Did anyone retake a class before?


I may have to retake chemistry. I have a C but I'm afraid I won't do amazing on my final tomorrow and I'll be stuck with a C. Therefore I'll have to retake it but I'm dreading it. Chemistry is not my subject at all. I struggle heavily with the math. I'm good at the concepts though. Next semester I'm taking A&P 1. My biology professor is horrible but I have a B. He lectured mainly about plants. I'm not sure how that will prepare me for anatomy. Is anatomy super hard? I love learning about the human body. I think it's fun to memorize the bones and muscles and whatever else comes with it. I'm not great at learning the nervous system and its functions though. Will I be completely lost next semester because my bio professor failed at teaching the class what could of helped us for pre-nursing students?

I took my a & p final today. It is my second time taking it because I didn't do well my first time (over the summer). It isn't a big deal (depending on your program) but try to get really good grades in everything else. Also, my intro bio teacher did not help me at all, but I still did great when I took micro & nutrition which I took the semester after intro bio. For a & p it is a lot of info so you must take the time to study it. Unfortunately I did not do that over the summer which is why I needed to retake it. Good luck on your final!

If you start reviewing the skeletal, muscular, and nervous system and take at least one hour each day to study then you should be fine. I retook A&P 1 this semester because I made an f a few years ago and passed with a B+. It's not an A but I'm proud of it.

I got a D the first time I took A&P because I had a lot of stressful things going on and retook it a year later and got an A and the D came out of my GPA but still on my transcript

A "C" in Chem should be no problem at all, but I guess that really depends on your college.

This class was a prereq for Human Anatomy at my college.
