Its over simplified

It is less involved than the over produced book, but is a little under developed in the questions. They are too simplistic as compared to the actual test material.

excellent service

I received the book on time, it was at a very good price and in an excellent condition

Just as advertised

I not only received my book in a timely manner but also in great condition just as advertised. I'll keep this supplier in my favorites list for future purchases.


THIS BOOK IS EXCELLENT. I originally purchased it for a course in undergraduate Microbiology. 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. Now that I am in Medical school, I still refer back to it as an introduction and refresher for more advanced medical courses. 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. When you are short on time, it is much better to review chapters in this book than to scan and decipher numerous pages of medical text when many of the important main points are presented clearly in this text. Although, I recommend using it as an adjunct to your class lecture notes. If you are looking for a dry, banal book that will put you to sleep, this is not it. ANYONE WHO GAVE THIS BOOK A BAD REVIEW IS WRONG!!! THIS BOOK IS EXCELLENT!!! BUY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF!!!

Excellent book for college microbiology

I used this book for microbiology class and it is very helpful. Tortora is a great writer. Each chapter is very organized and quite easy to understand. I also used the following:Microbiology Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers by Patrick LeonardiThe second book had the type of questions that were asked on my microbiology undergraduate exams. My study group and I found both books excellent
