Format: Paperback
This is a well organized and written reference that makes sense of the arcane world of fungal names and nomenclature. I am a veterinary dermatology resident and from one careful reading of this book I was able identify the most common pathogenic and contaminant fungi. I recommend this book to the any health professional or student who needs to learn and more important understand and identify medically relevant fungal organisms. I wish all of my textbooks were this clear. If I had to choose one reference for mycology, this would be it. Bravo!!!

This instructional textbook presented the subject of Mycology in a format that enabled me to first understand the general subject matter (taxonomy, terminology, and specimen presentation), then it provided a rather thorough presentation of the common clinically significant organisms in a manner that enabled me to not only remember them for a test, but to learn them so that I understood their nature and how best to identify them in a laboratory setting. The latest edition also provides some very good pictures in a color plate section to help understand their morphology as seen on a culture plate as well as microscopically. Although not a complete mycology reference book, this is the textbook to get to study and learn the subject, supplement to any program, or to refresh your memory in that field of microbiology.

I ordered this book for a class I was taking for a medical technologist program. The pictures are very accurate to fungi you would see on a slide and the descriptions are to the point. This book was quite helpful.

This is a book that helps and guides the scientist in the identification of medical fungi important to human disease. Even though it is intended for the beginner, it also serves as a refresher for the more experienced. The script is clear and to the point, drawings and pictures making a visble statement. The colour plates of various fungi is an important aid in identification as most laboratories have to rely on microscopy and colonial appearance only. The common and the not so common fungi are described and the exam activities after each section provide the reader with a good indication of the knowledge gained. To be recommended as a study guide.

Use this book in a class where we pretty much HAD to teach ourselves. Yes, this really is a self-instructional book. The end of each chapter has self-tests that I found to be very helpful.

This is a very simple reading but contains good amount of material for med myc.
IT was just enough for me to get an A+ in my class and was a required text.
