4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for the bugs., 28 July 2013
This review is from: Medical Microbiology: With STUDENTCONSULT online access, 18e (Paperback)
Medical Microbiology 18th ed

I found this book exceptionally good for consolidation on nearly all diseases with a basis in infections by microorganisms. I think this book is excellent for earlier years going into medicine to have a framework on how to look into diseases as it is very well laid out covering each condition with headings including pathogenesis, immunopathology, etc. In the later years, or as a guide for exams, this book comes in very helpful in terms of a good revision tool as well as helpful guide.
The chapters are organised very well, with very useful structuring of each topic into an easily readable resource for the medical student. It is also structured very logically into areas based on the microorganisms, for example, into chapters covering viruses, bacteria, etc.

Explanations and pathologies are very well and accurately described, with good use of photographs and illustrations to make life for a student that much easier. One of the best things about the book is that at the beginning of each chapter there is a useful `Key Points' box for those who need to get information very fast and concisely.

This book is reasonably priced and I believe should easily be on an essential reading list for both prospective medical students as well as earlier year medical students. Since I have been reading it I have been using it more often in regards to consolidating and also studying into other areas of medical microbiology.
