I might have to take a graduate level course in developmental biology, of which I have never taken a course in before. The course website lists no recommended texts. Therefore, I assume we will be doing a more independent study, and I would want to have a book or source to better facilitate that study.

Any recommendation, free or not free, is welcome.

Gilbert's Developmental Biology is an excellent text. It is in the 11th edition, though the 6th edition is available free on NCBI bookshelf.

    $\begingroup$ @RoSiv Many free text books on NCBI are only accessible by searching. You can get into whole chapters/sections if you just search for the title. Of course, the actual book is much more user friendly; I hope you enjoy it. $\endgroup$

For a very quick and free introduction, you can have a look at Khan Academy > Developmental Biology.

Of course, before studying developmental biology, you will need basis in molecular biology and molecular genetics.
