    Microbiology (STARS Series)

    This book has too much information in it for a beginning class. I would not recommend it to anyone. The book simply gets into too much detail. There are many better available.

    Microbiology (STARS Series)

    This text is simply too detailed for the demanding schedule of most medical students. Furthermore, the author has a tendancy to ramble at times.
