has anyone taken the online microbiology at clackamas community college? was it fully online, or were there on campus meetings?
i have taken micro in the past, but it expired this past spring, so i have to retake it. any thoughts?
i completed bi 234 (microbiology) online this past spring 2008 and earned an "a". it is very intensive with reading, assignments and labs due every few days.
the common complaint is that mirco is black hole for time.
i would agree with this assessment. so if you can take just that class fall term--do so. earning an a is important for admissions.
with that said, the intensity of the course prepared me well for nursing school
. the program i am in is even faster paced than the micro work. it will teach you good study habits and organization skills. labs are done at home with a kit they mail to you. there are group questions that are completed online via clackamas blackboard. assignments are submitted digitally and tests are taken on campus or with an approved proctor.
i also took micro before, so the material will be familiar to you. don't slack off on the assignments you send in, as it is a big part of your grade.
