Need to take stats, micro, & psych elective...should I add chem on top?

  1. 0
    The spring is my last semester of prerequisite, I am taking statistics, microbiology, and abnormal psych as my social science elective. I have not taken chemistry and think it would probably be a good idea, should I take it with these other three classes?

    If you can handle it I say go for it! However you are already looking at a hard semester, adding chemistry will make it harder. Chemistry alone is an extremely difficult class.

    Good luck!

    Knowing what I know now (having taken all those classes) I wouldn't have paired micro with another science (I took it w. A&P I). Just my opinion, I found it to be challenging, I had so many bacteria, viruses, diseases, treatments, drugs, cultures, identifications etc to learn, memorize and do that It was hard for me to balance.

    I think I would've been fine had I not been taking 16 credits of math and science! But I really worked hard and still didn't get an A.

    Take my experience with a grain of salt, everyones experience is different, but for me it didn't work out as well as I'd have liked it to!

    Seems like a lot. If you are not married or do not have kids or do not work then go for it. But personally I would not take more than two sciences with other classes together unless i did not have family or worked.

    My other option is auditing the chemistry class, as I don't need it to transfer. I just think it would be good to go over it.

    Then Audit! Definitely a good foundation is chemistry will be critical to further courses and TEAS V!

    Auditing sounds like a good plan!

    if you've never had chemistry in high school before or if you did and vaguely remember anything and if you have weak algebra skills then take chemistry on a lighter load

    The "nursing" chem isn't like the inorganic/gen chem you need for pre-med which IMO is a lot harder. I think it's doable.
