generally how many do you have to read to understand the degree well?

if you have time, how many biology related books do you read for further study?

I'm asking because I have a serious problem with extremes, I either want to know all of it or nothing (this can't work with bio as you know) so I'm trying to calculate how many books I'd need to read to have a degree level proficiency in each sub sector of biology as I don't want to be limited to biotech due to my degree choice. I plan to apply this after and/or during my BSc. I want to understand biotech, genetics, microbiology, biomed, biochem, neuroscience and others to all the same degree, so how many books will that take

I don't think I've ever read any books from start to finish. You pick up bits and pieces from various different texts based on how they explain things in order to understand the basic concepts and supplement what you hear about in lectures. The main thing is to apply what you know to solve problems and do lab work.
