Bacteria Microbiology Book for USMLE Step 1

I've been studying with the Kaplan notes (2010) and really enjoyed the Immunology section but now I just started with Microbiology and I'm kind of frustrated.... I mean, I LOVE microbiology but this book, chapter 2 is just like memorize, memorize, memorize like 100 pages of bugs....
Does anybody else feel like that?
Which other book do you recommend?
I'm thinking about getting Clinical Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple.

Yes, I did. But Kaplan isn't in there, so I wanted to see if I could get some feedback from other people.
