    I started yesterday. Only once a week so it is a long day! It seems like it is going to be a challenge.

    Mine is twice a week, but that's all that was offered. They had four sections available, and all of them were 2 day a week instead of 3 day a week classes. 3 hours each. Not looking foward to that!

    Mine is also 2x a week + lab. I have the same instructor for lecture and lab which is great. I've had science classes before when I've had lab with a different professor and it made the whole learning experience nightmarish. Also, out of the 7 teachers I could have gotten I got the best one! The best reviews online and from what my past science teachers say students in her class always succeed!

    I took both Micro and A&P II at MXC. Micro was a bit rough due to the professor and his teaching style but basically it was a pretty cool class. A&P II was a breeze, very interesting learning how everything works. You're going to rock both of those classes. If you need any help let us know. I'm here for you! Good Luck!

    I am currently taking Microbiology and A&P II this semester too. We just had our first exam, which covered the first 3 chapters and I bombed it. Our teacher is very vague and not very helpful. Any suggestions on the best way to study Micro? I need to get an A in this class to secure a spot in our nursing program in July since it's limited seating. Right now I have a 4.0 and these are the last 2 classes I need before going into the program. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I read the chapters before I go into class thoroughly. That way, in class, even if the professor is vauge, you know what she's talking about since you previewed the material. I take notes during class and then re write them after class. This was I'm dealing with the material 3x a day.

    I'm also taking A&PI and doing the same study method for that class.

    I plan on recording my lectures, taking good notes and then re-writing them when I get home and filling in the blanks with any relevant material from the textbook. Also, youtube videos are wonderful for any concepts that may be unclear.
