Annoying but rather easy

I would recommend doing PHYS20008 before taking this subject, as PHYS20009 is a whole lot easier when you already have a good understanding of the underlying physiology. You will be with the same demonstrator every week, which is great as it means you don't have to adapt to multiple styles of marking for your lab report tasks. My best piece of advice is to prioritize the drafts for the thermoregulation assignment, That way, by week 10, you will already have completed a decent draft of your entire assignment.

Relatively easy subject but take human phys before this subject. If Deane is still the coordinator, she is hopeless and more interested in her phd students then her undergrad students.

Also recommend doing PHYS20008 first, but if you do the two concurrently your revision for exams will overlap quite a lot which helps with confidence going in. The pracs are quite easy most of the time, the only 'stressful' one is when you do the prac for your 'big' report, but if your group is organised you'll be fine. If you don't know how to use Excel, you certainly will once this subject is over, because it features heavily in your reports. You may be asked to be a participant in your group's experiments over the weeks e.g. breathe into a pneumotachometer, take blood pressure, ride an exercise bike etc (but if you don't want to there is normally someone else in the group willing to be your guinea pig). Generally, quite enjoyable and an easy H1 if you write a good final report- make sure you devote enough time to it, especially by doing the drafts (its pretty much your demonstrator telling you what they would mark you down on, so if you fix it then you should do decently)
