    Genetics Review Books

    Advertisements



    Hello everyone

    What review books would you all recommend for Genetics? There is the Pretest Genetics book that was recommended by BIG. However, 'First Aid to the USMLE' gave that book bad reviews (several years back). Is it good to go by what this book recommends?

    Thanks.

    I don't think students have yet found a book that helps them any more than the handout and sample questions they give you as part of the course. Its a TOUGH class. That isn't to say that students don't use them, they just aren't very helpful.

    review books for genetics

    I bought a Genetics pretest early in the Semester because some friends in 2nd swore by it.
    Truth be known, I barely used it. Also, the Medical Genetics Textbook (Jorde) was also sworn on by some students. It helps for maby 20% of the course content.
    Suffice to say, just using the notes from class I am doing pretty good in the class.
    Some people like review books, others don't.
    If you want to dip into one without buying them, the Library has a great reserve collection of most - something I didn't find out till fairly recently.
    Good Luck - don't stress too much before getting here
