- 0Nov 25, '09 by Crystal74Has anyone taken Bio 205 with lab at Rio? I am really curious because I am expecting my third child in May, and really dont want to be on a college campus. The class I am interested in is only 8 weeks long and it will be the only class I will be taking. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
- 0Nov 25, '09 by aztovaThere are a few recent thread about Rio's online science courses. I took BIO156 in 8 weeks and it was a pain in the butt. I passed but it was annoying. I also took BIO201 in the 16 week format and it was equally annoying. Ha. I don't recommend taking the accelerated format unless you absolutely have to in order to make a deadline. If you have the time to do the 16 wks then I would do that. The classes are doable but it is a lot of work plus the midterm and final are huge with 4 essays on each. But there are about 30 or more essay questions that the 4 questions COULD come from so you have to be able to answer all of those as well. Very time consuming.
