As with the successful first edition, the new edition of Microbiology: A Clinical Approach is written specifically for pre-nursing and allied health students. It is clinically-relevant throughout and uses the theme of infection as its foundation. Microbiology is student-friendly: its text, figures, and electronic resources have been carefully designed to help students understand difficult concepts and keep them interested in the material.
The Second Edition includes a robust instructor ancillary package that allows professors to easily incorporate the book’s unique approach into their lectures. In addition to the many free resources for students―including the E-Tutor, Bug Parade, Flashcards, and MicroMovies―the new edition is supported by Garland Science Learning System.
The Garland Science Learning System is a homework platform designed to evaluate and improve student performance and allows instructors to select assignments on specific topics and review the performance of the entire class, as well as individual students, via the instructor dashboard. Students receive immediate feedback on their mastery of the topics, and will be better prepared for lectures and classroom discussions. The user-friendly system provides a convenient way to engage students while assessing progress. Performance data can be used to tailor classroom discussion, activities, and lectures to address students’ needs precisely and efficiently.

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
"This book is true to its title, providing an up-to-date overview of infection from a clinical perspective. However, with credit, the book does not ignore the basic science behind infection, with the introductory chapters covering general background information such as the fundamental chemistry for microbiology, characteristics of micro-organisms and host immune response. The main advantage of this book is that it is organized by systems: linking the clinical syndrome to its microbiology. The easily navigable chapters are enriched with outstanding illustrations and informative tables, and finished with salient summary points. In fact, the learning aids presented far exceeded my expectations for a textbook."
"...this book is different from the other microbiology textbooks currently on the market. The main difference is that it makes a real and tangible effort to put students, or better, the learning process, center stage."
–British Society for Immunology
"The book is extensively illustrated throughout with photographs and easy to understand schematics. It is well-supported by a website for students....Instructor resources include...PowerPoint slides, question banks, and even lecture notes. These are so good I will be using it!"
"The book is well suited for beginning nursing students and undergraduate students preparing for healthcare careers. The authors’ educational and teaching experiences situate them well to write this expansive introduction."
–Doody’s Book Notes
