    Hi g33kgirl,
    i wanted to ask you who your bio201-online professor was at PC and if you would recommend them, i took bio201 in person at PC this past spring and it was just overwhelming, not the work for say but more of the memorization of things, but yea i had to drop it. also this is a question for everyone if you could help me out if i were to take the bio201 online does anyone recommend taking bio205 in person at PC? or just take one bio class at a time. thanks everyone.

    Are the online courses at PC COMPLETELY ONLINE? Tests and everything? or do you have to go in for exams or proctoring? I know Rio does proctored exams...

    I'm also excited to find that the tests and exams for online bio 201 at PC are at home. I'm currently a stay at home mom with a newborn and no help so I was hoping I could do it entirely online. Can you pm with the name of professors who are great for this course and give extra credit as well?

    HI Kenmikeade -

    This is a pretty old thread, so it's likely the tutors have changed. However, I can tell you that although online classes are somewhat tricky due to having to be self motivated etc, I was in a similar position to you and it was ideal for me! As far as I know, there is no "extra credit" to be earned in BIO201. For Rio, it is online quizzes and then a mid- and final-exam that is in person at a proctored examination place. It is a demanding course in terms of the amount of knowledge and concepts expected from you, but it is totally do-able.

    In fact, I took my entire AA degree with Rio, plus a bunch of additional pre-reqs to get into nursing school, including micro, all my BIO classes, all my math classes etc.

    Thanks for your response, Apple-Core,

    Your experience with Rio sounds way better than all the others I've read in this thread. I actually took ENGLISH 101 with Rio and it was really not bad, but I did it all at home. So I was a little disappointed that there were 3 in- person exams for bio 201. It's much more convenient for me at the moment if I could do it online- exams and all. That's why I was excited to find that I could get that option with PC. You're right about the fact that the tutors may have changed because of how old this thread is. I think I'll just enroll at PC and hope for the best.
