Fall 2012 Microbiology Students -- STAND UP! - page 9

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 took my first quiz about a week ago made a 19/20. Today I took my first test I will know Thursday what I made. I prefer A&P 1 and 2 over microbiology any day.

    Lab was so much fun yesterday. We took cultures and we are going to look at them tomorrow. I sure hope everything comes out good (I was very careful to follow the directions given) so it should.

    Yesterday I spent 6 hours writing 4 case studies....ughhh! I don't want to talk about cell walls, nucleoids or causative agents for at least two days.

    Had our first lab exam on Monday. Our prof was supposed to give us back our lecture exams today, but said he hadn't finished grading them. So we won't know our lecture exam scores until Thursday. We should have our lab exams back tomorrow. I'll be interested to see what I get on them. He really likes to put essay questions on his tests, which I don't particularly like. We're doing staining tomorrow, which is always fun

    Got our lab exams back today....100%!!! Woo hoo!!!

    Still waiting to get our lecture exams back. I don't think I did as well on that one. I know I missed 3 questions for sure. Hoping the essay questions will keep my grade up. Fingers crossed...

    After getting a terrible 65% on the 1st quiz and then studying my butt off for the 2nd and getting a 90%, I was in pretty good shape for test today but I was soooo nervous about it.....

    ....but I got a 94%! There's always those 1 or 2 questions that I stupidly answer wrong even though I know the answer but overall I'm pleased.

    Now if I could just get some motivation for Organic Chem.

    Agreed! I had to study my butt off to earn an A in both A&P 1 and 2. I only studied a few hours for my first lecture exam and I got a 94. Let's see how I do with my first lab exam today.

    I got an 89 on my first lecture exam. Not counting the bonus points yet.

    Got my first exam back yesterday - 101.5%!!! I am thrilled! But, no time to relax since midterm lab test and exam #2 are fast approaching!!

    Lab has been fun - we made Gram stain slides of cultures we made from our mouths and also a mixed culture. We also had a very nice culture that included phages to see how many plaques we had. I am really enjoying this class, but it is about all I think about now!
