Default Best Microbiology Book For USMLE Step 1

Post and Poll Options were last updated on August 25th, 2013.

In this poll we vote for the Best Microbiology review book specific for the USMLE Step 1 Exam.

You will notice that larger textbooks of microbiology are not listed here, we are voting for those books that are specifically useful in the step 1 exam prep. The books listed above are useful for Med school students during their med school years as well as graduates who are preparing for the step 1 exam. Books that have only questions with no review of microbiology are not listed. Similarly Flashcards are not listed. Books that are outdated (8 years or older) and that do not have updated editions also get removed from the poll, their votes are also deleted in the process.

If we have missed a Step 1 Microbiology Review book, please post about it in the mainstream Step 1 Forum and we'll add it to this poll.

You will also notice that we move away or delete replies to this thread. This is because we want the focus on the poll above rather than discussion and comments. You can always check our Microbiology Tag for discussions about microbiology prep for the step 1 exam.

Please do not vote if you haven't used any of the books above. Artificial inflation of votes by book authors publishers will be detected and removed. Votes that are older than 18 months are automatically deleted.

Book links are periodically updated to the latest editions and will take you to Amazon pages where you can purchase those books. Books that are not available in Amazon cannot be listed.

To find out about other Best Books for USMLE Review, please check our Best Books Page.

Note: Because Microbiology and Immunology are usually reviewed together in the same book, you will find that several of the books listed in the poll are also listed in the Best Immunology Book Poll but in general we want you to vote here for the microbiology portion only. Also, some of the books above merge some infectious disease which typically geared for Step 2 CK prep.

Happy voting!

It's not really a book, but SketchyMicro is a phenomenal resource for micro.
