Starting a new thread and hopefully someone in the know will make it a sticky ;) Got an 84 in my first Micro exam last week. Not what I wanted (I had a 4.0 going into this semester), but... Read More

    Hey all you fellow Micro folks!! This is offiically my first post to allnurses.com... I didn't realize this Micro forum was on here. But I'm glad to find it! I'm finishing up Micro and the lab this semester. These are the last of my pre-req's before petitioning to the Central NM Community College (formerly TVI). Our semester doesn't finish until mid-December. The midterm in lab was the most intense test I have taken. Got an 86. The only thing left for lab is my unknown project/paper which is the final. I've figured out the gram-negative bacteria is E. coli but the gram-positive bacteria is driving me nuts...

    Winding down here ... or should I say ramping up?? My lecture final is two weeks from yesterday. Things are moving along with my biochemical unknown and I hope to have both identified by the end of Monday night's lab (Wednesday is the deadline). Unfortunately my prof waited until this week to advise that there would be a practical lab final next Wednesday. This is the first its been mentioned, its not on the syllabus. Apparently we're guinea pigs for the Science Dept to see how we do on it. Lovely. At least we got a nice study guide so we know what it will cover but its a lot.



    So far I'm holding onto a mid B and I'll be grateful to finish with it.

    How's everyone else doing??

    So to all of you soon-to-be Microbiology graduates out there, I have a question for you. How difficult do you think it is to make an A in this class? I hear it's one of the hardest classes that you can take, so just curious on your experienced perspective.

    Congrats everyone!

    As one who is about to finish Micro, I'd say the difficulty doesn't necessarily lie in the subject matter (its not that hard to get your head around it), but the volume of information you must digest to get that A. Good at memorization? Not good at memorization but willing to put in the hours? You'll get an A.
