Book PrefaceBRS Microbiology and Immunology, 5th Edition
This concise review of microbiology and immunology is designed specifically for medical and graduate students for successful preparation for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) as well as other examinations. This newest edition remains a succinct description of the most important microbiological and immunological concepts and critical details needed to understand important human infections and the immune system function and malfunction.
The book is divided into 12 chapters starting with basic information and bringing the student quickly to the level of detail and comprehension needed for Step 1. There is both a ‘‘bug’’ approach followed by an organ-systems approach. They include critical signs/ symptoms, epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis of infections and immune diseases along with the mechanisms of preventing infection and means of identifying and diagnosing the causative agent.
The outline format facilitates rapid review of important information. Numerous tables with clinical correlations have been added along with updated images. Each chapter is followed by review questions and answers and explanations that reflect the style and content of the USMLE. We have added four 50 question comprehensive examinations at the end of the book. Each has the same subject distribution generally found on Step 1 and so may be used as a practice exam and self-assessment tool to help students diagnose their weaknesses prior to, during, and after reviewing microbiology and immunology.
