Bio before chem?

  1. 0
    My adviser recommended I take chem 110 before I take bio 160. Well I want to take a science this summer for sure and Bio is the only one offered. Has anyone taken bio before chem???

    Not me. I finished chem 1151 (fall 2012) & 1152 (spring 2013), taking bio 1230 this summer. In one week to be exact.

    So you did take chem first. Thats what is recommended but I want to take bio first! LOL If I cant take a science this summer it totally screws my plan.

    Lol, I don't see why it would make a difference which one you took first. But I guess your advisor knows.

    I have taken human bio, A&P1 and just finished A&P2. I will take chem this summer, simply by choice because i have been afraid of chem since high school . I don't think it makes a difference..

    I guess I might just wait and take chem this fall and bio this winter. Oh, the life of a working mother of 3 young ones! I feel like the time when I can apply for the program will never come!! ugh. Why the hell did I wait till I was 31 to decide to what my career will be?!

    Where I live most schools do not require chemistry. My only guess is because we take it in high school and A&P touches on the chemistry we need to know!? I do find it weird though that chemistry is not required. If I could go back I would take it simply because I would enjoy it, but I took physics instead...

    Why not just take Bio? Where I go to school you have the option of which one of the two to take. I would do it and get it over with.

    No worries, you can take Bio without having Chem first. I think Chem is helpful before taking Micro (understanding Kreb's cycle) or A&P (acid-base balance, action potentials, etc.). I'd take Bio this summer and then do Chem in the fall. I wouldn't try to cram Chem into a short summer session. It was hard enough in a regular 16 week semester!!!!

    I took em at the same time. Well chem was the last 8 weeks of the semester..so really half of bio was over. No problem.
