need microbiology and biochemistry? for premed requirements at certain schools. i have decided to retake organic chem I before attempting organic chem II; however, will i be ok in micro and/or biochem since it was so long ago that i took general chem I and II? i just don't know how much to retake in order to do well in these new courses. i'm trying to get into medical school and want to be sure that i do well, but don't want to goof around retaking things i don't need, either. input??

The concepts that you learn in general chem are applied in organic, biochemistry, and to some degree microbiology. If you don't have a solid foundation in the basic principles of chemistry, these courses may seem more difficult. Perhaps you could run to your school's library, find a general chem textbook, and browse through it to see how much you remember from 15 years ago. If it seems elementary to you, you may be okay. If you find you don't remember any of the material, you may benefit from retaking the course.

Another thing to consider is the MCAT which has a fairly brutal chemistry section. You will want to have a solid chemistry knowledge base for this.
