    How possible or should I say manageable is it to take AP 1, chemistry and a non related science class?...i know its only three classes but i am concerned about juggling it all....has anybody been in this situation? I don't want to set myself up for a big mess. With family vs school.
    Much will have to do with your support system in your home, or available to it. Your own employment considerations will weigh heavily; you don't mention if you're married to an employed partner? How many hours will you be able to free yourself to devote only to study?

    These questions are paramount to being able to answer your questions. Anything is workable with the right circumstances.

    Danad - You should be fine combining nutrition with another harder class. I also took nutrition online and it was pretty easy, a lot of common sense/common knowledge, and didn't require hours of work. Lifespan development was the same. I'm taking stats this fall, but I've talked to a lot of people and the general consensus is 1) get a good calculator; and 2) as long as you're pretty good with math you'll be fine. I don't know about the time commitment, however. Good luck with your classes!

    Mizmaverick - The other factor no one has mentioned is your ability to learn and retain info. You will have to resign yourself to studying being your hobby for the semester, but if you can memorize and retain info pretty well, you might be able to pull it off. That said, I would probably limit myself to 2 sciences at a time because they tend to be more demanding in terms of time requirements (in class and out of it).
