I'm 52 ! trying to keep up - Studying Zoology and have two dogs, Henry and George, a rat and guinea pig (Basil and Tom) + fish !!!
I am really enjoying all my CHOSEN modules this, my 2nd year - I am so glad I persevered last year with modules I found really hard and not particularly of my main interest. They all are related tho and relevant XXX So don't get downhearted - just keep going, it all seems so much, but if I can do it !!!! ANYONE CAN !!!
#BS1009 - question 7 on the practice questions. name three other types of genetic elements etc .. Am I correct in saying Plasmids, Bacteriophages,Transposable elements (insertion sequences and/or transposons) is the answer ???
#BS1006 I am starting the practise questions !!! As we don't have answers and I want to check I am barking up the right tree - would anyone let me know if they agree with me 1.1 INFLUX and PERMEABILITY ... 1.1 In resting conditions, the INFLUX for passive sodium ion entry into cells is greater than that for potassium ion efflux, but the plasma...
#BS1006 - another helpful question time session - I do agree that these one to one sessions are really helpful - would be nice to have more of them during the terms and not just before exams. I understand that lecture time is hectic for lecturers - but this is on a selfish note for all students X
Ah, first day back went well - handing in Physiology Question book - library book - Module choices (after seeing my personal tutor) - Environmental and Evolutionary Biology lecture. Really enjoyed it and finding natural selection and the Hardy Weinberg topic quite fascinating !!!!
BBC4 now a programme which is covering Darwin - Genetics and loads of other stuff we've just covered - wow and it is all making sense - wouldn't have done before the course ! It's called 'What Darwin didn't know" - maybe will be repeated through Sky ???
What does CBH mean in the context of 'complicated CBH assembly. Relating to bacterial cell wall structure. Last slide on Dr Heaphy lec 2. Know it's going to be an obvious one, just can't think !!!!! oooops
Not sure whether to revise one module per week (x5) or one module per day for 5 weeks ... anyone - any ideas would be appreciated. I'd never done any physiology at all so will take time to absorb names and terminology. If I do one module per week, I will need a day set aside to re-revise completed modules as the weeks go on. Hmmmmm dilemmas X
After picking up tips from fellow students, I am trying 'study/revision' differently. I now can see why the previous semester's exams were quite disasterous for me. I have just spent 3 hours going through lecture 1 of microbiology properly (not wasted time !), with another 13 to go. Didn't take anything like that time before ... you learn every...
About to start my organised revision - Microbiology first me thinks. Decided to concentrate on one a week so it really sinks in. Don't think I shall get bored with one subject at a time but will review after this first week and if needed change for the following 4 weeks. X
I find this sort of ignorance sooo frustrating - good old superior compassionate! 'humans' again ! Aye-Aye Threatened by Superstition: LIFE Big Pic : Discovery News - http://news.discovery.com/animals...
Just a thought .... it would be quite a motivation to commit to look at friendfeed once a day, we could all help each other's questions, queries or problems .. and keep the train of thought on the right track XXX I certainly will be XXXX
Many thanks to everyone's posts that have helped ..... I will certainly be using friendfeed duirng the hols ... Hope everyone has a great Easter and I think I will actually quite enjoy the revision ... I've found the topics quite stimulating and interesting XXXXXX
