Multiple choice questions (MCQs) test a candidates ability to apply his or her knowledge acquired during the regular course of study. Framing a question paper based on MCQs is time consuming but evaluating the answers is easy.subjectiveness of the examiner associated with evaluation of essay type of answers is inherent in the evaluation process & depends upon several variables such as hand writing, methods of presentation etc. These variables do not exist during evaluation of answers based on MCQs.
I am of the opinion that for the examination system at the undergraduate level, the entire testing of theoretical knowledge should be MCQ based since the evaluation can be computerized & human bias can be largely eliminated.
In this book, the multiple choice questions have been prepared with great care such that the questions framed are precise & clear enabling the reader to make correct choices. A wide coverage of topics is given.
I strongly recommend this book for all related to Microbiology & College Libraries.

The book is primarily meant for students appearing for PG competitive examinations. In USMLE, GATE, AFMC, AIIMS & other Medical, Paramedical entrance examinations for admissions to PG Programme, Microbiology is one of the important component of the syllabus.
The main objective of this book is to help students to review their knowledge of Microbiology acquired through standard textbooks. A sound knowledge of Microbiology is essential for students of Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry &
Nursing for understanding the subject with logical reasoning. This book is specially designed to complement any
standard microbiology textbook and to provide the students with a feedback on their progress & an opportunity to improve. Thus the book can serve as a self assessment guide.
With the explosion of knowledge in medical sciences, examinations in all faculties (Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry
& Nursing) is completely becoming MCQ oriented because this system of assessment is more accurate, reliable &
quicker. A welcome trend in this direction is already discernible
Both the teachers & students of microbiology will find this book useful. A quick persuation of the questions will
provide evidence that the book intends to stimulate reasoning
