Students will be able to easily navigate through the course and identify key sections which require review and practice, and where to find the related study tools.

Opening Vignettes: Two-page vignettes at the beginning of each course section engage students with the concepts to be covered by drawing a connection between the learning objectives of the section and hot issues in the field as well as applications and factoids of high interest.

Microbiology Roadmap: Found at the end of each course section are “roadmaps” that serve as study guides highlighting the key concepts students should be understanding and comprehending.
