3.0 out of 5 stars Good but leaves out a lot. March 4 2011
By C. Liu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a concise version of the full "Cellular and Molecular Immunology" by the same author. I read this book cover to cover as a MS-1. Now a MS-2 preparing for step1, I feel that, while the pictures are good and you can go through it very quickly (just over 200 pages),the book leaves out a lot of important information that are essential in understanding the mechanisms of immune responses and their application to specific diseases. After I finish a chapter, I often feel I just get fed hard, general facts without understanding the "WHY".

In comparison, the full book this book is based on, the "Cellular and Molecular Immunology," though much bigger (~600 pages), it offers much clearer explanation of how and why an immune response work a certain way. In the end I got a lot more out of the bigger book than this one. If I had a second chance, I'd spend more time and about 10 bucks more and just get the bigger book the first time around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Immunology Made Easy Dec 20 2010
By pknucklebookrs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent for getting the "big picture" when it comes to learning immunology. It has great illustrations with concise explanations to boot. I would recommend this to anyone learning immunology for the first time and as a supplemental text for anyone in the medical sciences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Read Jan. 30 2011
By MedStudent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a first year medical student and this was the required text for class. I also bought Levinson's Review of Micro, which many students use for the Immunology section (and question bank). I thought the Abbas was much easier to read, and presented things in a very logical fashion. The chapters on T cell and B cell response are split up according to recognition and effector response, which I thought was a little unnecessary. They also repeat material each chapter, so you could technically read it out of order and still get the concepts. I like this, because it exposed me to certain key ideas over and over again, making them easier to remember. I prefer this text over Levinson, which I tried to read a few days before our exam, but only lead to confusion. This text has a lot of pictures, which makes chapters a lot shorter in terms of wording, and I also like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read Dec 7 2010
By Stephen B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is only 12 chapters with the first one being an absolutely confusing overview of the entire book. What I've come to find about the book is that you can skip all the words and read the pictures if you really wanted. There are pictures on almost every page and it is almost as if the text supplements the pictures. Overall pretty easy to understand and gives a good basic overview of immunology.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not crystal clear and passive voice Feb. 5 2013
By livelearnlove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book tries to simplify concepts by being unusually repetitive instead of clearly stating and restating major concepts. Also, too much use of the passive voice made reading it immensely boring. However, what the book sets out to accomplish is very great - that is to present an area of science in a very clear and simplistic manner that underlines the central concepts and terminology.
