2.0 out of 5 stars Meh December 19, 2006
The book is good in that it explains certain basic immunological techniques quite well in a descriptive sense (at least at the molecular leve), however graphically many things are left to be desired. Many topics like explaining detailed immunofluorescent or protein immunology, etc are woefully inadequate for any practical use. The first third of the book explaining immunological processes is hopeless and best left to a dedicated immunology textbook like Janeway or Abbas.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clear as mud. February 11, 2006
This book couldn't decide what it wanted to be. There were sections that were very detailed and not clearly explained. On the other hand, there were sections that were lacking significant explanation and contained so little detail that it was impossible to understand.

Also, if I had to read 'close proximity' one more time, I would have screamed. Someone should explain to the author AND THE EDITOR that this is redundant. I circled those words MULTIPLE times. Reading such a poorly written book made me wonder what else was poorly described and possible incorrect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clinical Immunology & Serology. August 16, 2011
I just LOVE this book. I can read it over and over. Great! I read other feedbacks. This is not a true. You should first study Physiology, Anatomy,Mictobiology, Coagulation,Hematology. Also , I have completed Pharmacology befor Immunology. People, you cannot just go in the class and study everything without any knowelege. This book is written WELL! Short chapters and VERY compact!

4.0 out of 5 stars Immunology book March 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I needed this book for my MLT immunology class. It is a good resource but very scientificly wordy. There is a lot of information aimed at a higher level of education than the program that I was taking. Lots of things to look forward to as I progress in my understanding of immunological things.

4.0 out of 5 stars Need for school... July 16, 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What can be said? It's concise and exactly what the doctor (or professor, LOL) ordered. It serves the purpose and is soft cover to make it lighter on my load. Plenty of good examples and explanations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough February 24, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Its just OK... This book helps me study but is not organized nicely, especially with bold info. I find it easier to look terms up online for clarification than to read the roundabout mess in the book. It saves me a lot of time when making my study guides to 1' use the web and 2' use the book. Sometimes the diagrams explain things better than an entire page. I wish my teacher picked a better book, bottom line.

Most texts books I read through each chapter. I tried that with this book and I felt like I accomplished little. The way the book is worded leaves a lot to be desired.

4.0 out of 5 stars Required book
The book is required for my class and it goes along well with my teacher's powerpoints. Of course, there's a lot more details in the book compared to the powerpoints as always.
