Chances are if you're buying this book, it's not for recreational reading, but for your biochemistry class. It's not as if you really have a choice.

That being said, it's a decent book. Some of the text was a little hard to follow, but I found that most often, there was a diagram that explained what I didn't get the first time reading through.

Definitely buy this from Amazon. It was twice as expensive in the college bookstore.

I had Leninghers, biochem by voet and voet (4th edition) and finally this book.
Leningher is good for introductory biochem, yet some of the facts are misleading. Voet and voet.. its TOO MUCH. A lot of useless details that makes the textbook hard to follow. If you are a good student that can pick the right material for your midterm, then good for you. It's really hard to know what is important or what not. This is definitely not a textbook for undergrads, but more for grad students or for reference.
Fundamentals of Biochemistry, student companion gives a nice easy summary of each topic that you will need to know for biochem. It's not enough, but at least you will get a good idea what the topics are and what you should be focusing on. I highly recommend for those who have little time to focus on biochem or those that have hard time reading voet and voet.

The book is fine, its a pair to the real book that you will need for class. This is the student companion edition to read before you buy!

This book is great for review- it eliminates all the unnecessary detail that makes the full chapters so long. It makes a great and lightweight companion to the full voet and voet textbook. I wouldn't depend on this book solely, as the lack of diagrams make the concepts a lot more difficult ( and none of the essential molecular structures are provided). It helped me get through my second semester biochemistry course. The questions at the end of each chapter were also great.
