A must-have for anyone taking Biochem, regardless of level


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, 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).



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.

great for med school


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

Love It, Love It! Survived biochem with this, still recall figures!


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.

to the point


Excellent text for the visual learner. It's also straight to the point not very wordy. The book is organized amazingly to find what you need quickly.
