Lubert Stryers Biochemie hat unzahligen Studenten nicht nur in unubertroffener Klarheit die Grundlagen dieses Faches und den prufungsrelevanten Stoff vermittelt, sondern ihnen auch die Augen fur die molekulare Logik des Lebendigen und die "Schonheit" dieser Disziplin geoffnet. Die neue Auflage beschreitet diesen Weg unbeirrt weiter. Dem Autor ist es erneut gelungen, die en ...more

Not as much fun as Lehninger's. I used it primarily for the review questions rather than read it from cover to cover.

It's pretty easy to understand, but sometimes it glosses over topics that it shouldn't.

Still more than years after graduation a book that I use.
Well written, logical and informatie

This review is of the third edition. Considering that it was published more than 20 years ago and we have seen revolutionary changes in biotechnology in those two decades, this review may not be applicable to later editions, and it is difficult to judge this book by contemporary standards.

Biotechnology has advanced rapidly, but the underlying biochemistry has not changed, of course, and Stryer is an excellent text to learn it from. I am not a biochemist, and this is the book that convinced me I

ok, I have to admit that chemistry isn't really my favorite course but this book sucked big time! The authors tried to make a story out of facts and it just didn't work well. I've read other books about biochemistry, so I know what I'm talking about when I say this book was complicated, boring and confusing. The information which should be together is dispersed. The sentences instead of being short and consistent are more like when a person uses big words hoping to sound smart. Beating around th ...more
The order of the book is very convenient to learn first the basic concepts then to apply these concepts to understand more confusing topics.I've been taking biochem. courses for two semesters and i've learned general mechanisms and regulation of the basic metabolic pathways very well from this book.However,it lacks deep knowledge about genetic effects caused to alter the mechanisms and enzyme regulations,Some explanations are just based on the chemistry of the molecules,metabolites etc but not b ...more

There is no easy way to teach biochemistry, the subject is simply vast and atrociously detailed. However, textbooks can be a great asset to try to provide a big-picture view of the almost too-detailed molecular understanding of biochemistry. In this aspect, this book fulfilled its job. Since I did not use the exercises found at the end of the chapters, I cannot comment on their quality. However, as a reference material I found the book to be more than adequate. I would definitely recommend it to ...more

This book is a must for any students following an undergraduate course which includes study units in biochemistry. It presents the various biochemical concepts and processes very clearly, making them much easier to understand by the reader. Convenient summaries at the back of each chapter make it easier to revise a chapter quickly while still highlighting all of the important points in that particular chapter. A very helpful book which will definitely be a great aid to me during my university ye ...more

This book helped me a lot through my course in Biochemistry. There was only one issue with this book! It was too heavy to carry around! LOL

Otherwise, it was very well organised and quite well-written with all the pictures and illustrations to help with the understanding of some basic concepts in biochemistry. :)

I was SERIOUSLY disappointed in this book. I had heard great things about it, but it was not helpful to someone just learning biochemistry for the first time and the pictures were neither appealing, helpful, cohesive, concise, or appropriate.

Everything about is all right but the part of genetic it needs a lot more data. The only question it leaves me is, why you eliminated some chapter or shorter them?
More summer reading. I could only find the third edition in the library unfortunately, but it will do while my other books come.
Simeon Lazarus Hubbard
One of the most dependable Biochemistry books out there. Only rivalled by Voet.

I'm done with biochem for this semester. This book is getting cleared out until the next, probably.

Not a bad study guide. Currently working through it at my own pace, find that it compliments the text well and is helping me read it more critically.
