It is packed with details and brilliant illustrations.

It is very convenient to have a digital version of this book, since the printed version is very thick and impossible to carry around.

I recommend this textbook for any Biochemistry undergraduate students, as well as Graduate students.

Format: Paperback
Voet & Voet Biochemistry (4th edition) is a 1300 pp tome packed with detailed information about biochemical reactions, metabolic processes, the structure and function of biomolecules and much more. The book contains plenty of beautiful illustrations about the 3D structures of proteins, DNA, and their complexes, each with its corresponding PDB (Protein Databank) id code. Furthermore, each chapter ends with a long list of references to specific studies published in scientific journals. What can you ask more?

Hardcover and the paper printed seems to be the same as the full price book. Don't quite know why some people are still selling it for $200...is it because of the DVD or CD that comes with it? Not sure...anyway for my classes the book itself is enough and it is the full book so why pay more?

Wow. This book is an excellent biochemical resource. It is a little dense, but if you have a sturdy background in physics, math, and chemistry, you'll find the material efficient and right to the point.

This is an excellent textbook. The writing is exceptionally clear, the organization is thorough and logical, and the illustrations are often beautiful and are accompanied by detailed captions. The authors make a consistent effort to describe the research which supports current thinking about biochemistry.

If there is any flaw in the book, it is that the level of detail is often overwhelming, to the point that you lose sight of the main point of a section. In spite of the book's length, the descriptions of research can sometimes be terse, requiring a lot of re-reading to connect the dots. The text is so long that the last three chapters are not included in the physical book and need to be accessed online.

I highly recommend this book, but I would advise getting a backup biochem textbook for those times when you get bogged down in detail. If it's your class text, hopefully your instructor will summarize or skip some of the lengthier sections.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you need to get caught up on modern biochemistry then this is the book to start before foraging through the modern journals. The only complaint as others have pointed out, is that the last 3 chapters are not included and have to be downloaded from the publisher's website, but that is no biggie . You probably won't reference those chapters too much anyway unless you are interested in a specific topic in them but they are shallow compared to the rest of the text.

Just start with this book if you are already familiar with biochemistry and need more information. This is a great reference text for a lab or anyone.

IF you are new to the whole topic and your teacher is not recommending this book then buy a simpler text like Lehninger's biochemistry which is a decent introduction. This book is way better but it is far more awful to read cover to cover and then be tested over. You really also need the study guide or problem book with this book if you have to use it for a class.

I wanted to get a head start on this subject and after doing a lot of research on biochem textbooks, I settled on this one. I am absolutely delighted with my purchase. It is packed with details and brilliant illustrations. I can't recommend this book enough, it will be a reference for years to come.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I never knew how lost I was in the weird and crazy world we live in until I purchased Biochemistry by Voet and Voet.
It really helped me get my life together again. I laughed, I cried, I even closed the book a few times in silent yet angered reflection at my contrasting viewpoints on such things as enzyme kinetics, protein purification, and gene expression.
Walking away from this magnificent cover-to-cover cliff-hanging awe-inspiring thriller of a text book I can honestly say I'm a better man now.

Good read.

This is a great book for molecular biologists. The kindle edition looks nice. It is very convenient to have a digital version of this book, since the printed version is very thick and impossible to carry around.
