    E-Tutor 
    The E-Tutor provides guidance for answering all of the questions found at the end of each chapter of the book. The E-Tutor not only provides the right answer, but also explains in detail exactly why a particular answer is correct. The E-Tutor covers all questions in the book: the “Self Evaluation and Chapter Confidence” questions, the “Depth of Understanding” questions, and the “Clinical Corner” questions.

    MicroMovies
    A number of short movies (animations and videos) were created that will help students understand the concepts presented in the book. The movies are referenced in the textbook with an icon that indicates when a corresponding movie is available on the website.  The transcripts of the voice-over narration for each movie are also available on the website in the “Movie Scripts” PDF.

    Bug Parade
    The Bug Parade is an enhanced version of the Pathogen List found at the end of the book.  If you click on the name of the bug, you will hear the correct pronunciation.  This can be very useful since many of the Latin names are difficult to pronounce.

    Interactive Flashcards and a Searchable Glossary are available on the student resource site, and will help students master unfamiliar terms.

    Student Lecture Notes
    These topical outlines are designed to help students follow a lecture on a particular chapter.   Students may want to print these out, bring them to class, and annotate them during the lecture.
