Instructor's Testing and Resource CD-ROM This cross-platform CD-ROM provides a wealth of resources for the instructor. Supplement features on this CD-ROM include a computerized test bank, utilizing Brownstone Diploma testing software, to quickly create customized exams. This user-friendly program allows you to search for questions by topic, format, or difficulty level; edit existing questions or add new ones; and scramble questions and answers keys for multiple versions of the same test. Word files of the test bank are included for instructors who prefer to work outside of the test-generator software.

Other assets on the Instructor's Testing and Resource CD-ROM are grouped within easy-to-use folders. These resources include the Instructor's Manual and the Laboratory Preparator's Manual.

Instructor's Manual Prepared by Michael Lema and Rick Corbett of Midlands Technical College, this valuable resource includes Learning Objectives keyed to the Student Study Guide, correlations to the multimedia resources available with the text, and answers to questions in the text.

Transparencies A set of 300 images from the textbook is provided for classroom projection.

Projection Slides Slide sets are available that show clinical examples of diseases or examples of microbial specimens. Laboratory Manual The fourth edition of Microbiology Experiments: A Health Science Perspective, by John Kleyn and Mary Bicknell, has been prepared to directly support the text (although it may also be used with other microbiology textbooks). The laboratory manual features health-oriented experiments and endeavors also to reflect the goals and safety regulation guidelines of the American Society for Microbiology. Engaging student projects introduce some more intriguing members of the microbial world and expand the breadth of the manual beyond health-related topics. Newer experiments introduce modern techniques in biotechnology such as use of restriction enzymes and use of a computer database to identify sequence information. Preparator's Manual for the Laboratory Manual This invaluable guide includes answers to exercises, tips for successful experiments, lists of microbial cultures with sources and storage information, formulae and sources for stains and reagents, directions and recipes for preparing culture media, and sources of supplies. The Preparator's Manual is available to instructors through the Online Learning Center.
