I got this book for my microbiology class on my 3rd year at medschool. I didnt really like it because the information it presents is way too summarized. Besides of that the graphics it has dont help too much, they arent clear at all and sometimes they confused me even more than the text itself. Personally I like to read more complex books in every subject I take, because they explain in a very detailed way every topic, more in the basis of LOGIC which helps you understand and acquire all the information better. This book just gives you a superficial overview emphasizing on MEMORIZING which is not helpful because you will surely forget all you read in this book in the next semesters, which is not the way medicine is made. Unfortunately I cant suggest any other book because all I had to do for my classes was to keep stuck to this one, so I had not time to look for another one. Here's an example on how they present every microorganism: 'Propionibacterium species are the most important causal agent in the genesis of acne'... but they never said anything on how, when, or why the acne is produced! this is what I mean by 'emphasizing on memorizing'. It should be explained more in the basis of logic like 'Propionibacterium acne is the most important causal agent in the genesis of acne because it encounters a proper culture medium on the hair folicles' epidermis of people who is producing high levels of hormones, it obstructs the pores, sebaceous secretions also stimulated by hormones begin to accumulate on the pore resulting in a pale-yellow point in the skin surrounded by a red zone caused by the inflamation reaction elicited against the bacteria'. I mean, I had to look for that information in another book because this does not cover it and that happened to me in every chapter and every microorganism I read on this text. As I said I cannot recommend any other book because I didnt have the time to look for it... just dont buy this one.
