If I want to get an easy A in a science course what are some science courses that I should look into?

organic chemistry, very easy. But really - look at the survey courses and ask around.

Try "Modern Physics". Much easier than traditional physics.
 
It really depends on you as a person. Also depends on the courses taught at your school and the difficulty of the professor teaching the course. I don't think this site is the best place for that information unless you specifically tailor the title to your school.
 
It's the individual school/professor that determines how easy a course is, not the the actual material covered.

^^^ Truer words were never spoken.

OP, ask around and see what the upperclassmen at your school have to say about "easier" science courses. Word tends to get around about generous graders...
 
wow. this is such a bizarre thread.

We do not go to your school. Or most of us do not.

Thus, we have no idea what the easypeezy courses at your school are. They differ from school to school. Follow around some football players and you'll likely find your gold at the end of the rainbow.

At my school, the easy science courses were the ones non-science majors had to take to fill general requirements to graduate. However, our premed advisors told us to steer away from those courses since med schools could see through gpa padding strategy.
 
If you want an easy A in a BCPM course, you can only count on the intro ones (bio/chem/physics I/precalc).
Adcoms are not stupid, they'll know you are padding up your GPA when you take classes such as "Algebra 1/2 for Athletes" or "Statistics for Business Majors"....

Moreover, it never looks good to take a lower level class for a subject if you already took an upper level one in that same subject.
 
I excelled in Calculus and I have found Physics extremely easy. If math is one of your strongest subjects and you are good at looking at things conceptually, you may want to look into some Physics courses beyond the introductory level.

physical chemistry. i never went to class or read the notes and got an A+++ in it.


jk.
 
lets...see chem, orgo chem, bio, physics, calculus I, II, III, phychem, biochem...and the list gos on lol :cool:

it really depends who is lecturing it, find a good ineresting professor and work hard then you are good for the A. PS: always read more than two text books at the time this will really help your science grades.
 
If you're looking for easy classes, you're not med school material. Sorry.

Intro courses (chem, bio, etc.) at many schools are major weeders. The material may be easy to understand, but the tests, at least at my school, separate the men from the boys. Therefore, I wouldn't call chem or bio "easy A's."

Furthermore, upper-level sciences tend to be more interesting and fulfilling. Because you are more interested in the material, you are likely to do better.
 
Are you a science major? I've found that classes centering around ecology and evolution tend to be easier A's than, say, molecular bio or physio.
 
What with the "???????" in the title???????

It's like his signature, or something.

Anyway, I agree with the poster who said that the relative ease of a class depends on the professor who teaches it. Why not ask some of your own classmates, instead of an anonymous forum?
 
genetics isn't bad, and friends of mine that went to different schools felt that way too

Maybe so, but upper level sciences courses such as inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, calc III/IV, or biochemistry aren't the easiest nor the most interesting ones to most people either...
 
Microbiology was the easiest upper division Bio course that I took during undergrad.
 
At my school, geology is a part of the physics department. Why, I will never know. It's well agreed upon that the easiest science class in the entire school is "Basic Geological Survey" - kindly referred to, although we are a commuter college with no athletics teams, as "Rocks for Jocks" - which always prompts at least one joke referring to testicles.

Barring that, probably intro biology. Bio's got less math than chem or physics and I always found it easier. Ecology is usually not too complicated - I passed an ecology course my freshman year without ever showing up, because I cracked the book occasionally, and took the tests online. YMMV - you might get a hardcore professor. :thumbdown:

Ask the upperclassmen at your school. I think it depends more on the instructor and their requirements than it does on the subject. If no one has any good suggestions at your school, look into taking statistics for life science majors. That was the easiest BCPM course I took in college. And stats is actually something useful to know about.
