Test Bank For Microbiology with Diseases by Taxonomy, 6th Edition By Robert W. Bauman,ISBN-13: 9780135204009


For courses in introductory microbiology.

This package includes Mastering Microbiology.

Explore the invisible world of microbiology and why it matters to human life

Known for its unique art program and conversational writing style, Robert Bauman’s Microbiology with Diseases by Taxonomy consistently emphasizes why microbiology matters, especially in health care. The taxonomic organization of the disease chapters (Chapters 19–27) presents microbial diseases by type of pathogenic microbe, helping students recognize shared characteristics among categories of microbes.

The 6th Edition presents a revitalized and strengthened pedagogical framework based on how students learn best. Checkpoints appear throughout the text and direct students to interactive versions of text features in Mastering Microbiology. The interactive features provide just-in-time remediation that helps fill skill gaps and give students immediate feedback on their progress with the material. New interactive concept maps provide opportunities for students to make connections between concepts and can also be assigned in Mastering Microbiology. To emphasize how our understanding of microbiology is constantly expanding, the new edition integrates cutting-edge microbiology research that is critical for today’s students. New Research on Microbial Metabolism is introduced in Chapter 5 as well as recent findings on recombinant DNA technology and CRISPR technique are found in Chapter 8.

Plus, give students anytime, anywhere access with Pearson eText
Pearson eText
 is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience available within Mastering Microbiology. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place – even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily customize the table of contents and share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class.

For instructors not using Mastering Microbiology, Pearson eText can also be adopted on its own as the main course material. Learn more about Pearson eText or contact your rep for purchase options.
