Human Biology and GPA Question

  1. Hi Everyone! I am just starting my first semester of science pre-reqs, and my human biology instructor isn't doing a lot of "instructing". I start the lab portion next week, so maybe that will help, but I was wondering if anyone had any text book supplements that helped them? So far, the learning is 100% textbook based, which is ok, but sometimes hearing or reading things worded a little differently will help me get the full picture.

    Also, I already have my Bachelors in graphic design and marketing, and a rather embarrassing GPA (2.97) to go with it. If I can get a 4.0 in my science pre-requisites at the community college, will I have any chance of getting into a bachelors to BSN accelerated program? Do most programs look at your science grades or overall previous undergrad GPA?

    Thanks, all!

    I have gone to youtube and typed in the subject I am studying for biology and find lectures there. I have found some good ones. I am an online student, so I don't have any actual class lectures.

    Khan Academy has been my BFF for things I need further detailed explanations on.

    Thank you so much for your responses! Usually a text book is enough, but the book chosen for our human biology course is so awkwardly worded I can barely follow it. Your resources will help!

    Thank you!

    programs look at both science GPA and overall GPA....usually the science GPA hold more weight and is more important.
