Sequence of sciences
- 0Jan 18, '13 by TWierschI am a new prenursing student. I just started Biology and will be starting sociology Monday. The classes are in accelearated 8 week formats. I am finding already that the Biology is a lot of work.
Anyway, I was wondering about the sequence of classes and feel like maybe chemistry would have been best to start with because Biology so far seems like mostly chemistry.
But, I am in it now so I was wondering about the other sequence of science classes. I plan to take chemistry alone. What would you take in what order out of Biology, chemistry, A & P 1 and 2, and microbiology? Would you take microbiology before chemistry or even A&P? I want to get a really good understanding of these classes and feel like chemistry would have been best to start with, but it is too late for that.
- 0Jan 18, '13 by Compassion_xGeneral biology wasn't required with my program. I took chem, micro, a&p1, a&p 2 (all different semesters). Some people recommend taking micro after a&p, but I found it worked better for me to take micro first (although it was the only C I've gotten in 5 full semesters).
- 0Jan 18, '13 by StephalumpI'd take it in the order you listed.
Bio, Chem, A&P and 2, and then Micro.
I don't think the order really matters all that much to be honest, although we were required to take at least the first half of A&P before Micro. You'll find redundant information along the way, but it'll be just that much more cemented in your brain

Chemistry before physiology
Chemistry before micro
Either physiology before micro, which will help with micro
Or micro before physiology, which will help with physiology
(there is no one right answer to these two)
Don't worry about the Biology. Yes, chemistry may have helped some but probably not more than having the chemistry be more recent when when you take physiology and micro.
