Can I just say UGGGGG?
We are 1/2 way through the project, and I *thought* I had mine identified. Well now it appears that one of mine was contaminated and I have to start all over!!!!!
A lot of people in my lab are already done! I, on the other hand, have to go to an extra lab this week to try & catch up! Not only that, when the instructor was writing various notes on the boards this last week (ie. if it's Gram - , do this.... Gram +, etc.) I didn't copy any of that down because I didn't think I'd need it!
If anyone knows of any good websites with flow charts or helpful tips, that would be great! I am going to sit down now and make notes from our lab book of the different tests & results, etc.
I just hope the rest of this week goes smoothly! I was SO disappointed after class this evening.
No, she didn't give us a chart. That's why I feel lost & overwhelmed! That with the added stress of being so far behind schedule already.
All I know is that it will be a Gram negative and I have to do a gram stain tomorrow to see if it's a rod or coccus.
That's all I know so far!! I feel so unprepared & I have an A in the class so it's not like I haven't been paying attention!!!
I know there are different tests to do but I'm just having trouble getting a clear picture in my head of what steps to take. Maybe the teacher will help me out a bit...... we shall see.
