Reviews and tips for MICR2209

This unit was just "okay". I liked the lecturers (honestly Barbara Chang is just lovely) but the labs were so uninvolved; class sizes were huge, no actual hands-on work, just observation and writing in worksheets - although the malaria guy was really interesting. So much of the unit is rote memorisation that it's honestly insane. VERY few concepts (some immune, some viral mechanisms), almost all just memorising names of microbes and names of associated diseases. Hard to find that interesting. The fungal section was the laziest, most poorly run crap -- no lectures, just a reading uploaded online from a textbook and some terrible "interactive quiz" that bugged out and wouldn't let you access all content. PATH2220 probably had similar enough content to this unit but was just run so much better and as a result was infinitely more interesting. Disappointing unit.

Learning about the immune system can be very complicated so prepare to work hard in this unit particularly in the beginning. Keep hold of your notes if you are doing MICR3340 because a lot of the topics are the same just in more depth. Labs were pretty disappointing after MICR2208 with only computer based ones presented (no wet labs).
