Words, words, and more words

How the hell am I supposed to remember this stuff? Did anyone tell me I should have taken Latin in college? NO!

Tell me any of these words make sense---

methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus
vanomycin-resistant enterococci
pseudomonas aeruginosa
escherichia coli
streptococcus A
mycobacterium tuberculosis
escherichia coli
pseudomembranous colitis
clostridium difficile
neisseria gonorrhoeae
candida albicans
tinea capitis
tinea pedis

The list goes on and on! Oh yeah, there's more, baby. Lots more. I have a test on this craziness today. Wish me luck!

I just like it when words end in "cocci."

You will likely ace the test and you know it.
