This info is basicaly based on one invitational, so it may be wrong.

you should google it or go to images to find useful diagrams.

How do you guys study for microbe picture/microscope slide ID'ing?
It seems like the questions can range from really generic to really specific in the hierarchy of classification.

Yes, that is a very good site for basic intros to stuff.

Does anybody know of (a) good book(s) to study for this event (or microbiology in general) with? I really need one.

Well, there are a huge variety of Microbiology books available.

First of all, check this: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Microbiology+Textbooks

That brings up quite a few results.

Next, check Amazon. Usually there are quite a few books on there.

But what I really recommend doing (as this is what I did) is to go to a used book store and peruse the Science section. Often there are quite a few textbooks on Microbiology over there. Also, this is generally much faster.

Personally though, I recommend the book Foundations in Microbiology by Talaro. Although there is a lot of extraneous information not needed for the event, it provides a pretty good overview (just by reading the first seven to eight chapters) on the information needed.

I hope this helps! :D
