I would recommend this if you need a text for a biochemistry class.
Heather Evans
This study guide provides good practice questions and answers to supplement your learning from lectures and the main text.

This book sorta helps if you already understand the subject material pretty well.

For my class the text alone is not sufficient for understanding the course since often my professor expects us to understand foreign ideas very confidently and to be able to apply them quickly. I am also expected to know a lot of the biology that I was never taught and this helps me learn the material without having to look up many of the biology concepts. Saying that, I definitely struggled until I opened up the solutions manual and started doing the study guide in the front of the solutions manual and then the problems from the text and checking my work in the back of the solutions manual. I haven't finished the course yet, just started it actually, but I can tell already that I am learning way more and understanding the concepts much, much better than I was before. I definitely recommend this for anyone who is struggling in this class or even if you need some extra practice, it's worth the [...] bucks if you want to learn the material!

After reading a super saturated chapter - I always go to this to recheck myself. The study guide provides a list of major concept that you should know or should have got out of your reading.

WARNING:
Be wary of the solutions manual part. When the book calculates things it likes to round up constants. For example, instead of using 8.315 as a constant, they'll simply use 8. This skews the answers.

This study guide is a critical element for the self study my 2 study partners have set out on. The crossword puzzles are just plain fun. The extended solutions to the problems at the end of the text are important to understanding how to apply the concepts from the text.

I thought I was ordering the solutions manual for the text and when I recieved this book I found that the only solutions that it had was the problems that were part of the study guide. The text solutions manual was a whole seperate entity that I did not recieve so I was pretty disappointed with my purchase. Just a heads up to anyone looking to purchase the ACTUAL solutions manual for the text.

This is a great biochemistry text. In my course we are expected to use texts as supplements to the course, and I found this one really helped with my coursework. It was very good at clarifying what my professors went over in lecture. I would recommend this if you need a text for a biochemistry class.

I love this book. It's a great solutions manual, the only problem is the author/editor missed sig fig errors. Considering how much this book stresses sig figs, I was a little surprised. Often the book will ask for answer in 3 sig figs and report the answer in 2 sig figs instead of 3 or the reverse. For example lets say HOAc, Ka = 1.74x10^-5, this Ka value has 3 sig figs. Now suppose the answer they wanted was the pKa, the book would report the answer as 4.76, which is wrong b/c the 4 is a power of 10 and not significant, therefore there are only TWO sig figs in that answer. The correct answer would be 4.759 or 4.760.

This is my only complaint. Still giving the book 5 stars as this is an annoying issue, but a relatively minor one.
