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..

    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 !!

    Hi... no they are not free. $75 for a 2 part practice test... worth every penny!! It will give you an idea of the types of questions on the real exam. Be sure you understand every question, every answer, and the rationale for each. Even though it was only 2 weeks ago, I can't remember if there were any word for word questions on the exam, but VERY similar!!

    Here is a quote from LunahRN, who has addressed the issue of College Network in the past: " And I always tell EC students who have signed TCN contracts and who are upset at spending all that extra money that the best "revenge" is success in the program! Get some return on your investment."
