  • More About the Author

    I'm a science teacher, writer, wife, and mom (not necessarily in that order!) who lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. At Everett Community College in Everett, Washington (about 40 miles north of Seattle), I teach classes in general biology, cellular biology, microbiology, and global health. In addition to working with my college students, I sometimes work on science teaching with teachers in the local K-12 school systems.

    I've basically always loved science -- one of my earliest memories is trying to out-compete a fellow student in elementary school to see who could collect more facts about the solar system! Although that contest was about astronomy, biology proved to be my lasting love. I majored in biology at Boston University, taking lots of classes in botany and microbiology. After that, I worked for a while in a lab devoted to science and science writing before heading to graduate school at the University of Washington, where I earned a Ph.D. in Botany. It was in graduate school that I discovered that I really love helping others learn about science.

    Ever since grad school, I've been on a journey to learn how to help others understand science. That journey has led me to learning more about learning itself, as well as to write science books that are designed for non-scientists or students of science (which you can see here on my Amazon page).

    In my spare time (hah hah), I'm a mad reader of books of all sorts, a scrapbooker, a good cook, a haphazard gardener, and a wanna be backyard farmer.

    If you check out any of my books, I hope you enjoy them and find them useful! If you'd like to take a mini-biology class from me, you can sign up through Ed2Go at http://www.ed2go.com/courses/bio. Science helps us understand the world around us and I truly believe that everyone needs -- and can learn to appreciate -- a little science in their lives.

    The book was easy to understand and it helped that her lectures somewhat followed the book although her lectures were a bit more up to date.

    I bought this book to help prepare for quizzes and exams for an intro to microbiology course. With taking a summer course the schedule is condensced, and there is less time to study (compared to a full semester format). With lecture notes and the course textbook being so dense, this study guide was really helpful for drilling in key points.

    So far it has helped me score 100 points for short quizzes and 85 - 90 on exams. Use this study guide along with a text and pay attention in class - you will do well.

    Let me start by saying that I was dreading taking a microbiology class. However I was surprised at how interesting this class would become. In fact it has become one of my favorite classes so far. This book was great. It has everything you need to succeed. I felt it was written in a way that helped me better understand the subject matter. I used the kindle version and loved being able to quickly search by key words. The graphics were helpful as well. I appreciated the quizzes at the end of each chapter as well as the recap section. I did not use any other book as I felt there was no need. The other books were dry and full of too much extra information. Whether this is your only book or a supplemental one you won't regret it. Im sure this book helped me earn an "A" in Micro. Thank you!!

    I used this book as a supplement to my Microbiology 101 course at a university. It was good for clarifying topics and concepts. The quizzes at the end of the chapters were especially helpful.

    This book has helped me understand the material more than attending class. I highly recommend it. I plan to buy other books in this series as I complete other prerequisites for my degree.

    The book is great, and it is quite thick. It is a excellent choice for learning Biology 1107, 1108, a little microbiolgy 2030, and a little Anantomy and Physlology I and II. In the furture, I am thinking about buying the Barron;s Chemistry, Physics, and Math's subject divisions editions
