The Medical Assisting Program is very poorly run.Not so brightPreMed and Medical
The Medical Assisting Program is very poorly run. The teachers aren't organized, You can't reach some of the teachers via email about assignments. You don't get your tests back for a week or more after your test. The teachers pit students against each other and against other teachers. The equipment breaks down or there isn't enough equipment for the whole class. Teachers are on their computers during class and you are not allowed to approach them. If you are an independent learner and keep to yourself you may like this program. I felt it is not worth the money to attend this program. Save yourself and find another one.

Engineering in this community college is difficult, youBrightComputer Engineering
Engineering in this community college is difficult, you have to deal with calculus 1, 2, 3, physics calculus 1, 2, intro to engineering, economics etc. For Calc: Avoid Kolman, Tramer, Tucker: These instructor give you a ton of work and make tests extremely difficult. For Physics: Take Jerry Angelichio, he is an easy grader but gives hard quizzes, do good on his masteringphysics, easy A. Nick Bonevac's physics lab is very hard, almost 18 hours of experimenting a week. I hear its much easier to do in UNCC than here. If your trying to transfer to NCSU, stay here because at this intensity, you would be able to breeze through your other subjects. Don't expect to make any friends here. Skip their developmental classes, they serve no purpose. Learn to hate this place and get out quickly, its not worth being here because its not safe, people are not friendly, there are gangsters everywhere, its ridiculous.If your planning to get your Associates in Science, its not worth it (For UNCC, yes because you can be exempted from all General Education program requirements, but for NCSU no you won't be). I did notice for computer engineering, you do end up taking a lot of unnecessary classes like Diff EQ for example. You dont' need this class for comp. engineering, I don't know why UNCC requires this.
