Has anyone taken A&P through Rio Salado?

  1. Just wondering how difficult you found it to be. How much time did you spend studying and how well did you do?

    Thanks in advance

    I thought it was about as easy as A/P can be. I actually live in tempe and I took BIO201 in person and BIO202 online and I thought the online version was way better. I did pretty well (I got a B, which works for me ). I probably spent a couple hours each week on reading and a couple hours composing answers to essay questions, going through the CD's, and going through the study guide. I usually don't spend a whole lot of time on homework and stuff even when I take classes in person, so I don't know if that gives you a good idea or not. Our instructor said to expect to spend about 10 hours a week on the class but that seems like a lot to me. Now I am taking microbiology online through Rio and it is pretty good too!

    Check out Community College of Denver. I've taken A&P I & II and now I'm taking Micro. All of it is online.

    With Rio Salado, aren't the tests proctored, offline??

    Rio Salado College is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, it is part of the Maricopa Community College District here in Arizona.

    NICURNtobe, yes, the tests are done with a proctor (it can be a local one, you don't have to come to AZ for them). I can't imagine any accredited college would NOT require at least the final exam for a distance learning class to be taken in person through the college or an approved proctor with proper picture ID.

    I wanted to take online classes but my college requires a lab for all science classes.

    Puck, the labs are all done online.

    Amanda, have it your way.
