Book Description

April 6, 2006 0781753422 978-0781753425 Fourth

Now in full color, the Fourth Edition of this text gives students a thorough understanding of microbial agents and the pathophysiology of microbial diseases. The text facilitates learning and recall by emphasizing unifying principles and paradigms, rather than forcing students to memorize isolated facts by rote. Case studies with problem-solving questions give students insight into clinical applications of microbiology. Each chapter ends with review and USMLE-style questions. For this edition, all schematic illustrations have been re-rendered in full color and new illustrations have been added.

A new online site for students includes animations, USMLE-style questions, and all schematic illustrations and photographs from the text.

2.0 out of 5 stars Outdated and poor on microbiology January 31, 2012
This books covers some basic aspects of microbiology and infectious disease and goes into considerable detail to describe the ways in which numerous pathogens can cause disease and how these infections can be treated. While this may be useful information for students in Medicine, it is not sufficient for students in Biological Sciences as basic microbiology is hardly discussed in this book. The book is also becoming outdated: for example, it lacks discussion on microbial genome sequencing.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
our lectures recommended this (much because one of our lectures is the author, cary engleberg). it's a very accessible read with short chapters highlighting disease mechanism and process. i highly recommend it as an overview book. great accompanist for a first year medical infectious disease course.
