    This is my 1st year in undergrad pre-med, I took biology 100 this semester since I've been out of high school for 11 years now. I felt it would be a good foundation to acclimating myself back into science. Here is my issue, my instructor is poor at best in her teaching skills, and I will be lucky to pull a C or C- out of the class. In addition to this, my physician suspects I may have sleep apnea, which is probably contributing to my memorization issues resulting in the grade I'm getting in Bio. My question to you is should I withdraw from the class now or take the C or C-? Since it’s so close to the end of the semester I don’t know if I can bring up my grade. My physician will more than likely provide my university with a statement regarding my medical issue.

    My next question, does anyone know of a website where one can purchase videos on prerequisites classes i.e. bio, chem., math etc?

    Thanks!

    If you are hoping for med school, C's in undergrad, although not fatal, do not really help your cause. If that's the best you can see yourself doing, I might consider withdrawing and trying again once you have your sleeping back under control.

    I withdrew from my first bio class also, I did it the second week, but still. I had been out of school for about 7 years, I was in bio 253 with a chemistry prereq which I hadn't completed! I knew I wouldn't make it. I'd withdraw, even if it was a waste of time and money. This is a class where you need to leave it feeling confident about what you learned. Take it again after your health issues are dealt with :)
