    I am in the program and started last june 2011, I am having problems with them changing how they apply test grades and it is making it hard to pass. I just failed my first class in 5 1/2 years in school. Did you have this problem? They even change the price on the classes from first quoted.

    [FONT=comic sans ms]I am wanting to buy books for the program on Ebay or Amazon. Is that safe or will I have to have activation codes for any of the classes?

    I too failed RNSG 2535. I am taking it again and just started it today, but I also don't know what happens if you dont pass it the second time?????????
    That is a lot of money to be wasted along with your time if you don't have any other options. I too do not like how in the first few classes all of your tests, assignments, etc were all added up and averaged together.....as long as you made a 75...you passed!
    Now you have to average a 75 on the tests by themsleves, then they add the other classwork into your average after. I didnt get a 75 average on my tests.....I think I had a 73.5 average on my tests........so here I am taking it for the second time.
    They also used to just require that your final exam be proctored (pay $25 for someone to watch you through your webcam so you dont cheat), but now they are doing it to where all your tests are proctored....thats another 125 dollars on top of the tuition for the class.

    Tell me your views.

    I bought all my books through Amazon.com and didn't have any problems. Just make sure you get the right ISBN because some classes require the textbook with CD/DVD.

    Proctored exams?? Really?? None of my exams were proctored!

    Yeah....this is something new they started. Lamar State claims that the reason they "proctor" your exams now is so that you can immediately receive your grade upon completion of the exam when you press "submit"..........funny thing is......you could see your grade immediately after when it wasn't proctored. Anyway.....only my finals for my classes used to be proctored, yet now no matter what class you are taking......all tests are proctored via webcam.


    I did have a question for anyone that has gone through the program....or failed one of the classes.
    Are the questions on the exams basically the same if you have to take the class over again....or are they all different questions?

    Thanks.

    I am also in the class rnsg 2514. I just finished doing my assignment # 1 they are thesame movies we had in rn1423. The class is okay with me so far. Tho the previous class prior to this was tough two classes at thesame time. rn 1423 rn 1260. Thnaks God for passing those two classes with flying colors. I can't ask for more. Good lucl to all who are in the rn 2514 which just started last Monday June 25.
