ATLANTA—A new review book is designed to make studying easier for students in medical school, graduate microbiology programs or undergraduate pre-med programs and individuals preparing for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).
The review book, “Lippincott Illustrated Reviews: Microbiology, 4th ed.,” takes a unique approach to describing infectious diseases, what causes them and what they look like. The book includes summary tables, clinical images and question banks.
Dr. Cynthia Nau Cornelissen, director of the Center for Translational Immunology in the Institute for Biomedical Sciences (IBMS) at Georgia State University, IBMS professor and a Distinguished University Professor, is the first author of the book, which is published by Wolters Kluwer.
“While traditional microbiology textbooks can be very dense and complicated, this book is an excellent tool for helping pre-med or medical students, individuals studying for medical board exams and students entering graduate microbiology programs to master essential microbiology concepts,” Cornelissen said.
The vividly illustrated review book uses concise writing and over 400 colorful illustrations to bring microorganisms to life and make complex concepts more accessible. This edition of the popular review series makes exam preparation more efficient with an emphasis on exam-relevant content and hundreds of board-style review questions designed to help students prepare for the USMLE.
The book’s lecture-style outlines and chapter overviews highlight the most critical information, guide students step-by-step through essential concepts and make studying more organized and effective. The review tool also uses illustrated case studies to help students apply their knowledge to common clinical scenarios.
