The College Network microbiology book

  1. 0
    Hi,
    Has anyone bought the microbiology book by the college network? If so, is it supposed to say "general studies" before the title? Just want to make sure I'm not buying any knock off..

    Yes it does, I got mine from Amazon for like $25. Its a pretty good book compared to the others. I passed with a B on Micro with that book and Micro Demystified along with Vangonotes.

    Are those the only study aides you used for Micro?

    Thanks!

    I only ended up using this book for like 5% of my studying. I mostly studies college network's microbiology study guide and the practice exams given by excelsior.

    Ther practice exams given by excelsior..are they free and how accurate are they? I am just now realizing how much time and money I have wasted with TCN. Ugh. I did just order the SG 101 for Micro bio today! I am hoping that helps to sift through some of the 42 chapters from the TCN book.

    I was wondering the same thing. I am going to purchase the practice exam this friday so I will let you know. I plan to buy them from now on, I have the micro book and sg101 but it seems like all I need is sg101 because it follows the content guide to the T!!! So hopefully I can test in april and then do a&p in may.

    Hi, Yes, that is the right one... I also bought it on Ebay, it was a 'Mircro Bundle' that a former student was selling... various resources for a low price. It seemed to follow the content guide very closely. I also used Tortora's text, which is a very cool book.. when I needed clarification. 'Demystified' was the first book I read. Practice Exams are a MUST! I considered SG101, but figured I already had more than enough...

    I took the exam on 3/8 and got an A !!
