5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me get a 4.0! December 18, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to augment my text book/studyguide for my University 300 level introductory medical microbiology course. This book fit the bill perfectly. It is in a question and answer format, has pictures, diagrams and quizzes at the end of each chapter. I would read this before I read my textbook, and would do the practice quizzes after I read my textbook and it really helped me to understand and remember the concepts. This study guide is also a lot more up to date than my text book was, so that was nice as well. Great practice quizzes... I got a 4.0!

This book is a great complement to Alcamo's Micriobiology 8th Edition. It's chapter by chapter, simplified and perfect for on the go reading. I found it really helpful to read this first, then go back to the text to read and really understand. The review is great as an additional source to test your knowledge.

I think this book is wonderful, when I had my Microbiology class I used it along with my microbiology textbook by name "Microbiolgy, An Introduction." by Gerald J Tortora. You know it really prepared my for my exams and it made microbiology even more interesting. You know I got of final grade of an A!!.
I think any serious student of Microbiology should give it a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too generic, too often January 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a useful introduction to those unfamiliar with microbiology.
Would not recommend to University students, as it covers too little too thinly.
This would work well as Summer reading over the break, if you plan to take introductory microbiology in the coming semester.
