    Take Micro last, after you have taken EVERYTHING else.

    At my school Micro is a 200 level course, so you can't take it until you've completed and passed at least A&P I and there is probably a reason for that.

    I'm taking two classes over the summer, A&P II and Micro, but I've already passed A&P I.

    In a nutshell, if you've not taken a college level lab science course, it's probably not a good idea to take Micro first, it presupposes a lot of basic life-science knowledge as well as lab protocol.

    i personally think it doesn't matter. There is'nt much anatomy in Microbio... I think you can understand it prior to A&P. All the pre-reqs kind of overlap each other in material.

    I've been told to take A&P first because there are two parts to it that you need to take and a lot of students end up needing to re-take the course as it's very challenging.

    A&P wil prepare you betteer for micro.

    I just finished this semester of Micro and A/P at the same time. If I had to pick one ahead of the other, I guess I would say take a/p first. some of the basics covered here are expected for micro. but, I took them at the same time and did well. I'm taking a/p 2 during the summer - I'm a little freaked out!! whatever you decide, good luck!!!
