Biology Lab Final
Wow! If you have kids in college, be especially sweet and patient with them. College is difficult to say the least, especially if you are full time, and even more so if you are old! This morning was my Biology Lab final exam. The instructor set up 50 stations around the classroom. You started at one station, had one minute to answer the question at that station and then moved to the next. Some stations had models of different body parts and you were to name the part, like the optic nerve on the model of the human eye was one. One was a part in the ear, another was a particular muscle and so on. Some were slides set up in a microscope and you might be asked what type of cell was being shown or what stage of Mitosis was being shown. Some were test tubes that were setup to test for the presence of sugar or starch or protein and you were asked whether the result was positive or negative or you might be asked in another what reagent was used. I studied all weekend for this test. My brain was on overload by this morning. I think I did alright but I really don't know to be honest. This was comprehensive so it's been 3 or 4 months since we studied some of this stuff. I am hoping to come out with at least a B in this class. I had an 80 average going into the test this morning. My goal is to be on the Dean's List which requires all A's and B's.
This was the test I was worried about the most and thank goodness it's over, whatever the outcome. I still have four more tests to take this week and next. This is my countdown now, one down and four to go!
