    Hey I took this class last semester, and towards the end they told us that we get a specific percent from MTI. And that grade will be multiplied by 4% to count as participation.
    My point being, don't just do the MTI for the sake of doing them, u have to get good grades on the activities.
    I had to go back & redo a bunch of activities it sucked!

    Monci - did you know that the flashcards are optional? I skip them and it saves time. Tests aren't bad at all, think I was overstudying! Two more tests!!!
    Yes I had to email my AC to clarify b/c those things take FOREVER!

    I think todays test (3rd) was the hardest for me. I still made a good grade, but not as high as my other two test grades. I don't deal with eyes and ears much in my work so I really didn't know the material. I spent most of my study time on the eyes and ears, and those were the questions I missed the most on the test.
    I have been completing all my MTI. I noticed for the first unit the MTI took me forever, but now it is really fast. If I fail one of the MTI's I retake it, but I am not trying to get 100's on everything. It is only 4% of my grade. I think my time is better spent studing for the test. I do think the ER MTI is really helpful for studing for the test. If I get a question wrong on the ER, I look it up and make sure I know it.

    Made it through the class fine with easy A. I will say that when I overlapped this class with Holistic Care of Older Adults that I did get stressed out more than I wanted to. Both classes are not that difficult, but if you are working full time and have a family, things start to pile up, at least for me (a lot of reading). I'm starting on Health Promotion Across the Lifespan on 4/8. The journey continues! See you elswhere TxMonci!

    The book is necessary if you want to pass the exams. You cannot take quizzes ahead of time, they open for a 24-hour window.

    I don't think it is possible to not have the text book. I didn't really read the test book, but I needed it to study the prefixes, roots, and suffixes for the test. You can take the quizzes and MTIs ahead of time, but not the actual exam. I think it would be best to take the quizzes a few days before the test and not way ahead of time. The quizzes help you prepare for the test.
