    I take ratemyprofessor with a grain of salt. Many times the student giving a bad review didn't do well in the class. Who's to say why they didn't do well (maybe the teacher really isn't one of the better OR maybe the student didn't give it their all and expecte to skate by). If I see things like 'she didn't even give extra credit' or 'he didn't curve' I tend to disregard the review. I've seen where one professor has 50% of the students who despise them and the other 50% who love them. I've had teachers with bad reviews on ratemyprofessor who were some of the best teachers I've had and I've had ones with great reviews and I found them to be of the worst teachers I've had. Don't go into the class with the preconceived notion they are going to be bad b/c of the reviews. Give them the benefit of the doubt and give them a chance, you might be pleasantly surprised.

    In regards to taking Micro before A&P, my school has A&P I and II as pre-reqs for Micro. I'm glad they do it that way, I don't think I would have grasped Micro as well without taking A&P prior. But that's just my $0.02.

    Does anyone know if ALH 110 (Med Terminology) is offered at WCCCD Downriver campus?

    Ugh... Really wish they had everything in one campus or the same thing at all the campuses... It'll be wayyyy more convient for people in my opinion.
