Anyone taking this class and would like to do a study group ?
I am hoping to take this class. Have you started? How do you like the format for exams? I would like to find out more about the class before I agree to pay the $715. Thank you for any help.
i started a few weeks ago...you have 12 chapters , a quiz and a writing assingment with each chapter, one week to complete and upload you can take long if you like but a week is what they want. there is no book just slides from there professor, which cover what is on the quiz....pretty simple
How was the Biochemistry course with CalCampus?
I'd love to get some feedback on this course. What did you think of it? I've reached out to CalCampus, as I'd like to ask them a few questions, but they've yet to call me back.
The main things I'd like to know:
- grade breakdown: chapter exams, midterms, final, discussion, busy work, etc
- approximately how much time you spend on it? And if you don't mind sharing, are you taking it while working (part or full-time), or along with a full course load. As I understand it, you get 12 weeks to complete, could be difficult depending on outside commitments
- give it a difficulty rating from 1-10, 10 being extremely toughest
- how long you get to take exams (per sitting, ie minutes per test, not days to complete a given test).
I'm new here, and don't yet have the ability to private message. I feel like I'm in a time crunch. I'm a real human, just changed careers, was admitted to nursing school a few weeks ago, and need to complete a biochem class by May. Between now and then I'm working as a CNA, and am moving out of state.
If you are able to answer any of my questions publicly or via message, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks so much,
This class is super easy...your high school chem was probably harder.
The class has about 12 units; each unit consists of power points, quiz and questions you answer about the sections. All answers are in the PowerPoint. There is a midterm that you do at your own pace, no time limit and final same thing. You also have a presentation due at the end of the units which consist of you picking a topic and arranging the power point's to answer a certain question from a topic you have covered. On a scale of 1 to 10 10 being hardest I would say a 4. If you have already taken A&P or other college level science classes this should be a breeze.
Thanks a ton!
Hi Lvnrnmd2be, I see that you have take courses at EduKan I was going to PM you but I do not have the ability to because I do not have enough posts.
If you have taken Micro with Edukan can you please explain the format to me? I see very old post that say a proctored lab experience is required but Im not sure if that is the case anymore. I would really like to complete this all at home.
Thank you for you help.
I love Edukan. Micro was ok ....you have a quiz, lab with every chapter and final, midterm. The exams are not proctored but they do have a online validation system. Basically like having a PIN you enter before taking the test. The online lab gets some getting used to. but overall it is a good class. a lot of info , so you have to say on top of it .
I just finished microbiology at edukan. Busy class and an online lab, but it was doable. The lab took me awhile to 'master' it but once I did it was fine. I took it with JW as we cannot say professors name online I guess. It was better than doing it in a 15 week class and the professor was helpful, he always answered questions and was very helpful. Glad i took it and got it over with.
lvnrnmd2be , woodsyny,
Thank you very much! Ill be taking my prereqs here. These schools are way cheaper than the CC's here oddly. Im working on my bachelors via distance learning at Western Governors University for Health Informatics and it is very intensive. My A&P there even had an at home lab so Im sure ill be able to do these classes.
Thanks so much for the help
**forgot to add. I want to sign up for session 2 Micro. Is the payment due at registration and are we allowed to set up a payment plan?
Yes payment is due when you register. I don't know if there is payment plans. You have to choose a college for your transcripts to go through, I choose Colby as some of the others wanted pre req's. I know confusing. Take JW. I did the 8 week micro
I also have been doing electives at western oklahoma university. They just had 3 sessions of 10 day intercessions. 3 credits in 10 days. I took anthropology and nutrtion. They are regionally accredited and think they will offer 10 day intercessions this summer again. Less than $400 for a 3 credit class during their intercession
