I took Fundamentals of Pharmacology last summer, now I'm taking Genetics and Evolution, going to pick up Introductory Human Physiology in a few days, and I'm eyeing up Introduction to Pharmacy in the fall and a few other things.  These serve as almost a "dry run" of sorts to see if I can handle the academic world again before I attempt to do it for real.  (If I wind up not being able to handle one of these and drop it, I'm not out any money or adding more black marks to my official college transcripts!)


edX also has a biology course that looks interesting.


I'll probably sprain my brain even trying all of this, but at least then I'd be able to know what I'm capable of.  Plus hey, it's free.  xD


I've actually learned more than just the material from these, too.  I've learned how differently my brain works now.  (For one, I'm finding that I absolutely NEED to have music when I study and when I take the quizzes and tests.  And it has to be loud.   IDK why, but I crash and burn without it!)
