5.0 out of 5 stars Immunobiology by Janeway,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology (Paperback)I purchased this book, as part of a immunology class I'm currently taking, at the University of Copenhagen. A great feature for me was the intro chapter (chapter one) where all major parts of immunobiology is cooked down to 35 pages. I have read a further 150 pages now, and still enjoy reading it, with it's very easy to understand language, which makes it excellent both for people new in the immunology world, and as an up-to-date encyclopedia for the experienced immunologist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable book.,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology, 8th Edition (Immunobiology: The Immune System (Janeway)) (Kindle Edition)I found this book to be invaluable as a second year Biomedical Sciences undergraduate, I used it on numerous occasions to help me study towards the module "Microbiology and Immunology". This textbook is heavily illustrated, which I find helpful in understanding the content.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible for Immunology study,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology (Paperback)Janeway's Immunobiology has been such a standard in the field that it is revered. It is an indepth study across a range of subjects in Immunobiology the text is concise and articulate but the real strength of this book are the figures. They are really well done and help visualise some of the most abstract concepts of immunology. The one let down of this volume is that there is no accompanying CD-rom with access to the figures and the brilliant animated movies. Instead it directs you to a website that is quite fussy and requires constant internet connection (which being a university student I don't have at home, only on campus). Still an excellent and unsurpassed resource for Immunology students.
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent textbook but I'm not convinced the kindle edition does it justice.,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology, 8th Edition (Immunobiology: The Immune System (Janeway)) (Kindle Edition)I've found this textbook to be well written and leads in nicely from simple aspects of an area in to the more detailed aspects. It has complemented information from lectures and has easy to understand diagrams. However, I'm not sure that the kindle edition is the best way to experience this book. I have been using a nexus 7 and allow the text is sharp the screen feels a bit to small since you have to zoom into to text to make it readable. This makes changing pages and viewing diagrams more fiddly than it should be.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide to immunobiology,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology (Paperback)The best immunobiology textbook. Useful and easy to understand diagrams. Useful for medics ( ICSM pathology exams!) as well as biologists
4.0 out of 5 stars A good and recommended read for immunologists,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology (Paperback)A great read with much detail, but quite heavy reading and most of the content probably not quite suitable for an undergraduate not specialising in immunology.
5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for anyone studying immunology,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology (Paperback)This book is an absolute must for anyone studying immunology. It gives a solid background knowledge, starting from the very beginning and walking the reader through all aspects of immune function. It's easy to read and the pictures are of great help, too. I can only thoroughly recommend it.
5.0 out of 5 stars amazing!,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology (Paperback)helped me through my first year of uni. incredible book, very informative and useful. will help me all through my degree
5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology (Paperback)Any medical student doing a pathology or immunology course should get this and read it from cover to cover. It's easy to read as the very complex stuff is easy to skip over but has a wide range of info from basics to advanced and fairly up to date stuff
5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book!,
This review is from: Janeway's Immunobiology (Paperback)Brilliant book, great diagrams and has everything you need. Bit of an Immunology Bible. Far better than a lot of similar textbooks recommended to me. Lots of in depth detail, I'm doing a MSc in Immunology and know I will constantly refer back and use it. Would definitely recommend.
