Quoting VAR's Mommy:" how do you do labs online? IE biology, chemistry, etc... i go to a university. i learned WAY more in the class room setting than i learn online."
different schools do it different ways. I did vitual lab in chemistry, where I watched videos of the actual labs being done and answered the questions. A friend did her bio lab at home... they even mailed her a cat to disect.
I would agree though.. that long term goal should be taken into consideration.
I had a lab for chem, but not biology. I plan to go for my masters, and fully expect them to make me take a bio lab. I'm ok with that. The last 5 years though, I've had a great job as an RN, so even if I have to retake a class.. well worth it.
