    Math... all maths. Mostly because I found them so boring.

    Chem. Mainly because I found it boring. Sadly, even Organic Chem was more interesting that Gen Chem! (I have a previous BS in Biology with a minor in Chem so I have taken a lot of Chem. Currently working on a BSN). It was hard for me to want to study for something I found so uninteresting. Hopefully you won't be like me in that way! I was able to pull off a B though. Some of the Bio pre-reqs are challenging, but at least I found them interesting. Much easier to study for something when you have a genuine interest in the subject. I have always loved Biology.

    Pharmacology was the toughest pre-req for me. The volume of reading plus quizzes & med math minimums of 90% or better made it a challenge. I was taking 17 credits that semester and Pharm ate up the majority of my time.

    I guess I'm in the minority here. Loved all the sciences and maths.

    Philosophy was the hardest class I ever took.

    A & P 2 was the hardest but one of the most interesting by far. Chemistry is also somewhat hard & very boring!

    You had to take Philosophy as a Pre-req for nursing school?
