    Yes, I am almost done. When I returned last semester, I had 80+ hours from like 10 years ago. So I only needed chem, micro, nutrition, a&p. I think that's it! But now I have to wait to apply to the nursing dept. until I am in my last semester of prereq's, which is hard, because if I don't get in, I will have to sit out until I do. And I don't really want to do that!:roll

    at my community college PE is waived cause I'm over 25! How have your grades been since you went back? After I take all my classes at my local cc than I will have to attend 1 semester at Baylor Univ. to get some pre-reqs I need for Baylors Nursing school that my local cc does'nt offer..like religion, nutrition and a couple others.

    Well, I got a C in chem and B in medical terminology. So they are OK. I never had chem in high school, so I was pleased with a C!

    Ashemson, Microbiology started out as a hard class for me. Now, I am not trying to scare you but read till the end and you will see why I post this. AT mid-terms in Microbiology I had a D. I was so upset I went to the teacher and he told me that I might want to consider dropping. Hah, drop micro, no way. I had already dropped other classes in the past I did not want to drop anymore. Well, I devised a study plan, found a study partner who was just as serious as I was and studied my rear end off. By the end of the semester I pulled it up to a high B. I got A's on all the rest of the tests, quizzes and other assignments we had. It is all about determination. See, I find with me personally If I say I can do something and set my mind to it and say it every day I can do this, I can do this, I can do this then yes I can do it and I do really well. Yet, If I tell myself I can't do this or If I worry about it then I don't do so great.

    You say you are determined this time. That is great so you know you can do this. Keep telling yourself that.

    As far as nutrition that was the easiest A I ever made. I was already so much into nutrition to begin with. Even for those who was not into nutrition it was still easy. Don't get me wrong you still have to study but if you study then you will do good.

    What helped me in both microbiology and nutrition was flash cards and LOTS of them.

    Good luck.

    Ash, even though I am only starting LPN this Aug. I have already taken Micro at my local college. You didn't mention if you have to take the micro lab. I found this to be a fun class. I have decided Micro is there to teach us to.....wash, wash, wash, wash, wash our hands all the time. Trust me, if I can pass this class, I know you can! Debbielynn

    Yes, I have a lab also. And so many replies have mentioned how fun they thought the class was, so that makes me feel alot better! Thanks!

    Nutrition wasn't bad, just boring, I thought. I got an A. Micro was fascinating, but I should've studied harder-I got a B.
