    I'm so glad the semester is halfway over. I enjoy listening in lecture, lab is somewhat interesting (though right now we are just flying through various micro tests because in the next couple of weeks we will be given unknowns to do tests on and figure out ourselves), but I'm tired!I got a B on my lab exam last week and an A on lecture. And there is another lab exam in two weeks...

    Took my second exam yesterday and received a 90%. I didn't feel too prepared going into it, but I end up surprising myself!

    Let's all keep up the good work!

    Great job everyone

    My question how many tests, projects and papers do you have?
    Tests: 4 in lab, 4 in lecture (including finals)
    Projects: 2 in lab (testing for the identity of unknowns)
    Papers: 1 in lab (short paper about an infectious disease)

    In lecture I also have weekly quizzes and chapter quizzes, and in lab I also have weekly quizzes. It is a lot to keep up with; that's why I keep a planner with me almost all the time!

    My question how many tests, projects and papers do you have?
    In lecture, we have 4 exams plus the final exam. In lab, we have the midterm and final practical/written exams and an unknown that counts as part of our final.

    Other than that, we have online T/F lecture homework for every chapter and MC prelab homework for every lab activity.

    2 points away from a B in a test. I studied so much and am going to study even more for the next test.

    Lecture: 4 exams (5 if you have to take the final; I'm planning on being exempt) and 1 two page paper

    Lab: 4 exams, 4 quizzes, several pre-lab checks, a microscope quiz, an 'unknown microbe' project

    Both classes offer bonus work as well.

    Lecture exam 2 was yesterday. I went to Maui for fall break, got home Wednesday night, crammed for a couple of hours, and managed to get an A on the exam. Sweet!

    I cannot believe it....I ended up getting the only A in the class on lecture exam #2. I thought for sure I had either a high C or low B on that exam, it was so incredibly tough!!! I thought he had given me the wrong test at first

    We've got one more week before we start our Unknown identification project in lab. Looking forward to it!

    Congratulations on the As!

    Thanks, Kimynurse!

    We did more lab tests that will relate to our Unknown project. Lactose fermentation, Deaminase, Decarboxylase, etc. I'll be interested to see how they turn out tomorrow. Love the purple color of the lysine test Two more labs to go until we start Unknowns...
