Product description

Review

"As someone who has used this book in the past, I know it is excellent for teaching medical students. It also is reasonably priced for students who are dealing with the high cost of medical education. The most valuable features are the excellent pictures and figures that enhance the understanding of complex issues. Each chapter is followed by a few thought-provoking questions that can be used during teaching to encourage deeper understanding of the material.

Although written for medical students in the first years of training, the book also is very useful for students in advanced training such as residency or fellowships." - Rebecca T. Horvat, PhD, D(ABMM)(University of Kansas Medical Center), from Doody's Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! 8 Dec. 2013
By MEH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book I will hold on to forever. Incredibly valuable resource. It is very dense and may be difficult to study from directly, but keep it on your bookshelf and I promise you will find yourself referring back to it often if you work in microbiology, epidemiology, or medicine. It has comprehensive tables, tons of great photos and illustrations, and online resources that are great for studying or refreshing your memory. This book was an assigned text for a course I took that did a broad summary of pathogens in one semester, and it really contains WAY more information than could possibly be put into one graduate course. Regardless, it gave a great framework for the semester and is one of the rare ones that I don't want to sell or never see again in my life when the course is over. It is so thorough. Highly recommended! My only real complaint is that I wish it was available in hardcover. It does appear the earlier editions give you the choice, but I haven't looked at them so I can't speak to any differences in content. I do think the online material is worth the purchase of the new edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for Med Micro 12 Dec. 2013
By reader88 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really liked this book- this was really helpful in Med Micro despite the fact my class did not require it- I am very glad I bought this and used the online question bank that comes along when you buy the book new- I am a second year allopathic med student.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reliable information, Current, and Covers a wide variety of topics. Add this as your main Microbiology source. 18 July 2015
By Michael Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a quality text and my curriculum in medical school uses this frequently along with the "Jawetz" text. This text is slightly superior in information. The downside to this text is that it sometimes states something and then a few sentences later mentions that the previous information is irrelevant, outdated, or no longer used. This is frustrating for a medical student who has a reading heavy curriculum that leads me home to look at this text for hours on end and be tested from this text. Another downside is the surplus of information in the pages of charts in this book...

Altogether, in the realm of medical texts, this is not a bad book, although frustrating at times. Much more enjoyable to read compared to a Histology or Cell Biology book, though. My recommendation would be to compliment this book with Microbiology made Ridiculously Simple because that book helps give you easy ways to remember micro while this book gives you the "meat and potatoes" of the material that you need to know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for 1st 2 years of med school 3 Oct. 2015
By jensy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good book for 1st or 2nd year medical student level - occasionally a bit too much info on some bugs (e.g. details on less important toxins), but overall pretty good. Decent detail level from micro and clinical aspects. Not great at big picture from microbiology laboratory point of view. Probably best book I've found for med students at this level. Improvement would be questions, more big picture or more from clinical picture. But worth the money.
