    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Look at your hand and make a mental note of what you see. Doesn't look like much right? What if I tell you that there is an incredible complex and fascinating world living on and in your skin that you can't see? Well it's true. Taking microbiology with Dr. Helmick has been my favorite class here at Washington State University. She describes this intricate world in ways that will make you consider switching your major to microbiology; this class is so much fun. But of course this class isn't all fun and games, she will make you work for that A, but it's definitely worth the chase and you'll have fun learning the material.

    Course highlights:

    The labs were so much fun! We learned so many testing methods to identify bacterial species, the unknown soil project was the best part. Being fully prepared, we tackled a soil sample, that we collected, and ran every test we learned over the semester to identify what bacteria we pulled from the earth. The labs really pulled the material from lecture into hands on learning. I really felt like a scientist!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't underestimate this course. The exams are all short answer, but if you attend lecture and take notes you will make it. Most of the exam material comes from lecture, little from the textbook.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Helmick is an outstanding teacher who really enjoys teaching the subject of microbiology. Concepts taught are applied to real life events and the lab is designed for hands-on experience applying the knowledge learned in class. The class allows students to be aware of events happening around us as well as it gives us the tools to educate others.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the labs. To see actual bacteria and conduct different experiments which we read about was very intriguing. I learned a lot about bacteria and viruses around us, prevention methods, manipulating growth, etc.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes and learn to love flash cards! There is a ton of information that needs to be absorbed, and do not miss one day.
