Hi All! I peeked and didn't see a thread for those of us brave souls attempting micro this summer so I thought I would just start one! :spin: My class starts July 2nd, but I'm already getting a... Read More

    Well I finished up this week and got a 96 on lab final and 94 in lecture final so I actually got an A in the class! So excited, its great to say I got an A in MICROBIOLOGY. At the beggining of the semester I was terrified just saying the word microbiology and now the crazy thing is that as burnt out as I am this was probably my favorite class that I have taken so far.
    Good luck to those still plugging away!! I know have about a month until I start actual nursing program.
    Congrads that is wonderful. My last day of class was 7-26-07. I so nervous still waiting for the unknown grade to see what my final average is going to be. As of right now i am two points away from a B so wish me luck all.:spin:

    The results of the summer sessions of micro seem pretty mixed. I decided to hold off taking it until fall for a couple of reasons. First, the amount of material covered in any kind of science, especially Micro, is considerable. Not that I'm afraid of failing, I'm quite comfortable with my ability to study. I too am carrying a 4.0 GPA. It's more for the second reason. That would be retaining the information learned. 3 weeks to learn 3 1/2 months worth of material. There's just not enough time to soak it all in. Sure you may do well in tests, but how well will you apply that info when the time comes.

    I'd perfer to take Com or Pych in the summer.

    Good luck in all your future endeavors!

    Do you know yet how you did?? I took A&PI this summer and I am taking Micro and A&PII this fall (along with Dev Psych and Sociology). I got an A in lab and a B in lecture. I also took Gen Psych this summer and got an A in that. Now I am on break until Aug 27.

    Can't wait to see how you did.

    hello to all:
    New to this site, but yeah I am also taking it this second summer session, six week Microbiology. Let me tell you, the class is great and interesting but even though I like my professor I think he is very disorganized, so it is a challenge to keep up, so far I am doing good, my class meet 3xweek 6-10+pm, I have a full time job, a 1 yr old and a husband...so for those who are in my situation, give yourselves some props because I know how hard it is. Good luck to all and study hard.

    I just finished up my micro class last week. It was brutal!! Of course, I had a HORRIBLE teacher! I just found out I got an 89%, 1% away from an A!! :angryfire He told me if he curved the grades, I might end up with an A. Hopefully he curves them! I feel like I should get an A just for effort. Oh well, if I get a B, so what. Taking micro in the summer isn't easy.
