I have to take one or the other. I have a class in my major that is taught during the same time as Biochem which I need for graduation but I can get notes from someone. So which is going to help me more in dental school? I know both are heavily tested, but I can only take one due to the amount of credits I already have. Thanks in advance
This is just my opinion about both courses, since I've taken them both.
Biochemistry, the upper level 400 type stuff, is 70% understanding concepts and 30% pure memorization
Microbiology, is about 90% pure memorization, and only 10% "concept".
What type of student are you? If your naturally good at classes like physics, high level math (linear algerbra, discrete mathematics, numberical analysis for example), p.chem..... then your going to love Biochem I
On the other hand, if you've always enjoyed to memorized a bunch of stuff and ace the test, then microbio is your best option.
