I want to take an online biochem course before I start at WGU. Does anyone have a good one at a reasonable price?

Thanks!

Why not take the one at WGU? It is worked into the rest of your program, isn't any harder and ultimately comes out cheaper.

I just really wanted to get it out of the way before I started. It's not my strongest subject and I didn't want to start at WGU having to do something that scares me :)

It scared me too, but honestly it wasn't bad at all. The lectured recorded are great and there is a huge student support population on Facebook. Look for the WGU student Facebook groups and then just dive in. Whether you take it at WGU or somewhere else, it will be what it will be. Just take it as part of your program. It will build confidence as you get it behind you.

I'm taking WGU's biochemistry right now and it's really not that bad! It's a little dense but I've finished all but one module in two weeks with about 10 hours of study per week, have about 5 hours more for study and pre-test and I'll be ready for the OA I think.
