Customer Reviews

An excellent study buddy for your undergrad or medical school biochem class.
Kate
After receiving the book, I compared it page by page with the 4th edition, and there was NOTHING new in it from a content standpoint.

If you're a visual learner, this book contains quality diagrams that illustrate the material very well.

GOOD NEWS! Since this "new" 5th edition is exactly the same as the eight month older last edition, the 4th edition is now an incredible bargain! Get a copy before they are sold out. The 4th edition may be the BEST biochemistry class and USMLE review book ever. After you use it in your medical school biochemistry class, just review the highlighted sections and the charts, etc. for the Step 1 and you'll ACE the biochemistry part of the exam. Also, this book helps integrate biochemistry with other subjects, such as physio, pharm, cell-bio, etc., helping to make multi-disciplinary concepts and mechanisms more clear.

Yes, everyone knows that Lippincott Illustrated Reviews (LIR) Biochemistry 4th edition deserves 5 stars. However, LIR Biochemistry 4th edition, with a new cover on it that says 5th edition, deserves only "1" star (and I wish I had the option of giving it "0" stars).

I'm sure most of you are familiar with amazon's feature, "Click to Look Inside", which is listed right above the picture of the book. When I clicked on this feature for this 5th edition, I was surprised to find that the table of contents was EXACTLY the same as the 4th edition. I'm not talking only about the content or titles of the chapters, which you'd expect to be the same, I mean both editions showed the same number of pages in each chapter, the same number of pages in the index, and the same number of total pages for the entire book, and every sample page was exactly the same in both editions. I concluded that this must be a mistake by amazon, since occasionally they'll show the pictures and text from the previous edition (although they will usually, but not always, state that the sample pages shown are from a previous edition). So, I went ahead and placed my order.

I bought this book after it was highly recommended to me for my medical school course (Molecular and Cellular Basis of Medicine). It has certainly been an invaluable resource and gives you just what you need to know. This is not a reference book, or even a textbook. It's a highly condensed, high-yield book for learning what's relevant and important. If you're a visual learner, this book contains quality diagrams that illustrate the material very well. I highly recommend this book!

An excellent study buddy for your undergrad or medical school biochem class. The figures and succinct explanations are unrivaled, according to my more experienced friends, who used it for USMLE prep. If you are new to biochem, you'd also benefit from the excellent outlines and topic summaries in DePra & McKee's Biochemistry Study Guide Biochemistry: The Molecular Basis of Life Student Study Guide / Solutions Manual. You of course won't need the solutions sections included, but the boiled down-to-basics flow charts, equations, and mneumonics, and topic organization are a nice resource when your head is spinning or you are having trouble memorizing things.

Buy this book. Do not waste time reading a more dense version of the same material. This review is a fantastic resource to gain a solid foundational understanding of topics in biochemistry. The diagrams and chapter summaries are very high yield.

I wish that I had purchased this book sooner.

I used this book to supplement my General Biochemistry text, Voet, during my post-baccalaureate year (the course is structured identically to an undergraduate general biochem course). General Biochem books are very dense and it's easy to get bogged down in that detail. This book was amazing in that it highlighted all of the important concepts from the text and lectures. It was as if someone took a highlighter, went through the main text, and said "know this, this, this...here it is in English." That was a very casual description, the course is difficult, and this book explained concepts more effectively than the main text did. I used it in addition, though, so don't completely substitute one for the other. It hits the main points of biochem in just the right amount of detail, In addition, having used this course in undergrad/post-bacc, you will have had a pass through it and will be familiar with it before going into your grad/med-school courses, so you'll already be familiar with the material. You'll recognize the information that you don't need to know and can easily skip it. Get this book, your grade will love you for it. One last detail, the examples used in the book are usually the same ones that professors like to use in class, ex. What can you use to treat a patient who comes in with methanol poisoning? Why? (section on enzyme inhibition).

Great book for med school...flow charts at the end of the chapter help organize info...illustrations sometimes make the text unnecessary

This book is an excellent supplement to the lecture notes provided in class.
It provides concise summaries and often simplifies topics that left me otherwise confused.

I was very excited to find this textbook in kindle format. My excitement deflated after purchasing the book and discovering that virtually every illustration in the book is either entirely illegible, or very difficult to read. I would otherwise rate it five stars for the accessibility, searchability, notability, etc. provided by having an e-form of the text book. I feel like I only recieved a percentage of what I paid for in this product. Ironic that a selling point is "illustrated reveiws series" If only there was a way to update the image quality...
