Should I take these classes together?


Okay, I made it through the summer, I got a possible C in chemistry and not sure if I want to take it over again to get a B. I'm thinking about it


My schedule for the Fall 2009 is going to be:

Human Anatomy 1

Organic Chemistry



do you think I should hold off on the Statistics? I am almost done with my pre reqs and I just want to get this over with. I figure if I take statistics then I'll only have two classes left to take in the Winter 2010

You can do well as long as you put in the work and not half ass anything. I am taking API and Gen Chem II-premed this semester along with some upper level English course and two other classes I need. I am a little apprehensive about taking premed line chembut I have no choice. All the nursing chems are full. I plan in doing well.

Stats is not that hard. Just study...besides I am sure you will fell better knowing that you will have only 2 prereqs left.

If I had time I would do things differently however I don't have the luxury.

Are you applying to a ASN, BSN, or direct-entry prgram?

I am going to apply for the BSN.

We are the same age and on the same track! I kept hearing Statistics is kinda hard, still not sure. They say all you need is knowledge in basic Algebra and I LOVE algebra.

I think it all depends on how well you handle the workload for each course and how much time you are able to devote to studying - do you work, have children, etc? Anatomy and Chemistry can be challenging as they involve lots of memorization but psychology is a relatively easy course and the material is interesting which helps. If you are good at math then Statistics won't be too much of a challenge for you either. I love math and enjoyed my Statistics course and passed with an A. Best of Luck! :up:

Statistics is easy, you just need to study. I took the introdutory one and got a "B." My last semester in college, I took advance statistics "520" was the number and got an "A." You just need to spend some time after class studying.

Wow, congrats you're almost finish. If you feel comfortable taking the stat's class then take it. If you think you're pushing yourself too hard then hold off.

Good luck!!!

When I took organic it was quite a bit more time spent in the lab than general chem and thought it required a bit more study time just b/c there is a fair amt of memorization but I really liked it. I'm no math whiz and I thought stats was not that difficult. Seems like a doable schedule to me. Good luck!
