Description

A supplement for any genetics textbook, this guide gives students thorough instruction and practice for solving genetics problems. Using callout comments, the author walks students through the process of breaking down word problems by dissecting each sentence. At each significant point in the statement of a problem, students learn to evaluate the given data, think about how it fits into the larger picture, and analyze relationships that lead to a potential solution.

 

Currently,How to Solve Genetics Problems can be packaged with Pearson genetics texts for a special value package price.
