5.0 von 5 Sternen Highly recommended text on genetics
Concepts of Genetics is an outstanding book. It is the assigned text for a course in genetics that I am taking which is taught through the UC Berkeley Extension program. Course reading assignments cover all but two chapters and so far we have covered about 2/3 of them.
I really like the authors' approach to the subject. They do an excellent job of describing...

1.0 von 5 Sternen A good book? Not a good textbook -- that's for sure!
This is my first one-star review that I've given any book (even that, only because they did not have a zero-star option). I had this book for my genetics class last semester (spring '99). I found the book to be written in a research paper style rather than in a textbook language.
Those of you in the field would say that's exactly the style a genetics book should...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Concepts of Genetics (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Concepts of Genetics is an outstanding book. It is the assigned text for a course in genetics that I am taking which is taught through the UC Berkeley Extension program. Course reading assignments cover all but two chapters and so far we have covered about 2/3 of them.
I really like the authors' approach to the subject. They do an excellent job of describing complex material in a way that makes it clear and understandable. The many diagrams, drawings and tables are an integral part of the coverage and help significantly to clarify the written explanations. The authors also have a good sense for the history of genetics, describing clearly many key experiments that have been done to establish the key principles.
The material has obviously been updated with most recent available results. The authors frequently point out areas of most intense current research. The text is definitely not light reading but if you want to learn the material, you will find it very well presented here.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Concepts of Genetics (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is my first one-star review that I've given any book (even that, only because they did not have a zero-star option). I had this book for my genetics class last semester (spring '99). I found the book to be written in a research paper style rather than in a textbook language.
Those of you in the field would say that's exactly the style a genetics book should have. I disagree. It is not about making an already diffucult subject even more difficult and inaccessable. It is about presenting the subject so that the student can learn as much as possible out of it. It is about making the student want to stick to the book. The book definitely failed to accomplish this both in my case and for most of my classmates.
Some of you might think my reason for hating this book is that I failed the class: I actually ranked #1 at the end of the course (My name is E. Pone, a senior bio student at Palm Beach Atlantic College, W. P. Beach, Florida). I am a good student (4.0 GPA) and as far as textbooks are concerned, I am one of those people that like the smell of a new textbook, and can't wait till a new book or edition comes out (by the way, I hope a new edition of this one never comes out).
I read the whole book, did a lot of problems (and as I said did quite well on the class) but strangely found myself dozzing off wile trying to go through this book.
Another factor why I so disliked the book was the contrast of the book to the lecturing style of my proffessor, Dr. Goss: an outstanding fellow, and clear as crystal.
Bottom line: I'd rather read a scientifically incorrect textbook written from someone with an M.E., than a research paper type of book from some big-ego Ph.D. So, if any of you out there is like me, do yourselves a favor and buy another book. You won't need a lot of depth at this point, you don't need details on every line -- you'll get that in grad school or on the job. All you need is a good introduction to the concepts (for the fifth time, this book fails to do precisely that).
