Excellent book

The text in this book is fantastic, very clear and concise - easy for a student (like me) to read on their own and get a very clear understanding of. The book covers everything from the discovery of microorganisms to viruses, bacteria, protazoa, prions and the chemistry in cellular metabolism. Chapter listing: Microbiology - The Science Microscopy Cell Structure and Taxonomy Diversity of Microorganisms Part 1 Diversity of Microorganisms Part 2 Biochemistry Microbial Physiology and Genetics Controlling Microbial Growth in Vitro Using Antimicrobial Agents to Control Microbial Groth in Vivo Microbial Ecology Epidemiology and Public Health Healthcare Epidemiology: Nosocomial Infections and Infection Control Diagnosing Infectious Diseases Pathogens of Infectious Diseases Nonspecific Host Defense Mechanisms Specific Host Defense Mechanisms: An Introduction to Immunology Major Viral, Bacterial, and Fungal Diseases of Humans Major Parasitic Diseases of Humans: An Introduction to Medical Parasitology So you can see, this book covers a variety of topics - and is a fantastic introduction to the field of microbiology. The negatives of using this book - if you are a visual learner the diagrams are sub-par at best. Now I'm not talking about the tables, the tables are fantastic. The diagrams are minimal, and not very helpful. I am lucky in that my Micro professor has overheads of the diagrams from a different book that he uses.


love the savings I made compared to college textbook stores. I would deffinitely order again


Order came in the condition as represented in the listing. Great transaction. I would purchase from this seller again.

Burton's Microbiology

This well written text book is helpful in grasping the various basic concepts of microbiology.

Interesting text on microbiology, fun to learn.

I utilized this text for my microbiology class in undergrad. It lists the major parasites, molds and bacteria. Parasites were the most interesting because it shows you what foods are associated with what parasite. Pretty gross stuff but was not boring at all. I also used: Microbiology Study Guide: Key Review Question and Answers, isbn 0971999635, to help me with test preparation. The questions were quite similar to what I found on my college microbiology tests. Both books helped me to achieve very good scores on my tests.
