The biochem course at Doane is amazing. Most well put together class I've ever taken.

It is just a normal Doane University transcript. For example mine says CHEM 330 Biochemistry I. 

Honestly, no. You don’t really need to have solid ochem knowledge. I took both of my ochems in 2015 and I didn’t really have much issue in understanding the reaction pathways. You just have to know th

Finishing up biochem there right now because I started in January! It’s amazing! The class is well structured, and if you put in the work you’ll get a great grade. Dr. beio is very flexible in assignment due dates and answers your questions shortly after you ask them.

Thanks for the feedback! Well structured sounds nice...far better than what UNE sounds like! Would you say it'd be extremely difficult without having a fresh o-chem knowledge base? That's really my only concern, it's been so long since I took orgo

Honestly, no. You don’t really need to have solid ochem knowledge. I took both of my ochems in 2015 and I didn’t really have much issue in understanding the reaction pathways. You just have to know the basic functional groups like carbonyl, carb acid, amides, imidazoles, amines etc. there’s no mention of reaction types like SN1 SN2 or synthesis. Don’t worry!

That's a huge relief! Thanks for all the feedback, it's been immensely helpful!

how is it structured ? and how are the exams ? is it possible to get an A if you just study the material that professor provides ? im thinking of taking because I need if for PA- school application

I haven't had a biochem exam yet. It's all assignments although there is a final at the end of the course.

The only exam is a final. Everything else is completing assignments. So it is very doable to get an A while at the same time truly learning the material.

Sorry to bother you but how many chapters is the final? and how difficult are the assignments ?

Has anyone here taken any pre-req classes online through Doane University? Wondering about biochem, but haven't found much about it online. Also wondering if Doane's course is doable course for someone who hasn't taken orgo since 2015. 

I've also enrolled for the 3/12-5/12 class!

It is proabably 15 or so chapters. But it’s open notes. The assignments are not too hard. I spent 1-2 hours a day on it.

are the assignments online ? and how would you say the difficult of this online class is out of 10?

The assignments are online and worksheets that you can print out. It's not too difficult thus far, but I will say that there's no lecture component and you'll spend a lot of time teaching yourself. I think that's true of any online course though, the difference with this class being that the way you are graded gives you room for improvement/learning and doing well. It's really not been that difficult, just fast paced. I'd say 7 or 8/10 with 10 being easiest, but I'm only in the third(?) week.

I am interested in taking Biochem here and possible organic chem 2.  Has anyone taken Organic Chem 2 here before?  How was that class?  All of the comments about biochem are very helpful! I have been taking courses online at UNE and are very familiar with them and am looking to switch.  Are the exams at Doane proctored like UNE?  Thank you.

Dr. Beio teaches all of the online chemistry courses at Doane so I would imagine the format is the same. For biochemistry there was only one exam which was the final, and it was not proctored. Instead the program is designed to have a lot of practical application assignments that ensure mastery of the material.

I am on the lookout for a biochemistry course as well. Can anyone provide with a direct link to the course which i can submit the program i am applying into to see if they will accept this online course? 

Also I am currently taking organic II and want to take biochemistry after this but i am unable to do so face to face. But i am really scared of taking an online biochemistry course and not getting an A. It will ruin my gpa. 

Please let me know how the structure of the course is. It will be really helpful. 

Thanks

I am currently half way through biochem course with Prof. Beio. I just wanted to confirm what you stated earlier. The final exam is like the chapter quizzes in that its open notes, and no time limit??

Well the final exam when I took it was open notes but it did have like a 2 hour time limit or something. But there were no chapter quizzes when I took the course so apparently he switched things up.

      Hi, everyone. I'm a non-traditional student, wrapping up my associate's degree in psychology from a small state school (not a community college) in Georgia. This college only offers 3 bachelor degrees, which is why I would finish elsewhere. I was a student at Arizona State Online, but transferred to take my prerequisites and labs in person. All my science prerequisites with in-person labs for PA programs will be done prior to transferring to the next college for my bachelor's degree. Now that I'm almost done, I was originally planning to then finish my degree through ASU, but am now considering finishing it at my local university for various reasons. Here's the two options I have:
       
      Option A: Finish my bachelor's degree in psychology at my local university.
      PROS: Graduate with less than $10k in debt. Get hands-on experience in research. More than likely get a stronger letter of recommendation.
      CONS: It would take longer to finish. I would barely get by, working part-time and living paycheck to paycheck. I would have to devote more time to in-person classes, which would take away from my income and time to do other things. Less volunteer hours. ALL clinical hours will be in private EMS, so my hands-on experience and skills won't be utilized as much, as it's 95% mostly transporting stable patients.
      Option B: Finish my bachelor's degree in psychology at Arizona State University (online).
      PROS: Accelerated program and can finish in 1.5 years instead of 2.5 years. Work in 911 EMS, which means better hands-on experience and utilizing my skills more - I think this will also make me a better provider in the future. More time to work, which means more income. More time not in a physical class, which means more time to volunteer, which is less stressful since I also have more money in general. Still get to go graduate in person.
      CONS: Graduate with around $30k in debt. Weaker letters of recommendation. Little research opportunity. Obvious I finished my degree online because the college is 20+ hours away.
       
      Although it would cost more to finish at ASU, I could become a PA faster, which means it would actually be better financially IF I were to get into both at the same cycle.

      Hello all!
      I am sure there are already several similar topics already on here, but I am struggling to find them. I am wondering if anyone has compiled a list of schools that do or do not accept online anatomy and physiology courses if taken during quarantine. I have checked the websites of several schools that make no statements on how their prereq requirements have been altered in response to the pandemic. If anyone has any recommendations I would be very grateful.
      Thank you!!

      Hi, 
       
      Just signed up for this forum. 
       
      I am currently a senior in my undergrad, I finish in the Summer 2021. My current cumulative gpa is 3.09 which is very low and for my science courses these are the grades I have made: 
      General Chem 1 & 2: B
      Biology 1 : B
      Biology 2: C 
      Orgo 1: C 
      Orgo 2: F(first time), C (2nd time)  
      Physics 1 & 2: A
      Genetics: B-
      Microbiology: D, I am going to retake. 
       
      I am taking Biochemistry 1 this spring 2021 and other upper-division biology courses where I hope to make As in. 
       
      I would like advice on what I should do to increase my gpa.  Should I enroll in a post-bacc program while getting PCE (through volunteering/shadowing or getting a job at an urgent care or hospital) or should retake the classes I received a C or below in, then start prepping to take the GRE and going through the application process. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.

      Hey, everybody! Fairly new here. I’ve been scrolling through other threads on this site regarding recommended online schools for prerequisite courses. A few of the threads are extremely helpful but several years old, so I wanted to start a more contemporary thread in case online school qualities have changed or there are any new ones. 
      I’m looking to take biochemistry and anatomy online. Ideally a low price would be great, but a self-paced online course is most important to me considering my current career and associated time restrictions. 
      I’ve been looking heavily at UNE for both courses but have heard mixed reviews. Any recommendations or suggestions based on your experiences, for UNE or others?
      Thank you so much!

      Hello all!
      Has anyone taken Pharmacology online at Doane? I'm exploring my options, but leaning more towards Doane University at the moment. ANY type of feedback regarding the course or other schools ya'll may have completed it at would be greatly APPRECIATED! 
      Thank you so much in advance
