What members say
Great Review! (Textbook Summary)
What made the experience of listening to VangoNotes for Microbiology the most enjoyable?
*THERE ARE NO ADVERTISEMENTS IN THIS AUDIO DOWNLOAD!*
There are 28 separate chapters, all about 25 minutes long. They summarize the key points you should have learned in lecturing or by reading the full textbook. After the "Key Points" summary they quiz you to make sure you are getting it. It's a little hard to follow the summary when you're our and about, but don't worry. Just wait until you hit the review questions and if you don't know the answers, go study what you need to learn.
What other book might you compare VangoNotes for Microbiology to and why?
Cliff Notes or Spark Notes.
Which character – as performed by Amy LeBlanc and Mark Greene – was your favorite?
Amy does summary, then Mark quizzes you.

Any additional comments?
There is a bad review that bags on Vango. It made me Very reluctant to but this. That review is complete crap. They give you exactly what they say, and they do it Commercial free!! I repeat, There are NO adds!

Good audiotextbook if you have some basic info
A) the person leaving the review about there constantly being adds is utterly wrong, the name of the company is given at the end and the start of chapters
B) this is a good audio textbook, but If you have no experience with microbiology I am not sure it will be helpful on its own, it seems to be a companion audio review for a physical textbook
C) would recommend basic high school understanding of chemistry, the book explains the chemistry but not particularly well, or in enough depth in my opinion, perhaps grab an old chemistry textbook and dig through the glossary while pausing the audiobook

What disappointed you about VangoNotes for Microbiology?
Even though the book itself is great, but not the audio book. I hate VangoNotes because all they do is just Advertise not stop through out the audio. After every 2 seconds you hear
Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?
No Vangonotes for me!
How could the performance have been better?
Get rid of the non-stop advertising throughout the audio! It has very less material and some multiple choice sections. The rest of the 10 hours is Advertising...
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger! Sadness! and Disappointment!!!
Any additional comments?
Don't sell any Vangonotes ever again otherwise people will stop using audibles.
