    I was thinking about taking this class and Statistics. Can anyone who has taken this class give advice?

    This was the most interesting of the 4 classes I've taken so far.

    There was a fair amount of writing and quite a few exercises. One kind of tricky exercise on inheritance - autosomal dominant, recessive, x-linked dominant & recessive - you were given the pedigree for each and had to label what the pattern was. Another required you to decipher a pedigree and its associated narrative and use the info to project the likelihood of Huntington's for various offspring. The most difficult (for me) exercise required that you re-write hospital literature down to 5th - 8th grade level (I think this is actually very hard to do). Here's the grading breakdown from my section:
    Discussion Participation (10 @ 1/2 pt ea)

    Check Yourself*(3 @ 5 pts ea)
    Discussion (8 @ 10 pts ea)
    Readability exercise (20 pts)
    Teaching Plan (40 pts)
    Mendelian Inheritance Laws (20 pts)
    Non Traditonal Inheritance (20 pts)
    Total – 200 pts


    *quizzes – you can retake if you don’t like your score

    Quite a bit of work but and some ambiguous direction but the TA posted tips and general feedback every week - unlike some of the other courses. There is also plenty of information available on the web or through the OU on-line library for most of the assigned topics, which makes life a lot easier.

    I think taking this with statistics will be a breeze. This was, hands down, the easiest class for me so far in the program. I was out of town for a full week and only spent 4 hours on a train one week doing my work for that week.

    This is a question for anyone who has already taken this class. Did your book come with a CD and/or access code that you needed for the class? When buying the book used at Amazon, sometimes in the description, it states that the CD or access code may not be available.

    I did not use a CD or access code for Intervention. I did use it for the Health Assessment class though.
