    Could you please give me some insight onto Maths 114? I hope there is no threaded discussions! Is there weekly tests?

    No weekly discussion threads. It's easy. You have multiple "quizzes" but they walk you through it and you have 3 attempts to do each one. You'll be fine.

    I got an example of everything but the power point presentation while in this class. Follow the hand out guidlines for the power point. There are a few websites available for assistance and also call the help line or the tutor service that is provided by the school. They are a great help. If you have microsoft office/powerpoint on your computer, it is pretty easy. Search on the web for ideas.

    thank you!

    I actually emailed my professor and got the sample PPP as well. I think she wasn't sending it in PP 2007 format and that was the issue.

    I like Chamberlain over all but it is expensive. However, when I looked into Lewis University, UOP and others, they are all about the same price. Chamberlain gives ASN 81 credits I believe it is just for having your RN currently. That helps a lot. I had started in a BSN program when I graduated HS but getting married and having a family took priority. So I had a lot of hours already going into this RN-BSN program. I wanted to do the MSN so I can get my NP but I can't afford it right now. This was expensive. And I worked full time while I did this. It is tough but do able. I gave up a lot of personal time for this though.

    I started 7/5/2010 and I graduate soon. I have 2 more classes left NR449 and my Capstone. I graduate in October with a 4.0!

    Congrats! I don't know how people do 2 and more classes at the same time. I really don't enjoy the DeVry classes at all. I'm currently taking Sociology and really really dislike it. I think the 3 posts per week, plus the quizzes, final, bi-weekly papers and course project are just a little much. I plan on saying that at the end of the semester when they ask for your opinion. Next term I take economics, which again, I'm really dreading. My baby is due at the end of November, so I'm debating on taking 2 courses to expedite the process of graduating but I'm really scared If I take two courses at a time I can graduate by February of 2012 instead of August 2012. Any suggestions? I also work fulltime nights.

    The Devry classes are awful, so time consuming. I think you could take 2 nursing classes at the same time. Stick to one topic and keep writing about it, then you can re-use your refrences ans pieces of papers. I am in my last class Capstone and have written about childhood obesity throughout my 9 classes.

    I, too, am in my first class with Devry, Sociology, and it is very consuming. I am encouraged to hear that the nursing courses are not as labor intensive.

    Sociology is giving me a headache! I'll be happy when it's over. 4 more weeks! Then on to Economics (ugh)

    ECON is a time consuming class. I've been in the nursing class groove, and it's really thrown me for a loop. It's a lot of specific terminology that I have no previous knowledge of. I wish I hadn't taken it over the summer, because my daughter is home with me and I have to find a balance between keeping her entertained and spending time on the class.
