Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Candace J. Krepel, MS (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This text is a companion to the author's textbook, Microbiology (W.B. Saunders, 1998), and is a summary of the important facts relating to medical microbiology, including test questions with answers. It is written in outline format and includes many tables.
Purpose: The stated purpose is twofold: to serve as a summary for medical personnel and as a tool for medical students studying to take their USMLE. In my opinion, it is not terribly useful for medical personnel. The format of the book is not useful as a diagnostic help, and the content is a brief review, without explanation of processes. For students, essential information is provided in a compact, fact-based structure that serves to both remind students of the content and facilitate retention.
Audience: This book is clearly written with medical students in mind. The author assumes that the reader has already studied and understands medical microbiology. As a professor of microbiology and medical education, he is well qualified to address the review needs of medical students.
Features: The structure, characteristics, disease manifestations, pathogenicity, clinical diagnosis, and treatment options of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites are covered. The many tables serve to help the student organize the material by indicating how related species are similar and how they differ. There is also a chapter of study hints, followed by a comprehensive exam. The answers to the exam questions are all fully explained.
Assessment: This is a good review of the essential information in the field of medical microbiology.
