    Ok guys... Here are some tips for first semester...TAKE TOOLBOX... It REALLY REALLY HELPS... The info u get during toolbox will NOT be taught by your professors, you will have to teach yourself. This is coming from someone who got a 720 on their math SATs and had a 4.0 before this semester GET A STUDY GROUP... Even if you have never used one before... You can thank me later...ONLINE RAGNONE STUDENTS: expect to teach yourself, pure and simple. Such is the essence of an online class. If you need help with concepts, utilize ------ or another IN STATE ON CAMPUS instructor... First semester is TOUGH but totally do-able! It was one of my most intense and stressful, but REWARDING experiences. Good luck to all of you!

    Anyone have any info on the toolbox book? I've been trying to contact the bookstore but I can't seem to get anyone on the phone!

    Don't stress about the book right now... Just pick it up befor your first day. It isn't really something you can study, it's mostly worksheets and step by step what ------- is gonna teach you

    Does anyone know what you have to do for the "Proof of Criminal "History Background Check (Precheck)" as listed on the checklist of the packet? I don't remember hearing what to do for this at orientation and I was just accepted last week. Also, what would be the best additional books to buy that aren't required texts from anyones experience that's in the program?

    I think when you do precheck, there is a confirmation page that pops up once you've paid and gone through the question showing that you completed it. You have to print that.

    Thanks so much! So is there a website where you do the pre-check at, I must be missing it I can't find anything about it in my packet.

    You will use your 101 books throughout all 4 semesters, so unless someone flunked they won't be able to sell. You can go online Craigslist and do a search. I am sure you will find them there. Good luck!

    PreCheck - Investigate Further - Servicing your Credentialing and Background Verification Needs click on student check and follow directions. I have heard that some of the books are going to change for 1st semester, not 100% sure though!

    Because I was an alt and picked late, my option for Nurs101 is #14- with an online pharm class. I don't do well with online classes and now i have both pharm and lecture online with the teacher everyone is warning about =( so nervous. Did one of the admin/teacher say it was okay to attend an in-person lecture class? because that is what I really need! Plus I signed up for the toolbox class-1030am-12pm. Anyone else? And is there ANY to switch out my class schedule for another???

    The teachers are usually ok with you going to the classes. I know a lot of people who did/do it! Just ask first!

    I heard from a friend who is now 2nd semester that all of the lectures will be online only after 1st semester? I'm taking the online pharm too
