Hi! Has anyone ever taken the UC berkeley extension pharmacology course? I am looking for study tips on how their final exam is?

Also on how to get better contact with the professors. Especially during this uncertain time, I may not be able to get the final exam proctored!

Did you try and email the teacher? Or are they not responding? How is the online class by the way?

I tried to email the teacher and he basically told me not to ask unless my class end in two weeks (which I can't do cause I need it for a grad program).

Pros to the class: they provide a lot of information and resources, self-paced so it's easy to do at home but you have to be motivated

Cons: it can be expensive, and it's hard to get instructors to respond to your questions.

Did you try contacting the UC berkeley extension office and tell them about the situation and how the professor has not replied with a solution to the final exam? I feel like if you let them know what is going on you can at least get your money back if you are unable to take the exam.

I was reading the UC berkeley yelp page and a lot students wrote terrible reviews about the program and some guy named Dave M responds to all the bad reviews with basically contact extension@berkeley.edu. Maybe you can try contacting them and see if they reply.

I haven't taken any extension classes at UC berkeley. I've been looking into it and trying to get more information about it before I dive into it and then I found their yelp page. I hope the professor emails you back or the extension office can help you.

Thank you for letting know about your experiences with the program. I appreciate it.

How do you like the UC Berkeley Extension pharmacology course? I just started it and no one seems to want to give any assistance or they don't understand my questions. Would you be okay if I ask you for some assistance with the course? Anything is much appreciated.

I have to say that with COVID-19 they have been very unresponsive. They keep saying they're working on alternatives for final exams but it has been so long I think they are just waiting for stay-at-home to be over. 

Because I have a deadline I hate to have to redo a class but I have switched to straigherline. I would check it out and see if their classes transfer. They offer free tutoring, and it is much cheaper than UC Berkely extension. It has been a 1000% better to take that class. 

If you have to keep up with UC Berkely Extension I am more than happy to help with what I can. I finished all of the modules which is such a waste so it would be nice to put it to use. 

Oh also, I noticed that straigherline has modules on dosages and calculating dosage. UC Berkeley Extension's course does not have that. So if you want to want to learn or feel its important to learn then I would take straigherline.

I have found that they are not very helpful with my questions. It's really frustrating. 

I checked if straighterline was an option and it's not for me. It won't be accepted. Is there a way I can ask you questions about the course off line? This doesn't let me DM you or I would have done that already.

Did you find it beneficial to but the book or did you really use it? How did you study for the quizzes? How did you study for the midterm? Do they provide a study guide? Once you open the worksheets do they have to be done all at once before you close them? How do you study for the final? Study guide?

Hi! I sent you a direct message. Let me know if you can't respond to me.
