Description

This package includes MasteringGenetics (TM).



For all introductory genetics courses



A forward-looking exploration of essential genetics topics

Known for its focus on conceptual understanding, problem solving, and practical applications, this bestseller strengthens problem-solving skills and explores the essential genetics topics that today's students need to understand. The Ninth Edition maintains the text's brief, less-detailed coverage of core concepts and has been extensively updated with relevant, cutting-edge coverage of emerging topics in genetics. The accompanying MasteringGenetics online homework and assessment system has been updated with over 100 practice problems and an expanded selection of assignable end-of-chapter problems.



This package includes MasteringGenetics (TM), an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Interactive, self-paced tutorials provide individualized coaching to help students stay on track. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts.



MasteringGenetics should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Please be sure you have the correct ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
