Help What topics we can skip in Microbiology?

Hi everyone!
I have started studying microbiology these days and was wondering what's really important to study in it.

Is there any topic which I can skip like microbial genetics, drug resistance & comparative microbiology? they seem kind of hard to digest....

Please help, I'm also short of time & have to finish it this week at max... plz help everyone.

Thanks a lot

Arrow Study Everything

I'm going to be honest with ya.... But its the things you dont think will appear on the exam... actually do lol... You should of seen my face when i got a microbiology genetics q on my exam, thank god i got it right cause it was an easy one... But it does appear on the exam though.

Go over everything regardless of how long it will take 2 learn it, Its better for you in the long run, beyond the step 1.
