This book came with a microbiology textbook I bought on ebay for $50 for both books. Unfortunately my college required a different studyguide. This one is almost just like the one I was forced to buy for $28+tax. This book tells all you need to know about labs you will be doing in class, use of microscopes, basic microbiology, Environmental Influence & Control of Microbial Growth, Culture Techniques, Controlling the risk & spread of bacterial infections, medical microbiology, bacterial identification, medical microbiology &immunology introduction and survey of microscopic organisms. This would be a great book for the college student needing extra help in micro or maybe a teacher looking for supplemental information to give students.
