I'm hoping someone here has some advice they might be able to share with me. I'm planning on applying to school in the fall. Unfortunately, my sciences are now over 10 years old so I decided to do UNE's online organic chemistry class. I've never had much trouble with chemistry before so I thought it would be fine. I was wrong. I am having such a difficult time in this course. I feel like it's too abstract for my brain (I do much better when I'm able to visualize). At the rate I am going, I'll end up with a C in the course. I've been doing well on the labs, but averaging Cs on the quizzes. I only have 4 more weeks to go, and I know the final counts for most of the grade. I feel like a lot of the quiz questions are coming out of left field. I can't find the answers in the book or in his lecture. The prof has been very helpful when I've emailed him after the quizzes, but that's obviously a little too late. I really want to try to pull my grade up on the final. I would be so grateful to anyone who took this course who can give me some tips. Thank you so much.
I was just enrolled in the online microbiology with UNE and felt that (like one of the other posts here) the quizzes were set up on topics that were not covered. I find the book to be alright, but the quizzes really don't seem to go together. In the end I had multiple student portal issues as well and needed ever day in order to complete. I ended up withdrawing from the course yesterday (within my first 14 days)
I'm sure that UNE is a great school, but the online programs just don't seem to be consistent with the materials provided.
Best of luck!
