Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charles E. Edmiston, Jr., PhD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This is the sixth edition of a highly successful series of review texts published under the Appleton & Lange label from McGraw Hill. It is a concise review of the medically important microbial pathogens and the sentinel aspects of basic immunology for medical student preparing for the USMLE (National Boards).
Purpose: This is a highly organized and concise review of both medical microbiology and immunology. In addition, the authors have clearly presented to the reader those key concepts that relate to the clinical findings, diagnosis, transmission, and microbial pathogenesis of bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic infections.
Audience: Although this particular review text may have been designed as a study aid for medical students preparing for the National Boards, it could also be used as an appropriate secondary reference for a broad range of allied health professionals.
Features: The text is organized into 11 units, and in the first seven basic and clinical microbiology and immunology are civered. Unit 8 represents a unique review within a review, a brief summary of the medically important bacteria and viruses. Unit 9 is a test of students' understanding of clinical concepts through a series of clinical case scenarios. The last two units are focused on sample USMLE practice questions. The text has numerous tables and figures to enhance the learning process and the authors have included an excellent index for quick location of selected topics.
Assessment: For over 20 years, this book has essentially become the standard review text used by medical students preparing to take the USMLE. It has withstood the test of time with numerous revisions which are clinically relevant and encompass our current understanding of microbial pathogenesis. Of all of the numerous review texts of microbiology and immunology that are currently on the market, this book represents my personal choice in part due to content and organization as well as the pedagogic experiences of Drs. Levinson and Jawetz.
