This is a book about microorganisms: viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoans, and multicellular parasites. It is a text on microbiology, and covers basic microbiology, medical microbiology, and some industrial microbiology. It is an unusual text because it offers the student an opportunity to learn by coloring illustrations in a planned and meaningful sequence. The coloring approach opens the subject of microorganisms to high school students, yet college and graduate students will also find the content of this text challenging. A great deal of information can be gained from studying and working properly designed illustrations. "A picture is worth a thousand words." The student who colors the plates of this book will find real satisfaction in understanding the subject matter because it can be visualized. When recall of the material is required, the picture, complete with thoughtfully applied colors, quickly comes to mind. This book is a very important way to learn about a broad spectrum of microorganisms and how they interact with humans. Happy Coloring!

This reference answers the most important questions that form the foundation of Microbiology within 6 laminated pages. Carry this core material in a handy format to use beyond the course and into higher level and career courses, then even further into your working life as a refresher. With many diagrams in a small package, you will not need to crack the textbook to review.

Suggested uses:
o Students - especially relevant for those majoring in science or a health care related field
o Quick Reference - instead of digging into the textbook to find a core answer you need while studying, use the guide to reinforce quickly and repeatedly
o Memory - refreshing your memory repeatedly is a foundation of studying, have the core answers handy so you can focus on understanding the concepts
o Test Prep - no student should be cramming, but if you are, there is no better tool for that final review
