Campbell et al Biology. Chapters 10-20 or so. Or get a review book like the Kaplan Comp Review book, but reading the Campbell book would be better. Don't read any advanced genetics textbook or such.

well on the MCAT there wont be more than like 5 actual genetics questions...there will be more "molecular biology" questions.

Genetics is Mendelian genetics such as crosses etc.

Molecular bio will be more DNA and RNA related material.

that's not what i am hearing from others here! some people are saying there will be twenty five percent genetics on the real mcat. it may also vary according to the form though.
thanks for your input.
