I got this dictionary on the suggestion of my professor and was delighted with it. It arrived promptly and in good condition, has good sized, well-spaced text and provides concise, complete definitions. It uses language that is easy to understand and summarises key points about theories and organisms nicely without giving excessive detail. I found it a great study aid and anticipate using it constantly throughout the remainder of my degree and postgraduate studies. Overall, a great buy for an excellent price - $50 cheaper than in my university bookstore!
It was an excellent book, much greater than my expectations. The binding is like original, the pages are crispt. It a very useful book for a Microbiologist. Frank Carr
From reading the other reviews, I was hopeful that buying this book would mean the end of me scouring the internet for definitions of biology terms. That didn't happen. While it has some great in-depth definitions, I just don't find about 40% of the words I look for! My concentration is genetics and immunology (which this dictionary should cover, on an undergrad level at least) and I've found this book to be more a source of frustration than aid. It was not a worthwhile purchase. So I'm still in the market for a good bio dictionary.
I have owned this book for more than 5 years. It has been my collection books for a long time. This is a great reference when I was taking all my microbiology and molecular biology classes in undergrad. This book has helped me tremendously on understanding the concept and definition of the microbio for the last 2 years of my college. I cherish this dictionary a lot,I am only trying to sell it b/c of moving, and that I am no longer in microbiology field. But from the bottom of my heart, this is definitely a great resource to look up if you need a better understanding of biology.
This book helped me survive graduate school - especially during my written preliminary exams. It is a comprehensive source of information, and it happily contained every word I wished to look up. I would not call it simply a 'dictionary', as the explanations are very in-depth and detailed. Seriously, this is one you need in your personal collection.
Singleton's Dictonary of Microbiology and Molecular Biology is wonderfully comprehensive, very current and a bargain at $62. This dictionary at 1,000-plus pages is a must-have book.
THe dictionary is excelent, specially to resolve urgent dudes. I recomend improve the figures and add more ones.
All I can say is that i found what i was looking for. Good explanation, ease of use....wonderfull
