What is harder A&P or Micro?

  1. 0
    Hello All!

    I have 3 quarters left to finish my prereqs. I still have to take A&P I & II, Microbiology and English100. So I'll be taking one science for each quarter and I need to decide which quarter to take English100. So which science course would you say is the easiest?? Thanks!

    I thought A&P were definitely harder. I didn't even buy the book in Micro and I passed with a B. This is probably going to be difference of opinion! English 101 is probably going to be really easy so I'd say it wouldn't matter which science course you decided to pair it with.

    Okay, well, I may be the minority who thinks the composition classes were way more challenging than any other class I have taken [including nursing classes] so far. Even though I received A's in all my comp. courses, I absolutely found no joy during the process of writing, but, I found great joy when I completed every assignment knowing I did my very best.

    B in micro (test out) after a week of browsing the textbook. A in A&P 1 & 2 (6 credit test out) after WEEKS of really digging in so..... My vote is for A&P just due to the sheer volume and depth of material.

    Micro seemed a lot more detail oriented and those details required a lot of explanation on exams. Though I loved micro and playing with bacteria, the tests were really difficult. Still got an A but found it more difficult than the A&P. I had more trouble with a research writing class that I had to take than any of the sciences.

    A & P is mostly memorization, not Micro.

    It really depends on what grabs your interests. Personally, I like body systems and the bigger picture, not things on a cellular level. For me, Micro was harder. I had A&P I & II, then Micro. I'll say this, Micro lab was fun. We were able to grow things such as pseudomonas and e.coli...but that was the only part I truly enjoyed. I did finish the course with a high B, but I'm very glad to have it out of the way.

    I think A&P is much harder.

    A&P requires much more time investment than a general Microbiology class. You will spend hours upon hours learning new vocabulary and intricate details of the complicated human body.

    Microbiology has a focus on prokaryotes which are the most basic organisms. There is a substantially less amount of detail involved because of this and in my opinion it made it easier.
