Genetics How to prepare for Genetics??

Well, I find Genetics very difficult and I am really very bad at that

Anyway, it's not only me. I am sure there are many like me who feels the same way.

I still have more than 1mth for exam and want to give a bit more empasize on Genetics.

Well, I am right now studing it from Goljan Rapid Review and will do FA.

I need valuable advise from you guys to how to do a bit more better

Thank you.

I do not have specific book for genetics. I count on what is in Lippincott's biochemistry and BRS embryology. But I would suggest that if you are uncertain so you could do well (if you have enough time) that you buy a genetics book. That will give you little extra and you won't stress about it. That is my opinion.

Thanks for replying but I think I won't be able to buy and read a new book

Instead doing Genetic part from Goljan and I am feeling better after going through it.

I am currently revising Genetics. I feel your pain!
I find First Aid 2010 edition have a good overview (plus mnemonics for remembering things!). Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences explain basic genetics quite well, the best of both worlds - a lot of detail and a comprehensive narrative.
And of course Kaplan notes.

I hope this helps!

Thank you so much! I have a question though...when you say 210 hrs of video, do you mean all the kaplan 2010 videos or just genetics alone is this long? I can't download these rt this minute as I'm in a public place with slow connection or else I would have seen for myself! Thank you
