    For me, it was spending a little time every day to memorize the bacteria and virus lists we were given. I took good notes in class and recorded lectures. I talked through hard-to-grasp concepts with my study partners until I had them. I always take advantage of any and all resources our school offers. Plus, although I didn't do this, I always recommend utilizing your instructor. They have office hours for a reason! If you need help with a concept or study tips, ask your instructor. They are a wealth of information and most are always happy to help.

    Good luck!

    I tested out of microbiology. I took the NLN exam and I must say it was the best option for me. I previously took micro before while taking 15 other credits at that time. Needless to say- THAT WAS WAY TOO MUCH lol. I ended up getting a C in it, and was so disappointed. To save my applicant profile I decided to test out. I mainly used "schaum's outlines - microbiology, second edition" by Edward Alcamo (Has a white and red cover)and an old lab book. I did phenomenal. The outline book was basically a clear summary of everything important. The lab book explained the lab processes with tons of detail and pictures. I RECOMMEND EVERYONE BUY SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL FOR SCIENCE CLASSES. It worked for me and I was studying and preparing for this test during one of the busiest times in my life (I was sooo short on time). You can do it! Best wishes!
