I bought this book as a tool to help me study microbiology in college.
It is a good book for review of the very basics of microbiology, prefect for someone how is not a science major and is just fulfilling a G.E. class.
The book comes complete with a helpful coloring guide and each section includes text explaining the illustrations.
good for high school level or pre-med nothing to consider for advance level pre-med micro or medical school.Published 1 month ago by maro
