For the Student
A Student Study Guide by Linda Sherwood of Montana State University is
a valuable resource that provides learning objectives, study outlines, learning
activities, and self-testing material to help students master course content.
The Microbiology, sixth edition, Online Learning Center (www.mhhe.com/prescott6)
provides self-quizzes, terminology exercises, study tips, web resources, etc.,
to aid students in mastering and integrating content.
The sixth edition of Laboratory Exercises in Microbiology by
John P. Harley has been prepared to accompany the text. Like the text, the
manual provides a balanced introduction to laboratory techniques and principles
that are important in each area of microbiology. The class-tested exercises
are modular and short so that an instructor can easily choose only those exercises
that fit his or her course. The sixth edition contains recipes for all reagents
and media. New exercises in biotechnology have been added to this edition.
A new appendix provides practice in solving dilution problems.
Microbes in Motion, third edition, is an interactive, easy-to-use
general microbiology CD-ROM that helps students actively explore and understand
microbial structure and function through audio, video, animations, illustrations,
slide shows, and text. Eighteen books cover topics from microbial genetics
HyperClinic, second edition, CD-ROM allows students to evaluate
realistic case studies that include patient histories and descriptions of signs
and symptoms. Students can either analyze the results of physician-ordered
clinical tests to reach a diagnosis, or evaluate a case study scenario and
decide which clinical samples should be taken and which diagnostic tests should
be run. More than 200 pathogens are profiled, 105 case studies presented, and
46 diagnostic tests covered.
For the Instructor
The Digital Content Manager CD-ROM is the image resource for course
presentations. The DCM contains virtually all of the line art, photos, and
tables from Microbiology, sixth edition, as well as animations, videos,
active-art, and a PowerPoint Lecture set for each chapter. See page xx for
Instructor Testing and Resource CD-ROM is offered free on request to
adopters of the text. This cross-platform CD provides a database of over 2,500
objective questions for preparing exams and a grade-recording program.
A set of 250 full-color acetate transparencies is available to supplement
classroom lectures. These have been enhanced for projection and are available
to adopters of the sixth edition.
The Online Learning Center (www.mhhe.com/prescott6) provides multiple
resources for course enhancement. Moreover, all the McGraw-Hill media resources
are easily loaded into course management systems such as WebCT or Blackboard.
