Frederick Community College? - page 5

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

    We have a lecture quiz and a lab test every week. This is also the first week of the physio x or whatever it is. It is supposed to take 1-2 hours, and that's in addition to everything else. So far the tests haven't been to bad though. Some are tricky though!

    Thank you to the person who recommended Professor Dormo for BI55 (I don't remember who specifically). I'm taking his class now and really like it!

    What is physio x? Do you have to do it outside of the regular class time?

    I think we both recommended him. He is also my lab teacher for AP1. He is good, I like him. Oh and yes pysio x is a lab that we do outside of class and lab time. In addition to regular lab. Lot of work!

    Does anyone know how difficult Medical Terminology is? Would I be crazy to add it to my other five classes this fall? I have a 2 year old, but I don't work.

    Oh sorry, I think I missed this. Yes, it's an additional lab experiment. IT took me forever, I felt it was sort of a time suck.

    As a nurse for the past 13 years and a mentor at FMH to the FCC students, I just want to say Good Luck and hope you do well. I think nursing school was some of the toughest times in my life. But you can do it!

    I haven't taken it yet, but yes, that sounds quite crazy! Play with your baby instead! They offer it during the Jan term so I am thinking about taking it then.

    I only do school work while he is asleep I may take it during the JTerm too. I still have to take group discussion so I might fit that in during the summer with A&P2 if I don't take it during the jterm.

    I took Group Discussion last Jan term with Kathy Brooks. She was fantastic!!!! It was time consuming, but I was very glad to get the class done in two weeks. It was four hours a day, plus we had to meet with our group to discuss and plan our projects after class.

    How much work outside of class do you think there was? How many reports or whatever did you have to do? Sounds tempting. Usually I would never think of doing a j-term class but it might work for group discussion.

    Well, if I had known how much time outside of class I was going to have to spend on group projects, I might not have attempted it. It ended up being okay, but I was not prepared going into it. It was worth it, though.

    I took it from 9 am - 12:45 pm. They also offered a 1-4:45 and a 5-8:45 pm. There were two group projects, one where each group picked a chapter from the book to give a presentation on to the class (our group did a skit on "Roles in Groups", another did a game show, another did mini speeches, etc.) so that has to be planned and practiced. She really looked for equal participation.

    The other project the groups did was coming up with an idea for a new business in Frederick and planning it. Planning a business sounds like a very time consuming undertaking, but that is the point of the group. Each person is assigned one aspect of it, researches it, and writes up something for the presentation (advertising, location, etc.) Every group in our class added a "commercial" to their presentation although it was not required. They were fun to watch.

    Groups either came in early, like 8 am, and met before class, or stayed after class for however long they needed. You have to split up the work and assign something to each person that they are responsible for for your presentation.

    There were two papers to write, one by yourself and one as a group (again, each person taking a section, one person had to combine each contribution to make it look like one continuous paper). The tests were not hard, she gives really good examples to follow along with the chapters to help you remember the info.

    So, it really was a lot, but hey, it's for two little weeks and you're done with a whole semester. Plus, she made the class so enjoyable, I wished I could have had her for something else, too.
