"This small portable review book is a good resource for medical students and residents. It is not overly large, bulky or expensive. The test format of the questions makes a good review. As an individual who teaches and practices medical microbiology, I found the material challenging and the questions well designed to make students think. The answers are also explanatory and enhance the learning/review function by explaining why certain answers were incorrect. Overall, this is a good review book and I would recommend it to students. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
