Anyone have good luck with Portage Learning? - page 3
I am hoping to be accepted to an accelerated nursing program in either Fall 2016 or January 2017 (the nursing program has three start times per year). I have about six classes of pre-reqs that... Read More
May 14Hi mommy2sjb,
Im thinking of taking Chemistry through Portage - its my last pre-req. Would you recommend this course? Are the tests timed?
I'm re-visiting an old thread here but am highly considering taking all my pre-reqs through portage. I was wondering how you typically ran through the A&P courses with modules and how often you completed exams. Ideally, I would like to complete both classes in a 5 week span as you did. I would be solely dedicating my time to these classes while not working.
You may want to first check with the schools you're applying to to make sure they'll accept the credits. I took all of my pre-reqs through Portage and it worked out pretty well. The downside is that there are times I questioned the quality of the education because there were some and grammatical errors, but you definitely learn enough of the basics. I don't know how well it's prepared me for Nursing School since I don't start until September. There are times where I'd have to look online for extra content and youtube to get better understanding.
As for timing of the course - if I recall correctly, both A&P I and II had 6 modules each and some are longer than others, but I completed each course in 6-7 weeks. You get to pace yourself based on your comfort level. There's an exam for each of the modules, and then a final. The instructors are pretty responsive also! Questions via email, and most, if not all, review and correct your exams within 1-2 days. There's also a student line you can call if you have questions.
