Fall 2012 Microbiology Students -- STAND UP! - page 2

Since we had these threads when I was in A&P I and II, and I thought I'd start one for Microbiology. Anybody else delving into the world of bacteria and viruses this fall? Let's start a support... Read More

    I started Micro today! Our instructor is super organized and will demand a lot, but she knows her stuff and I think we'll all learn a lot. It seems like we'll have more work in Micro Lab than Micro Lecture (two completely separate classes at my school), even though we only get one semester credit for the lab. I think I'll really enjoy Micro...after all, anything is better than A&P! Whew, glad to be done with those two classes.

    I started Micro today! I can already see it will be just as I've been told: lecture will be lots of work and lab will be lots of fun. In lecture, we delved briefly (very briefly) into basic microbiology, and in lab we did nothing more than talk about what's coming, get our lab safety lesson, and receive the lab coats we'll use for the semester. I've heard wonderful things about my instructor, and I must say I really like him so far. I think it's going to be a great semester. A lot of work, a lot of memorization, but a great semester.

    I start micro next week. I have my text book and my lab manual should be here soon. I wish I could say I'm looking forward to it, but what I am really looking forward to is being done with it. I might surprise myself and enjoy it, though. You never know. :-)

    I started the lecture yesterday and have lecture and lab tomorrow. I think the subject matter is interesting...doesn't mean I think it will be easy though! The prof mentioned we could use calculators on our exams which really freaked me out. I have a hard enough time with sciences, math is even worse!

    My school is a bit late...classes don't start 'til another couple weeks. Really looking forward to Micro though.

    Yep, me too. Second class tonight. It's fascinating! I'm taking Micro and Public Speaking, the last two classes before I start clinical in the Spring. I must have had some micro in high school, because I've seen this material somewhere before...so far it's all recall. That was 25 years ago, though! If anyone has any good resources, please share!

    My instructor gave us these websites to use in addition to our textbook websites:

    The Biology Project
    communicating at an unknown rate
    Virtual Cell Animation Collection

    Quote from daniellep12
    What text book is everyone using?
    We're using Microbiology With Diseases By Body System 3rd Edition by Robert W. Bauman. I love that it's a fraction of the weight our A&P textbook was.
