Thumbs Up Flowcharts and Flashcards

If you want a quick method of study you can go over some flowcharts (like the ones at the end of Kaplan Lecture Notes) and flashcards. Those are the fasted methods of study without going into too much detail.

If you want a little more detail go with Clinical Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple as suggested above.
