How I did it: I had a B halfway through the semester. I'm a good student and I study a lot, but the exams were really really tough. He'd put 2 essay questions on the exam, each worth 20 points out of a 100 point test. It was tough.
He gave an extra credit opportunity which I took advantage of. I also made sure I did really well on assignments. I did well on my presentation on an organism (Yersinia pestis - which causes the plague), a paper, and our group project.
The first 2 assignments weren't worth many points, but the group project was worth a lot, and it involved carrying out an experiment we came up with, a paper, and a group presentation. The grade we received was multiplied by a different score based on points we gave ourselves, points from other group members, and points from the instructor. I made sure to work hard in my group and to try and keep relations in my group positive to receive as many points as possible there (I ended up with 184/200).
Finally, I lucked out and he made our final exam all online, so it was basically open book. He summed it up as "instructors get lazy and tired at the end of the semester". I got 94% on the final, and ended up with 94.33 in the class!! Read how I did it… 2 years ago
