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
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
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
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
