The book really does get down to basics and has a decent index as well.

I am really happy to get this book brand new for way less than what my school was charging me.

It's beautifully written, very easily understood, and straight to the point.

I was educated many years ago, way before they elaborated the human genome. I felt I needed to learn the language of genetics in order to understand current medical literature, so I purchased various books in this field. Unfortunately, all were above my head until I purchased this one. I have just begun to read the book, but my initial impression is that I will finally understand the subject. The book really does get down to basics and has a decent index as well. Highly recommended.

The title of this product clearly says that it comes with eText access card. It is a lie. It does not come with it and Amazon will not do anything to get it for you. You are better off just buying the eText only online.

Also, the customer service rep that told me he couldn't do anything offered to give me a $15 amazon credit for my trouble but I never got it. :(

The title would suggest for this product that it would contain a copy of the MasteringGenetics access card; however, my copy of the product lacked the access card. This made the initially worthwhile rental cost as much as buying the book new.

The book itself is an invaluable resource for any genetics student. It highlights and elaborates difficult but necessary genetic topics. When MasteringGenetics is paired with the text, it further reinforces topics discussed by the text and provides an enjoyable studying experience.

Interesting book! My only complaint is that they went into a lot of detail about certain things, such as the experiments that the ideas were derived from. This could be good or bad, depending on your perspective. It was interesting, but when I'm also taking organic chemistry and biology, it's a lot of "filler" information that takes away from the main ideas. If I wasn't so crammed for time it would be great. Pretty good book, although I don't have anything to compare it to. Just my opinion.

This book has nice illustrations and easy to read tables. I wish that the answer key actually had full answers and I wasn't required to buy another book to get the answers for the rest of the questions.

Format: Loose Leaf Verified Purchase
Although we consistently get pretty good deals on Amazon, after buying books for 8 years for 2 students, I'm accustomed to the high price of textbooks.
But I have to say that I was very surprised upon opening the box when this "book" arrived, to find nothing but a giant stack of paper. Clearly I either missed or didn't understand the print on the description that said 'loose leaf' book.

So, although i think the concept is really interesting, in that my daughter can simply carry the part of the book she needs, considerably lightening her backpack; the price of this item seems pretty high, considering that the cost of printing this format has got to be considerably less than a bound book.
