Great Review! (Textbook Summary)
What made the experience of listening to VangoNotes for Microbiology the most enjoyable?
*THERE ARE NO ADVERTISEMENTS IN THIS AUDIO DOWNLOAD!*
There are 28 separate chapters, all about 25 minutes long. They summarize the key points you should have learned in lecturing or by reading the full textbook. After the "Key Points" summary they quiz you to make sure you are getting it. It's a little hard to follow the summary when you're our and about, but don't worry. Just wait until you hit the review questions and if you don't know the answers, go study what you need to learn.
What other book might you compare VangoNotes for Microbiology to and why?
Cliff Notes or Spark Notes.
Which character – as performed by Amy LeBlanc and Mark Greene – was your favorite?
Amy does summary, then Mark quizzes you.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It's great to listen to a chapter, get all the questions right, then Know that you Know what you should be learning in Micro.
Any additional comments?
There is a bad review that bags on Vango. It made me Very reluctant to but this. That review is complete crap. They give you exactly what they say, and they do it Commercial free!! I repeat, There are NO adds!

Good audiotextbook if you have some basic info
A) the person leaving the review about there constantly being adds is utterly wrong, the name of the company is given at the end and the start of chapters
B) this is a good audio textbook, but If you have no experience with microbiology I am not sure it will be helpful on its own, it seems to be a companion audio review for a physical textbook
C) would recommend basic high school understanding of chemistry, the book explains the chemistry but not particularly well, or in enough depth in my opinion, perhaps grab an old chemistry textbook and dig through the glossary while pausing the audiobook
