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

    Yep, Lord willing that will be me in two years! I'm going to apply for the spring program. I didn't realize the fall program had summers off.

    Hi everyone! Have any of you taken BI101 instead of BI55? I am registered for 101 this fall, but I'm worried it is going to be really tough.

    Nope, I took BI55 because, it is cheaper (they charge for 3 credits instead of 4), and it has no lab, so is less time consuming to take. My class was 1 hour 15 min twice a week. Boom. Done. The book used in BI55 is the same as BI101 but with the chapters removed that they don't use (like on plants). The publisher prints a version specific to FCC. They really tailor the class to Allied Health students. The website that accompanies the book was very helpful.

    Why do you want to take 101?

    I wanted to take BI101 because I was looking forward to the lab. I just switched to BI55 for once a week. It fits a lot better with my schedule. Thanks for the reply!

    If you were looking forward to the lab, I bet you will enjoy A & P and Microbiology. Hope BI55 works out as well for you as it did me. It was a challenge but very interesting.

    I think BI 55 is a better choice than taking BI 101 or CH 101. Remember, BI 55 was MADE for people going on to take A&P and Micro. BI 55 for all intents and purposes was the 2nd chapter of my A&P book. Really helps clarify things when you move on.

    Oh no, it's the second AND most of the third chapter. Yea. Learn it well now to save yourself the extra hours in A&P. I started last week and I'd say it's at least 15/hrs per week. It's redic. And I think the lab is actually harder than the lecture.

    I'm in BI 103 now, too. I'm very thankful that BI 55 is still pretty fresh in my mind from this past spring! I was originally going to do BI 120 but a slot opened up for 103 after they dropped students for nonpayment so I switched. Very glad I did.

    BI-55 does seem to be really helpful to me right now! I don't remember much from high school bio or chem so the pace is good for me.

    What do you think of BI103 so far?

    Good idea. I think EVERYONE should take A&P before Micro. By the time you get to micro, a LOT of the things they cover in micro you will have heard before in A&P (cell structure, transport, cellular metabolism, etc) I also like to save the best for last, and for me, micro was SO SO much fun!

    Good luck with A&P 1 girls! I remember how scared I was going into that class, turns out it wasnt so bad. Just do your readings, study up on your lab stuff. IMO A&P 1 was more memorizing and A&P 2 was more concepts. Memorizing all those muscles and bones............UGGGG! But now thinking back to how A&P was and how Med/Surg 1 is this semester.............makes me laugh really. Its a whole other level. You think that's hard.............LOL! Pay attention in A&P gals, trust me, you WILL see this stuff again! We did our class on respiratory problems and I was like, "Yeah, I seem to remember that from A&P". Save your books! Very helpful if you need a refresher, cause the nursing instuctors wont go in depth on refreshing you. You already took A&P, they expect you to know it.

    I am loving BI 103 so far! I have Dr. Mason who was highly recommended to me. I pray I can get him for 104 also. We've had one quiz so far.

    And yes, I was thinking that saving the books would be helpful for nursing school so I plan on doing that. I guess each semester we will get our "feet wet" just a little bit more. I can barely think about nursing school right now...seems so far away.

    There was a time in the not so distant past where I thought that too. Trust me, it will be here before you know it!
