useful textbook, March 21, 2005

I found the text a must-buy for my microbiology class. Without it I would have been lost. The parasites, viruses and bacteria were described with utmost clarity. Microbiology Study Guide by Patrick Leonardi had great test questions to study from. I also used Microbiology
