The Tenth Edition meets students at their respective skill levels.
First, the book signals core microbiology content to students with the new and highly visual Foundation Figures that students need to understand before moving forward in a chapter. Second, the book gives students frequent opportunities for self assessment with the new Check Your Understanding questions that correspond by number to the chapter Learning Objectives. Then, a new visual learning orientation includes an increased number of the popular Diseases in Focus boxes, newly illustrated end of chapter Study Outlines that provide students with visual cues to remind them of chapter content, and new end of chapter Draw It questions. The all new art program is contemporary without compromising Tortora Funke Cases hallmark reputation for precision and clarity. Content revisions include substantially revised immunity chapters and an increased emphasis on antimicrobial resistance, bioterrorism, and biofilms.
