  • by Krystal

    While it's a lot to learn this book really explains every aspect you need to know. You may find yourself reading over and over and over but it gets the job done!

    Microbiology was the class that required this book and it was very helpful. You're learning so much at once you need a good book and this one was perfect!

    I wish it was a little less easier to read. I had a hard time retaining the information.

    With the instructor's help, I was able to understand the book and class better.

    The least helpful part of the book was the lack of illustrations in the book.

    The most interesting part of this book was all the new information I learned and also the examples.

    The best feature of this book was it was extremely easy to read.

    If the information went into greater detail it would be an excellent book.

    There are a few things that could be explained better. There are some definitions that are hard to find.

    Overall, this was a great book. It made Microbiology easier. Seems like the authors just assumed that we should know some of the terminology. They needed to explain some of them better.

    I really enjoyed learning about the different ways that the body gets sick/fights disease. I also learned practical things like what affects pregnant persons specifically and how to fight disease/ help out immune systems. Overall a decent book but the information can be challenging at times. Some topics were way more interesting than others but thankfully some basic biology background helped.

    This book covered A LOT and was very technical with lots of italicized bacteria names, etc. Also, to get through this book our class seemed to go at rapid pace and the chapters are long and dense. It helped in the class to pre-read the chapters before the lectures but often our teacher couldn't even get through everything in the chapter so it was a balance of: do you get a head start so that all the technical phrases make more sense in a rapid lecture or do you wait to see what your teacher will focus on because there is like NO way they can get through all of this in a semester class.

    There were plenty of definitions and it explained things better than the professor.

    The book was very well structured and therfore it was helpful for this class.

    This book was not particularly helpful in my Microbiology class through no fault of its own though. My professor worked off a separate set of notes that mostly did not coincide with the text of this book. It was helpful with its metabolism diagrams though.

    This book primarily focuses on microbes and their effect and relationship with the human body, In that subject, the book was quite comprehensive, at least to a student new to the topic.

    I used this book for Microbiology and I loved learning about Bacterial DNA structure and how certain organisms work. It was very interesting and full of knowledge .

    the charts were very helpful and the illustration was helpful as well to give a better understanding of what one can not physically see.

  • by Allison

    It was very easy to understand what was going on in the chapters. The most useful thing that I learned from the book was about bacteriophages and how they worked.

    The layout of the book is very simple and allows the student to easier understand more elaborate systems.

    I learned that sexually transmitted diseases are now called sexually transmitted infections.

    The diagrams and pictures were the most helpful to me.
