Taking 2 science courses (bsc2086 and MCB) in the same semester!?

  1. Hello! I am currently completing the pre-reqs for MDC medical campus. I am enrolled to complete my last two sciences BSC 2086 and MCB 2010 in the Spring semester but I'm being advised to just take one (1) science (HUman Anat 2) on its own as it is a tough class. Anyone else here taken 2 sciences in the same semester? (I'm currently taking BSC 2085 and lab and CHM 1033 and lab; its tough but I'm managing!) HELP!

    I haven't actually done it, but I am signed up to take almost the same courses together (A+P 1 and Micro) this Spring. Like I said, I haven't actually done it, but I think if you can manage A+P 1 and Chem, it wouldn't be that much more of a struggle to complete A+P 2 and Micro together. At least, that's what I'm hoping for! Good luck

    I may being taking A&P 1 and micro too. I have seen lots of people do that on these boards. I think it depends on how much time you have too. I work 35 hrs/week nights so I think I could do it. What is your situation?

    I took Anatomy and Micro the same semester. It was hard, but I did it. Good luck!

    Well I currently work PT about 16 hours week nights but I have a 2 year old son! He's a load to handle and I'm single (his father can't watch him often due to a physical disability). I've done this semester AP1 and CHM along with the microcomputers course online. I think if I didnt have to focus so much on that online course, I wouldve been ok! Also im hoping to complete 100 hours of community service from now to April 2011 for the white house letter or reccommendation. =)

    I'm in CA and took them at Yuba. I had a notoriously hard teacher for Micro. lol (Even though he is hard, he is a fantastic teacher - one of my favorites. I worked my butt off for that A!)

    I took Chem and Anatomy one semester. And, Micro and Physio the next. Long hours of study, but I got an A in all four classes.

    Hi! How did it go taking BSC2085 and CHM1033 at the same time? I want to do that but every person I speak to in MDC is telling me that I shouldn't do it because you need to have CHM before BSC. Did you really need chemistry to do well in BSC? I'm also a mom of 2 little ones (3 mos and 21 mos). Can/Should I do this??? HELP!

    hello pattysc

    First thing, I would like to congratulate you on pursuing nursing with two lttle ones. All I did was register for the classes and they said it was ok. Intro to chemistry and intro to biology interacts with each other. So far I'm doing well in both classes(I have not had a science class in 22 yrs). Its alot of studying, homework, and tutoring. I believe at my age its a little more challenging. You also must have a strict study plan. Also my advise to you is to talk to your adviser. I hope this answers your questions and give you better insight on your decision.

    I just finished A & P II lecture and lab, Micro lecture and lab(my school splits the lecture and lab apart into separate classes and grades) and I also took philosophy in the same semester. I'm married and a mother of a 6 year old so it wasn't easy to juggle it all but I did it, with one B+ and 4 A's. I was also told it was near impossible to do, I think it is just a matter of how dedicated and organized you are more than anything. Make a set amount of reserved study time each week for each class and stick to it, you will do fine if you keep up with it all! Best of luck to you!
