Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than 50 clinical cases help you excel in your microbiology coursework and on the USMLE Step 1

The Case Files series is an award-winning learning system proven to improve exam scores. This series helps you to learn in the context of real patients instead of simply memorizing. Case Files: Microbiology: Second Edition presents 50+ clinical cases with open-ended questions which weave basic science concepts into the clinical scenario. Each case includes an extended discussion (including definitions and a pathophysiology discussion), key points, and 3-5 USMLE-style comprehension questions. The authors are experienced teachers from the University of Texas-Houston Medical School in Houston, Texas and Loma Linda University School of Medicine in Loma Linda, California.

Book News Annotation:

Focused on course exams and the USMLE, and fully updated to reflect current thinking and questions, these 50 case files include detailed presentations, diagnostic questions, clinical correlation, approaches (including objectives and definitions), diagnosis, treatment and prevention, a set of comprehension questions along with answers, and microbiology "pearls." However, this goes beyond merely asking and answering questions, as the editors offer articles on applying the basic sciences to clinical medicine and antimicrobial therapy, all cases include comprehensive references and many cases include clinical photographs. Indices are arranged to ensure readers can locate cases, disorders and symptoms. Designed as an exam study guide, this also works as a study outline or supplemental reading for courses and as a refresher. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
