    I just registered for biomechanics, along with a & p 2, and am curious what to expect.

    Im taking biomechanics soon..I did take kinesiology...makes it much easier to understand if you did well in physics

    Im not a math person, haven't taken physics. I have to take this, and am really dreading it. A&P has been fairly easy so far. Im maintaining a B.

    no physics and you are taking biomechanics? is it in an engineering department? if it is, you are going to get rocked. they cover statics, dynamics, and deformable bodies here all in one semester

    I'm an engineering student and I have taken biomechanics classes

    I am a biomedical engineering major though

    Its required for all exercise sports sciences majors here. I think it will be interesting, but probably will require a ton of work for me.

    that's odd that physics isn't a prereq...it is for my human physiology major
