hardest/best pre-nursing course! - page 2
For the program I'm applying to, the sciences we had to take consist of: A&P 1, A&P 2, General Chemistry, Microbiology, and Food & Nutrition. So of the ones everyone has to take, which did you have... Read More
Apr 7, '07I am taking Micro right now and I think it is one of the harest classes (and not as interesting as I thought). I have to admit that I have learned a lot from Micro. I understand bacteria and viruses much better now.
I thought that Nutrition was extremely easy. I didn't have to study that much and got a very high A. I think my teacher was just easy though. And plus I find nutrition interesting, so I already knew a lot about it. I was surprised how little most of my classmates knew.
A&P I and II were really hard but also very interesting. I learned so much in both of those classes.
Chemistry is hard and not that interesting. One thing I like about it is that once you get it you get it. And not that much memorizing. I think I liked all my classes in one way or another.
Apr 11, '07I'm having a really hard time with microbiology right now. Sure, the labs are fun and the professor is nice... but the amount of information thrown at us is overwhelming. It doesn't help that I'm taking A&PII right now as well, but surprisingly that class isn't so bad. I can't wait until micro's over with and I hope I'll get at least a C because I really don't feel like retaking it. The books were insanely expensive! $160 for the text, $91 for the lab book and then $20 for the class notes.
May 10, '08I loved all the core sciences and didn't think any of them were particularly difficult.
I didn't care for statistics, nutrition, nor human development. None were hard but neither did I find them interesting.
The easiest of the them all? Probably chemistry.
The most difficult? Microbiology, but mostly because of the teacher -- Out of about 50 people, I carried the only A into the final...
