Awesome Microbiology  April 15, 2011
by


This was the required text for the microbiology class I took. I found this textbook to be very informative and helpful. The class was an introduction to microbiology and this textbook was perfect for it! It explains concepts and ideas clearly and has many illustrations to increase understanding of structures and the details of microbial organisms, such as viral envelopes and bacterial cell walls. Well I decided to go with ecampus because not only are they reliable it was $40 cheaper with ecampus then through the school. This textbook is excellent!!! Buy it and see yourself!!!






Microbiology An Introduction with MyMicrobiologyPlace Website: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

This #1 selling non-majors microbiology book is praised for its straightforward presentation of complex topics, careful balance of concepts and applications, and proven art that teaches. In its Tenth Edition, Tortora/Funke/Case responds to the #1 challenge of the microbiology course: teaching a wide range of reader levels, while still addressing reader under-preparedness. The Tenth Edition meets readers at their respective skill levels.

First, the book signals core microbiology content to readers with the new and highly visual Foundation Figures that readers need to understand before moving forward in a chapter. Second, the book gives readers frequent opportunities for self-assessment with the new Check Your Understanding questions that correspond by number to the chapter Learning Objectives. Then, a new “visual learning” orientation includes: an increased number of the popular Diseases in Focus boxes, newly illustrated end-of-chapter Study Outlines that provide students with visual cues to remind them of chapter content, and new end-of-chapter Draw It questions.

The all-new art program is contemporary without compromising Tortora/Funke/Case’s hallmark reputation for precision and clarity. Content revisions include substantially revised immunity chapters and an increased emphasis on antimicrobial resistance, bioterrorism, and biofilms. The new Get Ready for Microbiology workbook and online practice and assessment materials help readers prepare for the course.

Microbiology: An Introduction is a superb textbook. All the introductory microbiology materials are explained in remarkable details and simplicity. The figures that accompany the text are beautiful and very informative. The concepts are so clearly presented that it is easy to go back and read over a few chapters of this book to enhance and reinforce the understanding of particular subjects.

Intended for those interested in learning the basics of microbiology.
