Nutrition Fall 3 Session - page 2

by tinkerbell24

Is anyone taking this course? I cannot make sense of the format being used. It is difficult to figure out what the assignments are for each week, such as, what chapters are to be read. Does anyone have suggestions for this... Read More

    Hello all,

    I am currently in NUTR 1000 as well. Everybody seems to think it takes less time, but I am actually spending more time on studying the chapters. I spent two days, read the chapters, took the tests in the study guide, took the tests on the Cengage website, copied the questions that I didn't get correct.

    I basically need to get an A.. I don't really "need" to, but it will help out for my graduate school application. So this is why I am spending way more time on this course. Anyway, my thinking is that the test is going to be pretty basic multiple choice with little critical thought involved. I emailed the professor, and he said we dont' need to memorize some of the specifics related to food and nutrition content, but he failed to answer my question about needing to know the specific terms in the controversies and, more specifically, the consumer corner. I'm pretty sure it's chapters 2 and 5 that have consumer corners with full pages of terms and definitions which I haven't studied and, if I need to, will quickly forget after I take the test.

    I have a very good understanding of the material and feel like I'm spending too much of my time on the small stuff. Are you folks memorizing the terms .. for example, germ, wheat, bran, flavonoids, leukecine, etc.

    (As for the assignment #1, just go on the Dietary site, post what you ate for 3 days, click on 3 day analysis, then turn it in. takes 10 minutes, if that.)

    Im in this class as well as the music class. I worried about the exam as well. With the holiday this week I feel as though we are on a short leash. I just cant wait for the class to be over. Music appears to be very time consuming and nutrition is not bad.

    I end up devoting one whole day to the music stuff and get each module over with. Nutrition....not spending a whole lot of time on all those pre and post quizzes. If you did every single thing on the syllabus it would take forever.

    for the nutrition test - complete and memorize the study guides for each chapter. All of the questions come directly from those.

    Wasn't overly thrilled with my grade either. Guess I better start memorizing!!

    Anyone else feel like they are drowning in nutrition definitions? I think I had a dream about polypeptides last night. I take my exam on the 5th and then my well deserved break begins! Anyone heard how much of the previous chapters (1-5) will be on the test? I have been looking over all of it but figure I should focus more on chapters 6-11. Good luck to everyone!
