5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference for undergraduate microbiology August 4, 2003
By A Customer
I took a microbiology class in undergraduate and found this book quite thorough and well-organized no nonsense approach. It got right to the point, without the added wording of many textbooks. I also used the Microbiology Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers by Patrick Leonardi which is on
I found the last book to be quite on the mark with the type of questions to know for the test. These two books really helped alleviate many surprise questions on my microbiology exams. My friend who took microbiology last year recommended these two books. He was right, these two books helped me get an A.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally Understand February 5, 2011
By G. S
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this book yesterday because The text book we are using for undergraduate class is Microbiology -An introduction by Tortora, makes no sense. It has tonnes of details to sift through before getting to the dang point.In the middle of one chapter you have to constantly jump to another chapter , not even on the syllabus yet. Our first 3 weeks we were suppose to read the first 3 chapters, but you have to end up reading like 4 additional chapters to get what the "intro" was trying to say... so to understand a single topic so its like trying to stuff the whole book into your brain all at once and this was not working.Even with the e-text, definitions are not very clear "hidden" and you have to google to figure out what they are referring to.
However, As a pre- nursing student I find the Super Review very straight forward and to the point.Its not extremely detailed but it tells you what you need to know so you can understand to topic, then refer to your text to make sure everything for the class is covered. One reviewer says it does not follow their text, but its silly to think that different publishers would follow the same pattern.THIS IS NOT A REPLACEMENT TEXT BOOK FOR CLASS. Its a quick straight forward reference book and for $10 is worth more than the dang $190 i paid for the required text.
I have been reading the super review all night, Microbiology is so clear now, plus they have sample questions with the answers RIGHT BELOW, so you don't have to sort though 1000pages to figure out the question.For example the first chapter has the history of MicroBiology. The class text book list like 50 plus names of persons who played a role in microbiology, who the hell can remember all that, who the heck is important????.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very in depth review December 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This 227 page book covers a lot of material in a concise and in depth manner. As an example, I've listened to lectures in preparation of taking Microbiology this coming January, and the professor mentions autothrophs and heterothrophs and ends it there after giving a description of each. This book actually break down the autothrophs as well as providing an easy to follow table. I would recommend this book as either a prep book, a refresher book, or a supplement to the text book.

4.0 out of 5 stars great refresher! June 7, 2012
By MBT123
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I gave this book 4/5 stars only because it doesn't have any pictures or colors which I feel is disappointing given the subject. This book is however, a GREAT lecture review for Micro. The words are easy to understand and I love how small and light it is so you're not carrying around another 10 lb. science book!
