How's Micro through Rio? Is there any way to tell if I'd succeed in it by taking it online vs. classroom?
I've taken Chem through there; earned an A even. So I obviously have no trouble self-teaching. On the flip side I attempted A&P1 through them and dropped it two lessons in. I found it absolutely unbearable. Just........got too bogged down in the details iykwim. I now love the classroom A&P1, where I get stories and examples of different diseases or processes as they relate to concepts being covered. This subject matter just seems to click better for me by taking it in person.
If I opt to wait to take Micro in the classroom, the earliest I could do so would be Spring 2008. (For childcare reasons, I'm only able to take Saturday courses, which Gateway appears to offer semesterly for the big 4 nursing prereq courses. And I'll be taking Saturday A&P2 Fall 2007.) Obviously that further delays my application into the nursing program.
I sometimes think I should just take Micro through Rio and be okay with passing (I tend to concern myself with getting A's, which I'm not sure I could pull off with Micro online). Will I really use Micro in nursing school
to any heavy extent? What exactly could Micro be compared to -- iow, what percentage of general Bio, Chemistry, A&P, Nutrition, etc. does it encompass?

Oh, one more thing. A friend of mine took Micro through Phoenix college online. She said it was a breeze. Maybe that is an option for you?
Huh. I didn't know anyone else offerred it online. I'll have to look into it. I wonder how or why it would be easier to take it online through PC vs. Rio?
eta: Doesn't look like PC has offerred Micro online for the past year at all.
They do A&P online though. Are you sure it wasn't that which your friend took?
