I took Micro last summer at my CC, and it was honestly really intense squeezing all that material into 6 weeks. I wasn't working, nor was I taking other courses, so I was fortunate to have the time to study, eat, study, sleep, go to class, and do it all over again. Yet, others in my class who did work that summer survived also, but they were of course exhausted coming into class. People who forced themselves through the short class thinking it would be easier than taking it during the semester were proved wrong. But at the same time, I know a handful of students taking it this semester, and they're struggling big-time too! This might depend on the actual instructor, but I'd say take it in the summer if you know you can honestly dedicate yourself to studying each and every day. There's a lot to learn in Micro, and if you are passionate about biology in general you will absolutely find Micro fascinating! It relates sooo much to nursing and to why people get sick in the first place. I ended up with the 'A' I wanted to get in the course, but it didn't come without a lot of effort! You can do it too, but you must accept the fact that it is accelerated and it may be tough, and then commit yourself to doing well! :hngon: Hang in there!
