Did you take general biology or human biology?


I am trying to decide on which class I should take. I am taking bio so I can pass the HESI. The problem is there is not as many human biology classes as there are general bio classes :(. Of course all the human bio classes are conflicting with my schedule!! Do you guys think general bio will be good enough to pass the hesi?

One or the other should be a pre-req requirement for your program anyways. So check with the program you are applying to and take the one that's actually required for your program.
