    I've only taken A&P, Developmental Psych, and Sociology through them. I'm signing up for Micro next week haha! I don't know how challenging that specific course is but I've found their science courses to be easier than the fluff courses like Sociology because the science courses aren't writing-intensive. The tests are multiple-choice, fill in the blank, labeling, etc., and the lab tests are open book. I think the A&P's are really easy as long as you pay attention to the material and answer the questions scattered throughout each module thoroughly, and I imagine it's the same for Micro. It can be time consuming, but it wasn't intellectually challenging for me.

    How was the developmental psych? and how long did it take you to finish the class?

    Hi,

    Did anyone take Ethics and Statistics with Geneva Portage Learning? How was it? Thinking of taking them with them

    I took statistics. I really liked the course. It was straightforward, and completing the problems prepares you very well for the exams.

    Thanks! Is it easy for someone who isnt a math fanatic?
  8. by   dfinefish
    It is not easy, but it is clear and if you work the problems you will be prepared for exams. I thought it was really manageable.

    Has anyone had these courses accepted by a nursing school in Texas? If so, what school/schools? Thanks!

    I'm in AP 1 and Chemistry, and the transcripts say "Geneva College", which is regionally accredited as "legit". Baylor and MSU both told me they'd take the credit. HOWEVER, some schools (TCU) specifically say they don't take online lab courses, so that's worth checking out. The transcript doesn't broadcast the online nature of the course (just mentions Portage at the bottom) but if a school specifically does not accept online lab courses, they may recognize "Portage" down in the subscript or be familiar with Geneva having an online component

    Ive taken a few courses through portage learning AP2 Chemistry Nutrition and Micro. I found all the classes to be pretty much the same lesson plan and then a test asking that information thats formatted almost exactly like the practice tests. The labs are also guided and pretty good as long as you take notes I usually print out everything to have handy. Ive gotten As in all the courses aside from nutrition where I got a B. The only downside is that you have to pay in full before beginning the course you can practically finish in a week ( you can only take one test a day) but I advise atleast doing a month to maintain the information unless you are in a bind for the credits
