Welp, I am in the WGU RN to BSN program these days. I just started the Bio Chemistry class about 2 weeks ago and I am stunned (😩🔨). Any tips??

Biochem isn't that bad if you break it down.

Do one unit at a time.

Read the material!

Seriously, this isn't like some of the other classes where you can take the PA, study what you missed, and then pass the OA in a week. This class is a marathon, not a print.

Take the end of unit quizzes and tests.

DO NOT rely totally on the videos and files some people have posted on line in a certain face book group. They are outdated, since the class was restructured back in October 2019.

Reach out to the course instructor early and often. They have additional materials that will help you clarify concepts. They want you to pass.

Once you have studied all of the units, go back and take the end of unit test again. You should do better the 2nd time around. (I was told that if you score 85% or higher on the unit tests, you'll do well on the OA)

Use the live and recorded cohorts, as well as the live BYOQ events. I found them VERY helpful.

Biochem took me 4 weeks total. I spent 3-4 hours on each weekend day, and 1-2 hours each weeknight. Passed the OA on the first try.

Thank you so much RNBearColumbus, ADN ! I am overwhelmed with the amount of information and how to structure it. That makes so much sense now! 👍 And thanks for the reply.

There is a course instructor named Rob Rawson who has a great set of notes, one for each module. He is great at breaking down the concepts in a way that makes sense and you can study from his notes. I came across him when he was teaching a live cohort and he shared his notes for that module, and I wrote to him and asked him for his notes for each of the modules.

Thank you! As I am still beating my head on the wall.🤪 I don't remember any of these concepts!
