Just like its 'complete version' sibling, the price of this 'short version' "Microbiological Applications" lab manual is on the high side. However, the book did a good job in sieving and replicating, (as concise as possible), the contents of its 'big-brother'. This manual dealt with every practical issue relating to undergraduate microbiology course. It is a compact body of practical information, which also paid enough tribute to the theoretical portion of its subject. Almost every information undergraduates would need in microbiology lab is present in it. Still, I would add that the structure of this abridged book makes it more suitable for revisions. Anybody who wants an indepth coverage of microbiological techniques should simply add eight dollars to the listed price of this book and (instead) buy the 'complete version'. Go for this 'short version' only if you need a memory refresher.
