This book is worth buying if you want a concise, easy to follow introduction to molecular biology. The structured style of the book makes it a useful reference tool during revision time. Don't buy this book thinking that it is a cheap substitute for a more expensive textbook, you will be disappointed as there is not enough detail. However, if you buy it as a first step into the world of molecular biology you cannot go far wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, well organised and concise 16 May 2001
By A Customer
As an undergraduate studying a general science degree I have found this book really useful. It succeeds in providing the essential material clearly, without any unnecessary detail. It is a handy book to have to read an overview of a wide variety of molecular biology themes so is therefore a useful revision aid.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a clear and concise reference book. 8 Sep 2000
By A Customer
The book is incredibly easy to understand. The layout allows the reader to quickly access relevant sections. The chapter summary is also very useful as a quick refresher. This book is a compact size and this enables the student to carry it around with no difficulty. I as a genetics student found this the easiest textbook to follow.

The main objective of this book is to present a concise overview of the rapidly growing field of molecular biology to undergraduate students who do not want to get lost in too many details during revision. It covers a wide range of topics including the basics such as properties of nucleic acids and gene expression as well as more recent topics such as gene cloning. In the second edition two chapters about viruses and the genetics of cancer have been added. According to the purpose of the book the authors tried to concentrate only on the hard facts which, however, are presented in a more or less monotonous way. As a consequence reading the book and learning from it can very easily get boring and the reader may get lost in the densely written material. This book can still serve as a good supplement and might provide orientation during revision since it contains all the essential material. However, I think it cannot replace your own course notes.
