    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.

    Review: “Lewin’s GENES XI is the best molecular biology textbook with a high reputation."

    Posted by Lindsay White on Dec 23, 2015 12:23:58 PM

    We recently conducted a review of our best-selling and highly regarded, GENES XI textbook. We sought feedback from instructors who are currently or have very recently used the text in their molecular biology course and instructors who have not adopted the current Eleventh Edition.

    Specifically, instructors had this to say about the text’s organization and comprehensive coverage of content:

    “For the level of class I teach [the course is open to both upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students], the topic depth is excellent. In some cases, there is more depth than I will need/use, but topics are presented in a way that this extra depth does not preclude the student/reader from gaining the knowledge and level of depth the instructor is targeting.”

    Posted by Lindsay White on Dec 23, 2015 11:58:27 AM

    In planning for a fourth edition of our comprehensive climatology text for the upper-level undergraduate or introductory-level graduate course, we conducted a revision survey with instructors who are currently or have very recently used the text in their course and instructors who have not adopted the current Third Edition.

    Specifically, instructors had this to say about the text’s depth of coverage and student-readability:

    …it is one of the most comprehensive treatments of the science of climatology that I have encountered…This is a solid textbook and is worthy of use in climatology courses.”

    – Timothy J. Wallace, Mississippi State University
