FMB is certainly a much more comprehensive set of learning materials compared to FMA. Although it aims to follow the same structure, it requires a much greater deal of independent study from the student in order to progress through the subject. There are many topics that aren't covered in the lectures, and therefore I would suggest learning them as soon as possible so you can converse with the tutor in the practical classes.

FMB was one of the most difficult subjects I've ever had to study. The amount of content in this unit of study would be the equivalent of two subjects and what's worse is that there is less support in learning it. The lecturers rush through the majority of the content and will even skip some of it. I'd advice those who have yet to face it to keep on top of their work because at times it can seem very overwhelming!

The more challenging older brother of FMA, but is even more interesting and important. If you fall behind in FMB, that's it for you. Extremely content heavy but having helpful lecturers and tutors who do everything possible to make sure you understand topics helps a lot.

Like BIOS1168/FMA, this is one of the more challenging and content-heavy subjects. FMA covered upper limb and shoulder, and FMB covers basically everything else - lower limb, trunk, head, and neck. It also goes into functional movement analysis a bit more (e.g. analysis of gait), which is challenging, but interesting! Don't let yourself fall behind in FMB, or you'll have a ridiculous amount of content to catch up on!

FMB can be a challenging subject, especially due to the increased level of content in comparison to it's prerequisite subject: BIOS 1168 FMA but the information learnt is very useful and helpful especially as future physiotherapist, exercise physiologist, sports scientists, strength coach, personal trainer, etc. You do not just simply learn about bones, muscles, their attachments and actions. It goes into more depth, especially regarding function in certain joints and areas. Great subject, though a little hard!
