4.0 out of 5 stars A slightly more detailed medical microbiology textbook, 4 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Lecture Notes: Medical Microbiology and Infection (Paperback)
Having just reviewed Medical Microbiology and Infection at a Glance on Amazon and stating that book was sufficient to get you through exams and to prepare you for FY years I now approach this book. This book would be worth using if you have used the above title, made sense of it and want some more detail.

This book classically like many microbiology texts approaches microbiology from the perspective of microbe, host and then specific system conditions. This method of tackling medical microbiology is a traditional one but perhaps outdated now from a student perspective.

Perhaps what I find frustrating with this book is that I want to know what microbes are likely to have been the causative agents of this condition in a certain patient. This book does not necessarily facilitate you using it in this manner and you may need to read parts of several chapters to get the answer that you are looking for.

If however you are willing to work with this or as a medical student are not seeking to use this text in that manner then this book certainly gives you a great depth of knowledge on this speciality that does not go too far beyond the level expected of a student. The senior clinical tutor commented to me when looking at this title that he would be very impressed if any final year medical student knew the content of this book as this would allow him/her to know how to approach the management of nearly all infections that they are likely to encounter in a district general hospital at least during their FY years.

In conclusion I would advise using this book if you are looking for slightly more detail on this topic without going to the extent of a full textbook. Should you be looking for a textbook as such on this topic then might I encourage you to consider Mims' Medical Microbiology: With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access, 5e as this is certainly a textbook on this topic, going beyond the scope of knowledge expected on most undergraduate medical courses but approaching this topic in a student friendly manner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Medical microbiology and infection lecture notes, 12 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Lecture Notes: Medical Microbiology and Infection (Paperback)
The books contains three main parts, part one an introduction to microbes and the infections the can cause. Parts two covers main aspects of microbes and their medical implication. Part three provide details on anti microbial therapy. Over all the books can give a good and a quick reference to understand a topic before the lecture and have a good idea. Medical and health science students could greatly benefit from this book.
