Description of Alcamo's Fundamentals of Microbiology 9th Edition (PDF)

Alcamo's Fundamentals of Microbiology 9th edition by Jeffrey C. Pommerville is a great book for microbiology study available for PDF download. As you embark upon your studies of the microbial world and a fascinating world it will be you will wonder how important some topics are that will be covered. You may ask yourself or your instructor how important is this topic to my career? If it is nursing, obviously the material on infectious diseases, epidemiology (the scientific and medical study of the causes, transmission, and control of a disease within a population), and immunology (the study of how our bodies fight an infection or disease) are critical. If you are planning on pharmacy school, add antimicrobial drugs to that list.

But what about some of the other “science” topics, like microbial metabolism and genetics? Are these important to a successful career? A few years ago, the forum section on a Web site called (“A Nursing Community for Nurses”) asked nurses “What [microbiology] topics keep resurfacing in your nursing classes?” Among the top responses were some obvious ones, such as antibiotics and antibiotic resistance, infectious diseases, and immunity.

But also on that list was microbial genetics. Perhaps more revealing were the responses to a second question: “What do you wish that you had learned better in microbiology that you thought you would never see again [in your nursing classes]?” Among the answers submit- ted was metabolism.
