5.0 out of 5 stars Medical students dream come true 4 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Are you baffeled by bacteria? Do you want to learn the difference between Gram positive and negative, and still have a life? Then this is the book for you. Clear, concise, no-nonsense. It tells you what you want to know and how it applies - and it's lab coat pocket sized!!

5.0 out of 5 stars the best atlas for clinical microbiology college course 19 Dec 2001
By Kelly Lue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i used this atlas everyday in clinical microbiology lab. every page in the atlas is printed on high glossy quality paper. there are numerious color photos detailing how each microbe responds to certain diagnostic tests preformed in the lab. in my class we were given an unknown microbe and had to run tests on it to determine what the organism was and hand in are report - i could not have kept up if it wasn't for this book. it is very compact in size (not information) so it is very handy to have around in the lab while you run the tests and you can compare your results right on the spot. it fits right into the pocket of your lab coat. the price of the book is well worth it and i used it more than the lab book the college insisted that i purchase. FYI - i am pursuing a masters in microbiology and with the assistance of this book i got an a in this course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Compact Paper Back Book 14 Mar 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A nice short compact medical microbiology text. I didn't use it much for the theory, rather I used it for the diagrams and especially the photographs. The photographs were good. I particulary enjoyed the bacteriology section. Many bacterial culture plates were demonstrated in photograph form. Though it covered the most common types of diseases, I wish it would of covered the more esoteric diseases that are commonly placed on medical board examinations. Nonetheless, the book is useful and worth the price if your looking for decent photos demonstrating laboratory diagnostics and some standard photo's of bacteria, fungi, and viruses.

A very concise, yet informative handbook. Excellent source of information covering medically important bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungal species. The illustrations and pictures are excellent, and tables on infections create a great tool for diagnosis and study.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, great pictures for microbiology 19 Jun 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The pictures in this atlas were very clear. It made microbiology more fun to learn. The pictures of bacteria, viruses and fungi complimented my preparation for the test. I also found Microbiology Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers by Patrick Leonardi to be an excellent source for question test preparation for my university exams.
