAnatomyCourse.com – no matter how good a textbook is, learning is something that comes from within the individual.

"By putting you in a positive mental state, this course gives you the extra boost of confidence that is so integral to the learning process."

Apparently, HumanAnatomyCourse was originally only available as a reference text for medical professionals. When they realized its potential as an educational tool, they opened it up to the rest of the world. After reviewing this product, I can confidently say that this was an excellent decision.

Put simply, HumanAnatomyCourse.com is the easiest way to learn about our body. Whether you’re learning for a college course, or just out of curiosity, this package is a great (and cheap) investment.

It’s currently on sale for a startling price of $37. As a graduate of my university’s science program, I can safely say that $37 is less than the price of any single textbook I’ve ever purchased. Considering that this package can potentially cover several science courses, it’s a very reasonable purchase.

HumanAnatomyCourse.com has great value, great credentials, and easy learning. Overall, a very engaging, thorough text.

4.5/5 STARS

How to get an online degree

A lot of people would like a perfect degree, particularly those people who have experience in crappy, minimum-wage jobs. These individuals feel as if they're within a never-ending cycle. Recently, there has been a flourishing of competitive, online universities which offer high-paying, high-quality online degrees.
Many people who start online school just don’t have the time to attend full-time classes, or even night classes. Put simply, online degrees are the most convenient way to get the job you want now. Even my university, a traditional brick-and-mortar institution, is beginning to offer “Distance education”, which allows current students to take courses from other partner universities online.


However, it can be challenging to research online degrees. This is primarily because many of the so-called “colleges” you find online are not properly authorized, and are just trying to scam you into giving them your money. Moreover, numerous colleges and universities don’t provide the individualized education as well as guidance from which true learning emerges. This is absurd, especially because the tuition costs for these online universities are so high.

The good news is, there are several internet colleges or universities that are completely legitimate, and will significantly improve your chances of attaining your dream job. I’ve put together a quick ranking of the top three accredited online schools.

1) DEVRY
Devry is the #1 student-rated online university in the world. It’s completely licensed by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Students have the option of pursuing an associate's, bachelor’s or master’s diploma in a number of different fields.  Many of their programs are specifically tailored to modern career paths, and will give you a leg up over a person with a more general education.  Like other online schools, Devry is extremely accommodating and will meet your schedule needs.

2) STRAYER
Coming in 2nd place is Strayer University, which is one of the top spots for online adult students. The focus is on intensive, group-based learning among professional adults. Since the average age of a Strayer student is 34 years old, you can be assured that you are working with mature peers. Among the three online schools we’ve chosen here, Strayer has the highest-quality professors. They will work with students on an individual basis, ensuring maximum learning. While it placed slightly behind Devry, both schools are a great place to get online degrees.

3) KAPLAN
Last but not least is Kaplan University, which is the best place to earn an online master’s degree. Often described as the most trusted online university in the country, Kaplan students enjoy great success in their chosen educational field, with a large percentage employed in their field of study within 6 months of graduation. This is largely due to Kaplan’s focus on continuing education and certificate programs, which are designed for responsible, adult members of the workforce who seek to upgrade their skills. As with all online degrees, Kaplan will fit your schedule perfectly.

You Laugh You Win

My friend started a new funny pictures website called "You Laugh You Win." It's hilarious stuff.



The idea is to start a collection of the funniest and stupidest pictures on the internet. Some of them are so dumb, you just have to laugh. Other times, the daily post will be a collection of the top 25 pictures of a certain meme.

Like the site on Facebook or follow on Twitter to get daily updates of funny pictures directly to your news feeds. Check it out!

Amazon Kindle

The Amazon Kindle looks sweet. It's only $139 on Amazon.ca, and I have a $50 gift certificate for the site.



Do any of my readers have one? It looks like you can transfer files via USB cord, but can you put any .pdf files on there? There are always a ton of ebooks on places like ThePirateBay and other torrent sites (some legal, some illegal), and I'd like to read a bunch of those.

If I can do that, then I don't see a reason not to buy a Kindle. I travel and move around a lot, so having one notebook-sized device would be a lot smarter than having 30 books of different sizes.

Anyways, here is a (paperback) book I've been reading this week. It's called Paths to a Green World



It's about international politics towards the environment, and it is very relevant to my major and interests. Well-written and informative. Check it out if you want.
