This class was tough.
I would recommend this course for anyone who is interested in microbiology but isn't 100% sure it's what the want to do. It's a great introductory course which will cover many topics in microbiology. It isn't the easiest; it takes a lot of effort to maintain a good grade but it is definitely worth it.
My favorite part of the class was the lab portion. One big project is done near the end of the semester and it's where everyone receives two unknown bacteria and you have 3 weeks to figure out the indentity of it.

Advice for students:
I would say study a lot. The best thing to do is study the material but don't memorize it. You really have to understand the concepts
