Has anyone taken Micro at TCC? I was wondering how many chapters they test you on at a time? I got my book and started studying to get my feet wet, but now I'm scared. There is so much info in just one chapter and it is so foreign to me. I'm scared I will end up with a C and I know that really sucks if I want to be a nurse. This class is making me think about other career options. I don't want to give up so early but I'm so afraid of sucky at school and not getting into a nursing program.
RELAX! I am retaking it.............really sucks I had a 96 average in the class. I had to go to New Mexico on a family emergency and was unable to finish. I had Carrington at SE campus and she was great. I am taking it at South campus this fall. They usually give you the notes and all you have to do is study them until you understand. You will be fine! What else are you taking?
I bought the notes already. So they are really important to study? Is most of the test off the notes so as long as I have them memorized I'll be OK?
I got a C in US history this summer and that grade has really blown my confidence. I got the C in a 3 week ITV course.
I'm taking a lot of courses with micro, that is why I wanted to study micro a little before school starts. I'm taking Statistics, US History, English II, and Micro. I think statistics will be pretty easy, not because statistics is easy, but because I have a great teacher. I had her for college algebra and she made it a breeze.
I'm taking Micro with Johnson at TCCS. So are you from New Mexico? I grew up there. I lived in Deming for 5 years and Las Cruces for another 5.
well i knew the notes inside out and that is the reason I did so well in that class. to me, it just wasn't as scary of a class as people make it seem. BUT maybe it was the teacher and maybe I am in for a big surprise within the next few weeks.
I am taking micro and a&p 1 and i am pretty sure i have the same teacher for each class. Anyways, yes I am from new mexico. born and raised. I lived i clovis, and actually my whole family still lives there. my husband and I think about going back............but who knows. did you go to nmsu? where do you live anyway? what schools are you applying to and what prewrecks do you have left?
I live in Johnson County. I was born here and we lived here until I was 8. My husband and I moved here from New Mexico in '98. We both went to NMSU and lived in the student family housing there for two years. I went to NMSU for one semester and then I switched to DACC, which was a waste of my time. I was only going to school to please my parents. Now that I look back I wish I had just worked to support my husband while he was in school and stop caring what my parents thought. We both dropped out and are now degree less. After I finish nursing school I want to put my husband through school. He wants to finish his degree in computer enginering.
I'm taking the prerequisites for the nursing program at UTA. They seemed to have the most prerequisites. I've only just begun taking the prerequisites. I have soc, college alg, engl 1, us gov, and tex gov. I plan on applying to UTA, SWAU, and TCC. I would like to apply to some other schools, but I don't think any other schools are within reasonable driving distance for me. I really want to go to SWAU. I know they are expensive, but the school is closer to me and they also hold their clinicals close to me. UTA isn't to far, but they hold clinicals far from my home.
So where do you plan on going?
Hey Ganeesee, I saw that you were interested in getting into SWAU. Have you applied and been accepted? I start there 8/31 and we have orient on 8/26. I am so excited!!

I know you are taking Johnson, she test between 4-5 chapters at a time. She takes her test questions from the notes you bought at kinkos. She will give you additional notes and she test you on those as well. Now let me see I say she test on 4-5 chapters but I took her summer 1 so it might just be less. Relax , even though she sux as a teacher it is very passable. Just pay attention to the notes bypass all her hoopla BS and you will do fine. She gives lots of EC. You can get a whoopin amounts of points for going to the science tutoring lab ,make sure you sign in though (in the lab). At the end on you final she will credit these points. I got 12 points on my final , that bumped me up to a B. Let me know if you have any questions.
Who is your stats teacher?

Did you get into the nursing school at SWAU , I thought about it but it is so expensive. I also am algebra phobic. Do you think they would take stat instead?
you kill me! why are we so afraid of the algebra thing? I almost wrote that same post yesterday. I am going to start looking into scholorships for swau. the more places i can apply the better!!
was this your first time applying swau? do you mind me asking what your prereq grades were? I have been looking into their program. thank you!
It's Haley. She is the one I took College Algebra with. She made it so easy. If you take her you will still have to do your homework and do extra problems to practice before a test, but you won't be lost in the class. You will know what your doing you just need to practice a little.
