Infectious disease as you’ve never seen it before
I must say I’m a big fan of mnemonics. It’s the way I learn. I’m a very visual learner. Always have been. I often draw pictures in order to memorize complex concepts in medicine. It takes a long time however and I have trouble coming up with them. This book certainly does all the work for me. I have been having trouble Learning all the different pathogens and memorizing them all. But this book makes it really easy. The format is perfect. I always think about microbiology made ridiculously simple which I love by the way and this is even better than that because it lays out everything with images for each infectious disease process. Makes it much easier to memorize and covers everything I will need to know. I’m hoping the author will cover more subject matters in the same format. Kudos!
