Here's the thing- the material itself is interesting and I really feel like I am learning a lot. I do not regret taking the course. However, I feel that the course is misrepresented in that you actually need a stronger science background than advertised by Athabasca in order to do well. I hired someone with a Ph.D to help tutor me and she was having trouble with some of the material that has to be covered (particularly the online labs). Another person mentioned someone in medical school was covering the same material in my textbook. It's just very intense, but with a lot of work it's doable. I have no science background whatsoever, so it's probably a lot harder for me than for someone with at least some basis in biology.
Are you planning on taking it?
