The book reads well and is easy to understand!!!!!!
Wayne
One glaring flaw in the book is that it depicts all the amino acids as achiral, rather than denoting the chirality of each.
Tiffany
Highly recommend this book if you are a MCD major, not for Biochem majors.

This was a required text for my Biochem and related courses in Pharmacy school. This is an excellent text... sufficiently easy to read and concise. Chapters are short (most are 10-12 pages) so subject material is broken down well. Certainly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This book was required for a class. It is easy to read and understand, however it truly is a short course. It is about half the size of other biochemistry books I have seen, so if you are looking for an in-depth text, this is not for you. Also, this book skips out on a lot of background information and the end of chapter problems are much more in-depth than the text, requiring outside sources to answer.

This is a perfect book for science majors that are not majoring in Biochemistry or Chemistry. It really breaks down the mechanisms and highlights the basics. Great book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Each chapter has about 10-15 questions only. The explanations in the back are worthless and you end up wasting so much time flipping through the chapter only to find out that the question being asked can't be solved within the scope of the book, let alone the chapter.

Some questions ask you about data which require a table of pHs. The book introduces to you scrap info and you then end up having to look online for pHs and pKas of several amino acids. The appendix in the back is absolute crap. The author should have focused less on adding pointless words and instead make graphs and organize everything. This book seems rushed and chaotic. The only thing I like about it is that the information is presented in a simple manner so you end up learning the concepts, but when it comes to the problems, you're literally screwed because of the lack of information given.

I can't stress enough how annoying the questions and solutions are in this book. I wish it came with a separate solutions manual. The chapters don't even have a solution box like most other textbooks where they go step by step in solving a problem.

Overall the book is understandable but it is not helpful in solving biochemistry questions... which is what biochemistry exams ask... so all in all I would say this was a waste of money.

Fairly good book for a biochem book. Alot of pictures and helpful anecdotes to help the reader understand some of the concepts. There are some things that are not emphasized well so it may be worth getting the latest edition. But over all a fairly good book for learning the basics of biochemistry. One glaring flaw in the book is that it depicts all the amino acids as achiral, rather than denoting the chirality of each. That was frustrating and meant i had to rely on other sources, but when it comes to those all you have too know is that the nitrogen group is to the left. COO- is at the top, H to the right and the R group on the bottom ( at least that is how I was taught). Of course...there is no substitute for an awesome teacher. =)
