Has anyone had experience taking the Rio Salado online Anatomy and Physiology II accelerated class? If so I am interested in your experience.
Would you recommend this class? Do you feel the 16 week class there makes more sense? I want to take the class again for a better grade. I think a good understanding of this material is essential for nursing. I have been accepted into a 2 year RN program and will be starting in Aug, 07. I only have Microbiology left and then I will just have the nursing classes.
I am taking the AP2 class right (full semester) I can't imagine taking it in 8 weeks. I did take AP1 through Edukan in 8 weeks, however they did not have any essays and their labs are designed differently than Rio. Also, edukan's tests are online, and Rio's are proctored. That being said, I am learning more at Rio (I had a poor instructor at Edukan.. have a great one with Rio) If you have nothing else on your plate, I guess it could be done, but if you have a family/other classes, then I would advise against it. I am confused though, have you already taken the class (you said you wanted to get a better grade) is there something in particular that you didn't understand? maybe we can help? Maybe just try re-reading the chapters that confuse you, answer the questions in the back of the book and research any confusing areas?
Fyi, I took Micro (full semester) from Rio, and I loved it! Great class, learned a lot!! I speak very highly of Rio.. lots of work.. but you learn a lot, and retain a lot! (due to high number of essays, short answer labs) that being said, I better get off this board and back to my book!
PM me if you want...
