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 thread! Let's share our victories... Read More

I'm really looking forward to the end of micro. Prior to taking the class, people told me I would either love it or hate it. I can honestly say neither is true. I don't love it. I don't hate it. For me, it's meh.
I also understood A&P much better. I'm not sure why, but I grasped it much more quickly. With micro, I feel like I'm always floundering. Don't get me wrong; I find it very interesting. My instructor is excellent. I'm doing well on the tests. Still, everything feels like a battle. It's just not coming as easily.
In Lecture, I've got exam #4 Tuesday, three more lectures, and then the final. Final official day of the semester is December 7th, with finals the following week. My last lecture will be on the 6th.
In Lab, our written final is Tuesday and we've got our unknowns and case study still to do. Once my unknown is complete and my case study is submitted, Lab is over. I'm looking forward to a break.
- 1Nov 25, '12 by SopranoKrisI've already figured out my 2 Unknowns (still have a week and a half to work on them in lab). So, I'm going to write up the report and turn it in early. Only took 2 sessions to figure them out...yay!
All we have left in lab is our final exam after this (won't be until Dec. 12th). In lecture, we just finished Unit 7 and have a quiz on Tuesday. Finish up unit 8 in the next few weeks and then our final exam is on Dec. 13th.
I'll be happy to be done. I'm so burned out on school right now!
- 1Nov 27, '12 by Blue Felt FedoraHad my written lab final today. Wasn't too bad. Grades aren't posted yet, but I feel pretty good about it. Thursday starts our unknowns.
Today's lecture exam, on the other hand, was a killer. No grades posted for that yet either, and I DON'T feel good about that one at all. I'm almost afraid to see how I did. Ugh.
- 0Dec 2, '12 by EMT89I already turned in my Unknown since this week was going to be hellish. I would have had a microbiology lecture test, micro lab practical, and an 8 page paper to turn in on Thursday. I am already turning the 8 page paper in on Tuesday. 4 days from Thursday is my Microbiology lecture final. Thankfully our professor is making our test through blackboard . I was somewhat relieved at least to be away from distractions. Even though I can take it at home I'm going study my butt off. I could possibly come out with a B, but a C is more than likely my grade. I just haven't had any interest in Microbiology this semester. I love A&P1 and 2 and made A's, this just isn't my cup of tea (Microbiology). I have tried every study style and habit known to man.
