Book Description: MicrobeCards are a fun and effective way to learn the key information about medically important microbes.Based on the popular trading card format, each deck contains 103 color-coded cards that are organized into five groups: gram-positive bacteria, gram-negative bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. The front of each card displays a unique and focused collection of microscopic and clinical images and the back of the card contains a standardized summary of six key features, including diseases caused, pathogenesis, immunity, epidemiology, diagnosis, and control. There's also an outline of the human body with red markings that show at a glance where the organisms cause disease.Unlike textbook chapters, where authors emphasize different points, the information provided on MicrobeCards is standardized. This makes direct comparison between organisms easy. MicrobeCards also offer complete flexibility; the cards can be organized by the student to suit his or her specific needs.MicrobeCards are an excellent reference, allowing users to focus on the most relevant information. Students of medical microbiology, especially those in medicine, nursing, and laboratory technology, will find the cards an invaluable study aid.
