This book is beyond useful! I'm acing my class, and I plan on holding onto it for graduate school. There is a lot of information included in each chapter, but it isn't overwhelming. Tests for certain organisms are highlighted in their own sections. Somehow the authors managed to include nothing but helpful facts. No pointless fillers. No digging through a 50 page paragraph for one key topic. The organization is flawless.

If your professor is using a different textbook, you should consider purchasing this boo as a supplemental read.

This book was listed as NEW when purchased and is missing pages 509-524 and now I can’t return it because I missed the 30 day return. Unfortunately it was not noticed right away because they had not gotten to that part of the book in class until just this week… Can’t study and now have a non-usable damaged book….

I didn't really want to buy this textbook as I already had quite a few textbooks from my BSc and MSc, but it was a required text for my CLS program.

I have been so disappointed with it: spelling mistakes that should have been corrected in proofreading; the additional resources available on Evolve contain really poorly worded questions that don't make any sense or are misspelled; and on top of that, some of the answers are just plain INCORRECT! On really basic things too (eg. Enterococcus spp. are PYR positive too).

It is a shame, as my lecturer tends to pull questions in our weekly quiz straight out of either this book or the Harr MLS Review book! So frustrating, and if that is the standard of the quizzes, then how am I to trust any of the information contained within it's pages?

Would not recommend.

Well, it's a textbook. I'm never happy about buying text books. However, this one has a good amount of information in it, and the only complaint really is that the covering (the inked part covering the binding) is peeling off. And it's happening to every book my classmates have too. So just a heads up on these, if your renting - you might want to tape the edges of the spine to prevent ripping that you might get charged for.

The organization could be better. More photos. Also, saying if test are applicable to all organisms in each chapter. It's very frustrating to pay so much for a book, and have to google certain pieces of information.

My book arrived brand new, sealed in plastic, and missing the first chapter and part of the second. The book starts in the middle of a sentence on page 13.

It is really the only comprehensive and up to date Microbiology text applicable for clinical microbiology at this time.
Very useful.
