Great book to use for medical biochemistry classes at medical school.

It's written in a way that makes it understandable and the diagrams are very helpful for a visual learner like me.

This book goes beyond biochemistry by relating all concepts to how they are used clinically. It makes some of the toughest concepts easier to understand. It also makes you think about how it is related to medical practice. It keeps the student interested in what they are reading instead of boring them to sleep.

This book was good for me to learn biochem. I fell asleep almost instantaneously with other books, but i could read this one, which i guess is a good thing. Has 5ish good questions at the end of each chapter to review what you learned.

Biochem is not the easiest subject in the world but it can be more understandable if you have a good book that can simplify complex principles and this book does that. Teaching biochemistry using the clinical approach I believe allows you to apply the principles to everyday life. The book provides vignettes at the beginning of each chapter with colorful patient in the "Waiting Room" with names like "Otto Shape" and "Ann O 'Rexia" with symptoms that will correspond with the teachings of that chapter. They have color coded icons to indicate female, male and infant/young child patients. The icons appear in the margin, identifying information related to the materials in the chapter. They have clinical notes that are typically related to the patients that explain signs or symptoms. There are also method notes that elaborate on how biochemistry is performed and interpreted in lab tests. All of these little side notes allow for a greater understanding of the materials as well as enhances your critical thinking skills. This books will definitely help you get through biochemistry.

Format: Paperback
Medical students need to be able to take concepts and facts from biochemistry and relate them to a clinical problem or technique. This is a very difficult task for a student when relying on a textbook that is quite theoretical and conceptual with very few clinical examples. Mark's Basic Medical Biochemistry is excellent at providing clinical examples, problems and understanding of biochemical techniques relevant to medical students and clinicians. This book is particularly helpful to those who are entering medical school without a course in biochemistry from college. It's one of the best basic biochemistry books on the market in my opinion.

As a biology major in undergrad, I'd taken biochem before and used a different book. As a medical student I wasn't sure if I should buy another biochem book but opted to get this on the recommendation of my professor. I'm so glad I bought this. The book lays topics out very clearly and has fantastic diagrams and pictures for clear understanding. I'd definitely recommend this book to any level student looking for a clear and helpful biochemistry book.

Format: Paperback
This book is a MUST for any medical student. It is extremely helpful in explaining why each step of a cycle is important, what would happen if it's missing, and so forth- basically, clinical correlations. I tried Harper's which was good but not as clinically detailed and Lehninger was just a disaster as far as being extremely detailed and not medically related.
Mark's Basic Medical Biochemistry is the antidote to those looking for a basic yet lasting understanding of the importance of biochemistry in medicine.

This book is great. Very easy to read, understand, and has many many helpful drawings. It's one of those books that I bought and have marked up to death, knowing that I will keep it for the rest of my career. You'll love this book! The way it displays information is very easy to follow, and it also has clinical vignettes, which if you have time to read are really useful.
