    Hear What Your Peers Have to Say About Understanding Viruses

    Posted by Lindsay White on Mar 8, 2017 12:36:58 PM

    Don't just take our word for it.

    We conducted extensive market reviews prior to publishing a third edition of the internationally acclaimed Understanding Viruses. Here's what some of our reviewers had to say:

    "I am impressed with the author's ability to include topical information, basic biology, and clinical relevance. This begins in the first chapter and is consistent throughout. This text fills a major gap between advanced virology and introductory biology texts… This text is the perfect blend of clinical virology, epidemiology, taxonomy, replication dynamics, and pathophysiology."

    "I really like this textbook. The approach to viruses corresponds to my thoughts of needing to know about the interaction of the virus and the host and not just the diseases that they cause."

    Unique Introductory Microbiology Text Scores Big with Reviewers

    Posted by Lindsay White on Dec 23, 2015 1:36:31 PM

    Last spring we conducted a review of our unique microbiology textbook, The Microbial Challenge: A Public Health Perspective, Third Edition by (the late) Robert Krasner and Teri Shors. The text is unique in that it covers the core microbiology concepts for an introductory microbiology course through a public health lens. This makes it perfect for students already in or considering a pre-health professions major, students interested in public health, non-majors who would benefit from a focus on how microbiology impacts everyday life, and students at schools that push an interdisciplinary focus.

Pommerville. During the focus group, students received a product demonstration of Navigate 2 Advantage Access, including a comprehensive and interactive eBook, assessments, and practice activities. After the demonstration, students completed a survey on their initial reactions, carried out a set of tasks, and provided their feedback on the Navigate 2 user experience as a whole from the student perspective.
