    yes absolutely, you must know stuff like Notochord, ectoderm, mesoderm, endoderm and what parts of the organism are derived from these tissues.

    yea i got odd ball questions ranging from cellular to embryo level changes.

    campbells text covers this section very well bc it starts at sperm/egg generation n goes through until birth.

    dont forget that any animal is fair game... better know those famous Xenopus experiments!

    I don't have either book (actually Cliffs should be in the mail). Can someone summarize the experiments?
