I did have a basic bio class, the only stuff I recall being connected at all was from Micro...although you had to take the basic bio to take any other Bio's...

I took biology 20 years ago and remembered nothing, I took chemistry along with AP. we only covered one breaf chapter on chem what I learned in Chem was really not of any help or benifit to AP. I think its a good course to take as it involves alot of critticle thinking (atleast in my class). I did however take a basic AP no lab course last year as a pre req to a LVN course and I think that course helped me immensely with AP 101

I was able to understand fluid and electrolyte balance better. It is important to take the courses in the right sequence. What may work for one, may not work for you. If I were you, I would talk to an advisor since it really does not matter what we say to you. What matters, is what your school wants you to do.

Except for the fact that I spoke with the nursing counselor at my college and his advice was a little different. I took chem in high school but I told him I didn't learn much as I was in homeschooling at that point with a VERY easy teacher. He said "don't tell anyone that, and go ahead and take anat/physio". So I imagine it depends on the student as well as the school. If you think you will do well without the bio and chem I say go for it (I am!) hopefully we'll both do well! Good luck!!
