Frederick Community College? - page 3

Does anyone have any experience with the program at FCC? I am currently taking my pre-req's now and I'm worried about getting in. They keep raising the GPA every year, now it's a 3.39 min. and you... Read More

    Sorry-just getting to this! I can't believe how much work pottery is! That's crazy! I am taking PS108 right now, on line. And honestly it's a glorified health class. If I don't get an A it's because I was so bored that I wasn't paying attention. It's honestly really frustrating because the book actually has false info. or incomplete info. sometimes and the instructor is very nice she is just scatter brained. Half the thing on the black board site are from her regular 15 week section and she doesn't bother to clarify or change it. I even pointed it out to her and she didn't change it. She has misspelled words all over the place and doesn't really seem to care very much. I can't believe I actually have to pay money to take this class. It's a repeat from pyc 101 and most of it is just common sense. It's silly.

    Is it PS 208 (not 108) which is Human Growth and Development? I think I am going to try that during the Jan-term or next summer session. I heard that class was pretty easy so that is why I thought the Jan-term might be a good option for me. If you don't mind me asking for a hint of the last name of the professor, I will make sure I don't sign up with her!

    Well, I dropped English and kept Spanish. Pottery will be done next Wednesday. I have to do a research project for the last class. My projects are so bad, I don't think I will get an A. I have been joking for the last month that Pottery will be the class that keeps me out of nursing school. So now I will take English this fall along with Micro. I checked into Coffman's class (from previous poster) but his class was full.

    Oh yes sorry 208. It is pretty easy. I'm glad I took it in the summer term. But the exams are tricky though. She doesn't come up with them though, it's the same people that write the book. Her name is Spence. She's really nice, don't get me wrong just a little bit disorganized. Very reasonable though, just frustrating.

    You have to do a research paper for pottery? that's actually rather amusing. I hope you do well in the class!

    Yes, I think they have to have a requirement like that so that it can qualify for the Arts & Humanities credit. There is one test, too, which is this Monday.

    Okay, so my Pottery class is done! At least all my work is. For the last class the professor meets one-on-one with each student to critique their work and give the research project grade, and the grade for the class

    I dropped the 8 week online English class after Pottery took over my life, and was able to keep the online Spanish class.

    Sooooo...with all my newly found free time I am thinking I could start another 5 week class next Thursday. I am leaning towards Sociology 101, but Human Growth & Development is in the running, too. But I could take HG & D in the two week Jan term and get it done that way. It sounds like the easier of the two classes so I thought if I am going to do a class in two weeks, that would be a better choice.

    So, Jenniepage, have you taken the Sociology class yet? Just hoping to get some feedback on if it is a doable class in 5 weeks.

    Psychology is a possibility too. Argh.

    Any advice is welcome!

    P.S. Could you give me an idea of what the homework load is for HG & D? Sociology too, if you have done that one already. Thank you!

    Well, I went with the 5 week Human Growth & Development class. I am really glad I went for it. Erick Williamson is the professor, who was recommended to me by some other students back in the spring, so I was thankful for the chance to have him for a teacher. It appears the only homework will be reading the chapters plus one outside assignment doing an assessment on a child we do not know. That assignment and two exams, a midterm and final, will be our only grades, and the exams are open notes. Should be good.

    Sorry! Just getting back on here. How is the class going so far? I am almost done. Pretty easy class, kind of a joke I think actually. I'm really rather surprised that it's a requirement. I have an A and only have one easy assignment left and the final. How did you do with Pottery?

    I have heard about Erick Williamson. he is a good professor.

    Oh, well, my Body Mechanics class was pretty pointless, too.

    Well, today will be my third class and it's going well. Nice small class, maybe 10 or 12 nursing students. We watched a 50 minute movie last class on pregnancy and birth.

    I would take him for Psychology but he doesn't have a class during the time I can go. Do you know anyone who has taken Psych 101 with Paul Hunter or Lori Schroyer-Wells? They bother offer PS101 at times good for me. Alexis Kauffman has good reviews on ratemyprofessor.com and she is a possibility, too. I couldn't get into an early English class for the fall so I'm thinking of getting my PS101 out of the way instead.

    By God's mercy I got an "A" in pottery!

    I took sociology at MC and I really liked it. Mostly discussion. I re-took pyc101 online and it was a good online class to take online. Paul Hunter is also the allied health counselor and I think that he would be very detail oriented but probably a good teacher.

    Williamson was my teacher for PS 101. I loved him Good choice of a class to take over summer. I did Human Growth and Development and Psych 101 over the summer last summer and both were easy peasy, but still pretty interesting. Now if any of you are going to do the evening/weekend ADN program, just wait for summer classes with that LOL! I just finished up NU 210 (OB) in an 8 week session and boy was that hardcore. I thought Fundamentals was hard, well it was nothing compared to OB, at least the exams anyway. If you do the evening/weekend program, you will do OB the first summer, Peds the second. If you do the day program, you have both summers off, but you ALSO have to do Med/Surg 1 and OB the same semester.
