Courses with Labs

Did you know that some Bakersfield College courses come with a lab? If you are not strong in a subject and expect you could use supplemental instruction during the course, look for an “L” after the course number. Here are a few courses with labs to look for in the class schedule:

  • ENGLB1AL – Expository Composition with Supplemental Instruction
  • MATHB1AL – Precalculus I with Lab
  • MATHB22L – Elementary Probability and Statistics with Lab
