I recommend using the EC exam content guide to direct your study and reading, and the EC practice tests are worth the $60 expense. Good luck.

It's been a few years for me, but the microbiology exam was rather straight forward. The book followed the content guide. Read it and make flashcards, that helped me earn an 'A'.

Good luck!

I took the Micro Exam last week (1/15) and made a B. I used the Content guide, EC practice test, flashcards, Micro CliffsNotes (free online on the CliffsNotes website) and Microbiology Demystified (if you go to the EC virtual library and click on E-brary you can view this book free, also)

It was straight forward as mentioned early. I took A&P the day after and made a C. I studied a lot more for Micro than I did for A&P. I was sweating bullets when I took the A&P. When I saw that "C" I was so happy!!!!
