Thank you Woogy. I definitely agree. Is it possible to flag a user, so you don't have to read their mean spirited comments? Aside from the occasional I usually get excellent advice on this site.
I spent 2 years at a community college taking a wide-spectrum of courses (business, science, fine arts, humanities, etc.) and walked out with a 4.0. Community college courses may not always be "easier" persay, but they are infested with grade inflation. This is why community colleges are referred to as a junior colleges. Community colleges are usually used to prepare students for the university level courses.
Talk to pre-nursing students at UNLV -- a majority of them take their A&P, microbiology, and chemistry classes at CCSN because they are far easier than UNLV. The content may not be easier but the overall grades are incredibly inflated. I am not saying community college is inferior to the university setting, but one must admit that they are easier to achieve a better grade.
In fact, my pre-nursing advisor had said she recommended taking BIO 251 (microbiology) at CCSN because most trasnfer students from CCSN come in with a 4.0, while the average student at UNLV usually acheives their pre-nursing classes with a B or B+ and the occasional A-'s and A's.
However, I decided to stick with my UNLV pre-nursing classes and not go to CCSN, and although I have a high G.P.A., almost every student I know that transferred from CCSN are coming in with 4.0 in their pre-nursing classes.
Think what you want to think, but the majority of community colleges are HEAVILY grade inflated.
