Decent textbook. Major flaw is that it goes from too basic to too advanced in 0 seconds flat!

I read the first half (12 chapters) of the Sixth Edition. It could have been more clearly written. Overall, it contains the necessary information for a basic genetics course, and overall the organization and layout of the material are good. The pictures and diagrams are attractive and helpful. I think this book could work well for a student in a college classroom, with regular lectures and professorial explanation. I read this book as a homeschooling parent, with a Biology degree, having studied...
Optimal book as introduction to geneticsThe reason I choose this book, was its contents and now I see that I was not mistaken. Thus, book covers nearly every topic related to genetics-classical and molecular genetics, role of inheritance in regulation and behavior, cancer etc. In addition different parts of the book are connected and ordered really nicely.I do not have much to say about explanations, because they even hardly vary among courses(especially in advanced ones). However, illustrations...
Quite definition-heavy. Comprehensive, touching almost all topics around genes - almost, because describes any use of bioinformatics as "done by computer".
I think it's a very good introductory textbook. It offers a broad overview of all the basics one should know and does so in depth. I found it very easy to read and understand. I think it would be well-suited to complement a high-school level 'introduction to genetics' course.I only wish I could've got my hands on a more recent edition. Alas, I had to make do with the 2nd. The new editions come with study guides and extra problem solving assignments + access to online tutorials.
this textbook is so bad, they don't even put the chapter number in the heading of each page. i hate this book and this class.
Love the book! Worth the money although bought it from a senior.
Good and detailed explanation of topics :)
Changes too fast... can't sell it back...
