"Making Connections" Microbiology: A Systems Approachis a non-majors/allied health microbiology textbook that has become known for its unique organization, engaging writing style, and instructional art program. Cowan's "building blocks" approach establishes the big picture first and then gradually layers concepts onto this foundation. This logical structure helps students acquire knowledge while connecting important concepts. The emphasis of the lab manual is on the basic principles of diagnostic microbiology for students preparing to enter an allied health field. Students are led through a series of exercises that allow them to learn basic microbiology techniques and to practice safety in the laboratory and hospital environment. It remains oriented primarily toward meeting the interests and needs of those who will be directly involved in patient care and who wish to learn how microbiological principles should be applied in the practice of their professions.
