Tarrant County College Acceptance Letters - page 4

I have officially turned into a basket case. Since I have found out that people got their letters around April 17th last year and that orientation is scheduled for May 4th this year, I have become... Read More

    honey, with 6 kids i wouldn't have a life if i was not taking classes..so i wouldn't know the difference. but it is one of those things i committed the entire 6 weeks to and got in the book ,became all about the subject and before i knew it it was over. chem was more challenging ,i took the book to the bathroom during that class... the hardest class i took was micro and that was at the south campus with the vet.. i got a b and let me tell you she let me know i was dang lucky to get that...

    It's so hard to get into those online classes though -- you better get up bright and early on registration day! I wonder when they'll start adding more sections of that. It seems really popular.

    I'm going to take Micro with Matthi this summer, so I've heard he's a good teacher. I'll just have to buckle down and soak up some major microbiology in just a few short weeks!

    i was always up at 6 am with my section numbers ready to put in. these classes were filled within 5 min.. you must be fast and then if you don't get in you must monitor and monitor until you find one. look the day they drop students for non-payment you can probably get in then... i am having to do this for a darn math class..stat's i cant get in an online class to save my life. i am thinking about taking at dcccd....

    txspadequeen, are you taking statistics over the summer or this fall? I just finished taking it at the Southeast campus with Costello. She is awesome. She explains everything step-by-step. I'm not sure if she is teaching it over the summer, but she will be teaching it in the fall. Do you try to take most of your classes online? I'm just finishing Nutrition via television, and I took Speech online last fall. I love distance education.

    i have to take it online but if by chance i get to take it on campus, ill take your advise. i will be taking it over the summer cause i plan on being either at el centro or twu in the fall... i took nutrition in 1994 but it was long before i was a nurse and had a good understanding of life so i made a c. i want to re-take the course to get a a so who do you reccomend or is it just one teacher for the online class.

    Sorry, I didn't mean online. I meant ITV. I took the TV Nutrition class with Blackman. I have an A in there and haven't found it to be very difficult. I watched the first two lectures, and haven't watched any since then. You have a review sheet for the test, and as long as you look up that info and study it a little bit, you'll get an A. You can buy all the lessons on DVD at the bookstore. When I started the class, I had satellite and not cable, so I bought the DVDs. I haven't even watched them. The review sheets are online with the course booklet. The ITV course grades are also posted online. So, it has been a positive experience for me.

    Well, I hope you enjoy your Statistics class. It's not too bad. College Algebra was worse. Anyway, good luck with your classes this summer.

    i'm in algebra right now and hope to get out with a c....but its my 5th time taking it. now i have taken itv history and made c's on both of those. it seemed hard and so much information to cover. i thought about re-taking those online and see if i can get a a... glad to know stats is easier than algebra...cause i have to have that class for any bsn program...

    I took stats online from TCC, and got an A in it. It was tough though, because the course was not well organized.

    txspadequeen -- are you still waiting to hear from El Centro? I heard today that they still had openings in the bridge program. It might be worth the drive to talk to someone.

    I am also taking Algebra right now. I was taking it last semester and decided to drop. I never had to take Algebra when I was working on my BA. I was able to take a different type of math, but that was a long time ago. Now it seems like most degrees want you to have Algebra, so I decided to take it while waiting to get into nursing school just in case I need it later when going from RN to BSN. This has really been a struggle for me because I am horrible at Algebra. I'm taking it with Mrs. White over at the Southeast campus, though, and feel like I couldn't have made a better choice for a teacher. She's really great. Her tests are just like her reviews, so if you can do the review, you should be able to pass the test. She also lets you use a notecard on the test and you can write whatever you can fit onto that card. She also gives partial credit if you miss something. I have a B right now, and I'm glad to get it considering that I have never been able to pass Algebra.

    I have an A in Statistics, and it has been easy compared to Algebra. Don't get me wrong. It is hard, but it just seems so much easier to understand than Algebra. Anyway, good luck with it if you take it.

    A quick note about online A&P for those of you who might be considering it and please realize that this was just my own experience and may or may not represent the feelings of other students who took the class. While it was a fairly easy A if you were willing to put a little time into it, it was pretty easy to determine the "testing pattern" and end up not really learning a darn thing but instead just memorizing answers to questions. When I had to take Pathophysiology in nursing school last semester, I really had a very tough time with it because I knew little to nothing about A&P despite having gotten As in both I and II courtesy of the online classes. Just a thought for what it's worth......

    lol, I took both Statistics and Algebra online and thought stats was the harder class. Oh well, I guess we're all different!

    Oh yeah, it is very important to LEARN the stuff in A&P. If I didn't just come out of it, I'd prolly be having a very hard time right now. I wish I had taken a medical terminology class, because not knowing that kind of stuff is killing me.

    i must agree
