My Microbiology 2 experience

I actually had Micro 2 last thursday, but I wasn’t planning to write about it until someone asked me to. I don’t really have much to say about it but here goes.

The exam is simple choice and there are 60 questions. There is no block system, unlike Micro 1.

I took Pathophys 2 monday the same week and therefore only had like 2.5 days to study micro. There was no reason not to try but I didn’t expect to pass. During this time I only watched and studied sketchy for bacteria, I didn’t study or look at any papers or notes. I quickly repeated some viruses as well. I didn’t have time to watch the fungi and parasite videos, so I was totally blank on those questions.

Luckily, most of the questions we got were bacteria-related, and most (but not all) could be answered with knowledge from sketchy. The virus-related questions were not very difficult in my opinion. There were some general microbiology questions and questions about diagnosis and such as well. If you’re curious about some of the questions, send me an e-mail and I’ll tell you what I remember.

In the end I barely got a 2 (with only 2 points to spare), so I definitely would not recommend skipping fungi and bacteria. I was lucky to pass at all with such short study time.

Good luck!
