    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Clear information is given and help is offered and available at a schedule that is convenient for both the students and the SI leader. There is extra points to be earned in class in a way that helps students learn and retain.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basis of microbiology that will help me in my foundation of nursing. Specifically, I learned the bacterial and viral diseases and their causal agents, the basis of cellular composition, the components of viruses, pathogens, bacteria and their types, and so much more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise to do and pay attention to the homeworks, do not skip class because each one is full of information viable on quizzes and tests, and take good, detailed notes with illustrations to help learn the processes efficiently.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is definitely reccomended if you are planning to pursue a degree in Nursing or Health Sciences. It goes into a far better detail than a regular Biology class. I suggest taking Biology and then Microbiology so that you won't get hit too hard with the course material.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course for me were learning about the different diseases that microbes can cause. In addition, the important thing I've learned by taking this class is that microorganisms can positively and negatively affect the human body. For example, the "Normal Flora" (bacteria coexisting in the body) in women's vagina keeps it from being infected. All in all, Microbiology introduces you into a world you've already experienced, but never quite truly understood.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students that want to succeed in this course need to be prepared to study often. Microbiology by all means is not an easy class. You can't expect to just listen in lecture and receive a high grade. My advice is to take notes, ask questions, take time to study outside of class, and make sure you understand the homework. The way I studied for this class is by using a whiteboard. The whiteboard helped me turn the material in my head into writing/images which cognitively enhanced my memory.
