I ended up doing really well on Micro but it really depends on what your professor gives you to work with...
Mine gave us a packet of bullet points of the important facts summarized so I would go through every bullet point and try to come up with a question for it and type both out on different word documents.
An example would be "1. What is a drawback of using a broad spectrum antibiotic?" "Might cause a super infection where it kills off your normal flora".
After I went through a packet I usually had about 25-30 questions and would memorize the first five by heart, then move on to the next five, then the next five, etc.
Sounds pretty simple which is what I needed to compress the micro material into a manageable class.

I could have done much better because my prof was amazing, just didn't take enough time. But I'll accept B's with a SMILE!!! Thanks for sharing in my pain of Microbiology... can't say I'm sad to see it go! LOL
