Net Price: $16.00

This CD-ROM contains tutorials, interactive problems and self-tests. For some topics a tutorial introduces the subject with animations and illustrations of basic genetic concepts required to solve the problems. Additional concepts are introduced through interactive problems, which take the student in a step-wise manner through a complex problem. Recognizing the errors students most frequently make and where they have conceptual difficulties, the authors have provided tailored feedback to predictable classes of wrong answers.
