Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"The content is well-written and it is appropriate for an undergraduate level course. I think that heredity is a challenging topic to cover in a single overview chapter, but HDEV does a good job."

— Catherine Jacuzzi

"The topics covered match what I have taught, or wanted to cover, in years past. Because of the pacing of the book, Rathus is able to introduce numerous topics in a way that is engaging and informative without being dry."

— Christine Floether
