Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marion C. Cohen, PhD (SUNY Downstate Medical Center)
Description: This is a summary of the information discussed in a basic immunology course. It is presented in an outline format.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a review of immunology that will allow students to answer questions on the USMLE Step 1. It is not meant to replace traditional texts, but rather to assist in quick recall while studying. The outline form lends itself to this and may be particularly helpful to some students.
Audience: The book is specifically written for students preparing for accrediting exams. It would not be useful to any other group. There is insufficient detail to allow someone to do self-teaching of this often difficult topic. The author is Professor and Head of the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Minnesota. He brings a wealth of experience to the topic.
Features: All of the major topics found in a basic immunology course are covered in this book. Key words are highlighted. This is particularly useful for a quick skim because, although there is a table of contents, there is no index. Figures are black, white, and gray and have been adapted from other texts. No practice questions are included.
Assessment: This book may be useful to students preparing for USMLE Part 1 — particularly those who feel their notes are incomplete or unreadable. The very basic concepts are described but details are sketchy or lacking entirely. Without an index, it is difficult to determine precisely what is missing. On the other hand, the cost of the book is relatively modest for the amount of information presented.
