    I found it pretty easy to complete, but I am not representative of the population. Pass rate is about 60% of the class and you need an A to be competitive. I took the class in 2011 and passed with an A.

    On the lab paq, you really only need the CD with the pictures and microscope simulator. I did not do any of the actual cultures for the labs. Common organisms are used and there is plenty of information online about each species to make 100's on the labs. The rest is found in the lab manual on the CD.

    This class compares to A&P II or Chemistry in level of difficulty. Not quite as hard as Patho or Pharm.

I start it next week.On the lab paq, you really only need the CD with the pictures and microscope simulator. I did not do any of the actual cultures for the labs.

    As far as the Labpaq, do they change much over the years? I mean like the questions or whatever. How was the lab set up. Do you do reports, or is it more like submit answers to questions? I apologize for all of the questions but Im just so nervous about taking this class.

    I didn't submit the reports, but the quizzes are based off the reports. This includes observational and procedural data you would have gotten if you did the experiement. You need to answer all the questions completely in the report to do well on the quizzes.

    As far as the labpaq cd, it does not appear to change very often. The software looked a couple years old to me.
