    I'm enrolled for Nutrition. Should be fun *crossing fingers*. I really want this A so I am going to study so hard people will be asking "are you worried about not passing?" LOL

    I just took this class and I got a "B". It was an extremely interesting course with lots of great information. One word of advice is to read your chapters ahead of time and do your projects flawlessly .

    Each class will be different cause instructors expect different things. You will learn a lot. I hope you like it as much as I did. It isnt hard to spend time studying something you are interested in. There is some chemistry, but it doesnt go deep. Mainly you will study the digestive system and how proteins, fats, carbs, vitamins and minerals are digested and absorbed into the body. It isnt the easy class some think it is, but it is interesting.

    Hey All,

    I am going to be taking this class in January 2007. :icon_roll Any suggestion. Can anyone who has taken the course give a heads up of what's to come.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Count me in. My class is online, has 4 tests, 2 activities each week and a semester long project. Actually looking forward to it though!

    My class is online too. Except we have a quiz for each chapter (20 chapters-and actually more like 3 quizes for each chapter--a quiz, matching, and fill in the blank!), 4 discussion topics (mini assignments), and a personal dietary analysis project. It's way more work than I anticipated! The book is almost 700 pages!

    What book do you have for the class? Ours is "Nutrition: Concepts and Controversies, 10th ed"

    I'm also using the Understanding Nutrition, 10th ed. and taking it online. So far the teacher seems really nice (she has great reviews at ratemyprofessor.com) and although there's a chapter quiz every week, it's open book. This is my last prereq!

    The textbook that I am using is: Nutrition: An Applied Approach, 2nd Custom Edition for Tulsa Community College, By Janice Thompson and Melinda Manore

    We took our first test on Wednesday, she posted the grades today, my prof said, "I am very sad...". Well, I looked at my grade and I was disappointed an 87, then I saw the class average a 68.5. OUCH! That test was really hard- harder than I thought apparently. And I came out thinking it was hard.

    Anyone else's class harder than they had thought?
