NPLEX I Brief Microbiology Overview

Microbiology and immunology are hands-down my favourite subjects of those included in NPLEX I.  Unfortunately they are also some of the toughest areas on the exam so I am including as much as I can to help those about to write or rewrite the exam.  As far as bacteria and parasites, here are two quick summaries (bacteria and parasites) I used as a refresher before I walked into the exam.  Click the images to download the documents.  I used these in conjunction with the USMLE Step 1 and your other notes.  Feel free to scribble your own additions and let me know if you see anything that needs to be corrected or updated.

I am in the process of working on more fun stuff for micro, and also for immunology, so check back!  Happy studying :)
