I purchased this textbook for a class, and it is a good introduction to health science. The beginning of each chapter states the objectives and a few questions to test your knowledge of the subject. The summaries at the end of each chapter touch on major points addressed. This edition continues to build upon the integration of mendelian and molecular principles, providing students with the links between early genetics understanding and the new molecular discoveries that have changed the way the field of genetics is viewed.
