I think it depends on what campus you attend. Not trying to dispute the message above, but I've taken both A&P's and Micro at TCC. There was no curve. You got what you got. Now,that being said, a lot of professors will offer extra credit. Make sure you do it. It will help!! In addition to the sciences, I've had SDV 101, three different Psych's, an ethics class and Statistics. It's a great place to get a good education but you can't slack. If you do the work and keep up with the classes, you'll do great! Good luck to you!!
