I've been using the online textbook access in class rather than dragging the huge paper version around. That's been helpful but isn't of course absolutely necessary. However, in studying for last week's midterm I used all the online animations and quizzes and thought they were wonderful. I understand things about electron transport chain better now than I have ever before and will never forget them because I have this beautiful movie to play in my head. That alone probably helped me get three tricky questions right on my exam. I ended up acing the midterm and had the highest score. I think I'm the only one in my course using Mastering Microbiology. I'm a believer.
The version of the text sold at my CC's bookstore doesn't include the online access. I was totally psyched when I realized that by ordering through Amazon I not only paid $30 less but I got the Mastering Microbiology too. Score!
Also a little word to teh wise,
if you're a college student looking for a cheap book and there's a mastering included in it, just get the matsering, it includes a free digital copy of the book (another reason mastering is so fantastic)
I purchased the paperback version because I wasn't sure if I would like it enough to invest in the hardback (Indeed hardback worthy!).
FYI the paper is not the strongest, cover included. If you're a student and don't plan to use the book for long, buy paperback.
