    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for a great beginner/medschool prep genetics book. I did not take genetics as an undergrad and feel I should, at least glaze over a book or 2 on the subject before I start medschool in August.

    Any recommendations on a clear, concise genetics text/review book?

    Thanks Guys

I bought the solution guide and it helped me greatly, although there were several mistakes in it. But the book I'm referring to is a big textbook--not very concise.

    Maybe go to a bookstore and see what they have--like Genetics for dummies? Or maybe a board review book that focuses on genteics? I dunno

    So most people don't take genteics? In my school, the core Bio classes for the major and for premeds are Cell Bio and Genetics---does that mean I took upper-lever Bio classes and I don't have to worry that much, or do most people take these classes to fulfill the premed req.s?

    I think Genetics is upper-bio. At least for those who are non-bio/pre-med majors. But it can vary greatly for each school. At my school Biochem and cell Bio were the intro bio courses pre-meds could take. Last year, Hopkins decided to add an Intro to Biology course. Of course, I was a senior then and couldn't take it. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the suggestions by the way!!!!!!
