After reading a super saturated chapter - I always go to this to recheck myself. The study guide provides a list of major concept that you should know or should have got out of your reading.

WARNING:
Be wary of the solutions manual part. When the book calculates things it likes to round up constants. For example, instead of using 8.315 as a constant, they'll simply use 8. This skews the answers.

For my class the text alone is not sufficient for understanding the course since often my professor expects us to understand foreign ideas very confidently and to be able to apply them quickly. I am also expected to know a lot of the biology that I was never taught and this helps me learn the material without having to look up many of the biology concepts. Saying that, I definitely struggled until I opened up the solutions manual and started doing the study guide in the front of the solutions manual and then the problems from the text and checking my work in the back of the solutions manual. I haven't finished the course yet, just started it actually, but I can tell already that I am learning way more and understanding the concepts much, much better than I was before. I definitely recommend this for anyone who is struggling in this class or even if you need some extra practice, it's worth the [...] bucks if you want to learn the material!

I am so relieved that I spent the extra money to purchase this solutions manual. First of all, it has all the answers to the HW problems, which is obviously quite useful (and do a good job of explaining them it does). But even more than that, many of the questions in the actual study guide portion of the manual ask you conceptual questions that I would never have thought of asking myself. When you are trying to create a solid foundation in the understanding of a subject, it is the things like this that really help you solidify your knowledge.

The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that, not very often, it skimps in the explanation of one of the answers. I'm a very thorough study-er and like to know that I understand the subtle nuances of an concept, so this frustrates me.

I love this book. It's a great solutions manual, the only problem is the author/editor missed sig fig errors. Considering how much this book stresses sig figs, I was a little surprised. Often the book will ask for answer in 3 sig figs and report the answer in 2 sig figs instead of 3 or the reverse. For example lets say HOAc, Ka = 1.74x10^-5, this Ka value has 3 sig figs. Now suppose the answer they wanted was the pKa, the book would report the answer as 4.76, which is wrong b/c the 4 is a power of 10 and not significant, therefore there are only TWO sig figs in that answer. The correct answer would be 4.759 or 4.760.

This is my only complaint. Still giving the book 5 stars as this is an annoying issue, but a relatively minor one.

I was having difficulty with Biochemistry-not failing it by any means, but needed a little extra assistance to get my A. This book is extremely helpful and I would suggest anyone taking this course with the complimentary text book to purchase this guide!

This study guide provides good practice questions and answers to supplement your learning from lectures and the main text. Bear in mind that this a supplement, and the majority of your learning in Biochemistry should be derived from your lecturer's presentation notes/slides. (I received an "A" in Biochem II and never used this guide; I just recorded my professor's lectures and memorized all his slides.) Biochemistry consists of mountains of detailed information, and it's easy to get overwhelmed by adding this book into your main Biochem studies. But for a practice question guide to complement your lecturer's notes, this is a very good book.

This study guide is a critical element for the self study my 2 study partners have set out on. The crossword puzzles are just plain fun. The extended solutions to the problems at the end of the text are important to understanding how to apply the concepts from the text.
