    We must learn IV stuff at some point. It looks like weeks 8 and 9 are when we cover that in lab. We might not do all of it in the first semester, but I don't see how we would get away with never...

    So far so good. I like my teachers so far and the material, but getting used to the reading load is taking some getting used to. All my organization is starting to pay off, though. I take back my...

    I hope everyone had a good first day. I realize I don't know if any of you are in my lecture or seminar section or not. Anyway! Speaking of seminar, is it just me or is the information we need for...

    I'm also nervous and exited for tomorrow! Everything just got real. I was also able to access the webstudy material(not sure if it's because I've already taken an online class or if it works for...

    I know we'll have to do the reading eventually, so when it gets done isn't really my issue. I'm just more concerned with the fact that they didn't make an announcement or note that they amended the...

    Have any of you started the reading yet? It looks like the list they originally put up on the group site changed and all the readings from the Potter and Perry text were removed for the first week....

    I got a pink/"raspberry" colored one. I'm assuming they can be any color you want them to be since they're going to be yours for however long and getting one that you know you can ID is a plus. Can...

    I checked it again this morning and it said it was on the truck and would be delivered by the end of the day, go figure. I hope it's the same deal for you too.

    Yes, you use the same book and the same lab book for both 109 and 110. In 109 you go from chapter 1(levels of organization/cell and chemistry review) through 18(the endocrine system). In 110 you...

    Thank you! I ended up ordering the ones that we're supposed to order along with my shirts and all. I figured I'd wait and see once we started how strict they were about the bottoms being different...
