Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rebecca T. Horvat, PhD, D (ABMM)(University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This review of essential facts in microbiology and immunology is designed to assist medical students preparing for the national board examinations.
Purpose: The sole purpose is to provide a summary of essential information in the area of medical microbiology and immunology.
Audience: The primary audience is second-year medical students, but the book also would be useful to faculty teaching these topics. The author has written 10 previous editions, has taught medical students for many years, and understands the need for a good review.
Features: The book starts with basic scientific principles of bacteriology and the response of the host and covers the basic pathogenesis of infection. These set the stage for the chapters that follow on such topics as diagnostic laboratory tests to detect infection and drugs that can be used to eradicate infection. The next sections cover detailed information on bacteria, viruses, and parasites that cause infections in humans. Each chapter includes quick summaries for a brief review of the topic, pearls that highlight key information that is often used in examination questions, and a large number of very good images of infectious agents and diagrams that allow for quick review. The almost 700 USMLE practice questions are likely the most valuable part of this book. Some of these are practice questions and others make up a practice exam.
Assessment: This book has a tradition with medical students that is well deserved. As with past versions, this one is well organized and easy to use. It is an excellent resource for reviewing a large amount of information in a quick and efficient manner.
