I am going to enroll in Patho online (HCR 240) my options are Rio Salado, Glendale Community College, Gateway Community College or Phoenix College offers a hybrid option. It doesn't say when the class meets for the hybrid portion of the Phoenix college class, so I am not sure if that will work with my work schedule. Does anybody have any recommendations for which class is better? I just finished Micro through Rio, which was not to bad, but the mid-term and final where typical of Rio, so I am interested in finding out any info about the other schools formats for online classes. What are their tests like? Do they require a lot of essays or homework? Sometimes with Rio, I felt like I spent so much time writing essays, that I lost a lot of time that could have been better used actually studying for the crazy midterm and final.
