Read Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry

Ayperson in a way that is both engaging and understandable The writing style is superb and the visual aids are numerous and of exceptionally high uality How many times while cramming for the next day's test at 300 am have you caught yourself reading material that isn't even covered on the exam just because it's interesting. This Biochemistry textbook is extremely well written The figures tables and boxes are uite informative and the problems at the ends of the chapters will challenge you a lot I really don t know why anyone in the sciences would not like this book First of all an incredible amount of data and research went into the making of this book so there is A LOT to learn Second of all this is a Biochemistry textbook which means that the material will seem mind numbing and dry But since when does interesting entail fun No one can be automatically excited by the subject matter it reuires a conscious effort to GET excited once you get past the mind numbing part exercise your brainThe only reason I can think of which would turn people away from this book is having a short attention span The whole point of learning is not to be entertained but to be educated and this book is the perfect tool for educating There aren t any goofy cartoon characters or child like drawings in this book which may seem why many are turned off by it But the subject matter is extremely interesting and if you are willing to learn about the amazing chemical processes within cells then buy this book Learning Glycolysis and the Citric Acid Cycle for the first time will NOT be a fun task take my word for it it s extremely dull and no amount of cartoons can make metabolic processes fun But such processes should be appreciated regardless of the level of difficulty in learning them

 Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry

Ts alone should tell you that I must have found this book pretty remarkable This text was reuired for all three of the biochemistry classes I took as an undergraduate student and it never let me down It contains a positively HUGE amount of information which Nelson and Cox have somehow managed to digest and present for the l. There s a lot to like about this textbook The level of detail is not overwhelming it s not too long and the explanations are mostly clear It has a good glossary and includes short answers to all the problems at the ends of the chapters It provides some physiology in a chapter on mammalian metabolismThe problems with this book are in organization There is no subsection numbering as if all subsections are of eual importance But they aren t there is almost always a hierarchy of relationships which these authors ignore and this makes the chapters much harder to understand Topics are sometimes presented out of order for example the authors present an overall table of transporter classifications but describe the various transporters in a confusingly random order Subsections and paragraphs are sometimes poorly organized so that instead of A leads to B leads to C leads to D leads to conclusion you find A C conclusion B D The Boxes which provide supplementary material are especially poor so much so that I stopped reading them after the first few chapters This text really needs extensive editing I used the 4th edition so maybe later editions are betterIn spite of the problems I like this textbook and refer to it often But if it s the textbook for your class or for self study you should get another textbook as a backup or prepare to spend some time online to understand the less well explained sections

Before I say anything about this book I offer for your consideration the fact that I am not a student of biochemistry; I am a physics graduate student My desire to learn about biochemistry had nothing to do with receiving any sort of degree Then consider the fact that this is the onlycom review I have ever written These fac. What I like the most about this book is that it contains almost all the information that you need to understand biochemistry information that is not traditionally covered in biochemistry books but that is needed as background to a complete understanding of the subject For instance the first chapter of this book gives background information on the biological chemical genetics evolution basis of biochemistry It explains the cell in enough detail to understand references made to the cell components later on in the textbook Another thing I found is a detailed explanation of D and L configuration as opposed as just saying all amino acids found in proteins are L isomers No other book I ve read explains where the L D configuration convention came from and students usually confuse it with levorotatory and dextrorotatory when they are different things altogether It also has an entire chapter dedicated to water chemistry which serves as both a review and a basis for understanding the importance of hydrogen bonding in biochemistry in later chaptersIn essence this is a very COMPLETE book in the sense that it covers material not found in traditional biochemistry books ex Berg Stryer but that is necessary to understand other aspects of biochemistry If you are planning to specialize in the study of biochemistry you definitely want this book as part of your reference collection

    Good book. Helpful for any level of biochemistry class one pursues within the college environment. Has enough adequate details as well. Really enjoyed the figures which can supplement the text of the book or the figures which can stand alone to describe other relevant processes. Has an online access password as well for reviewing ot

    I love this book. I have an earlier edition of this book that I got when taking undergraduate biochemistry in college. That was about a good decade ago. Technology changes so fast. Though its true molecules and their basi

    There's a lot to like about this textbook. The level of detail is not overwhelming, it's not too long, and the explanations are mostly clear. It has a good glossary, and includes short answers to all the problems at the ends of the chapters. It provides some physiology in a chapter on mammalian metabolism.

    The problems with this book are in organization. There is no subsection numbering, as if all subsections are of equal importance.

    Yay Biochem! This was way cheaper than the newer edition and is essentially the same book!
