4.0 out of 5 stars Good for starting out, but... 14 Aug 2013
By TomReed
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm currently studying Biomedical Science at university and one of my modules next semester was Biochemistry, while doing my A levels this was definitely one of the areas I needed to read up on and improve before starting the module. I purchased this book and have been pleasantly surprised by it. It has all the basics of biochemistry and covers a wide variety of topics. However, when I say basics, I mean literally just the basics or the 'fluff'. It lacks university and possible even A level depth. Since reading this book I have purchased another Biochemistry textbook which has much more detail but I couldn't possibly understand half the concepts without reading this book first. So if you're like me and need a bit of a jumpstart to biochem before reading the text books, I would highly recommend this product (especially as it's under £10 - a lot cheaper than other introductory biochem books)! But, if you're background on biochem is pretty good, I'd steer clear!

I thought it would be more down to earth but in my opinion it tends to give the impression that one should be well up to that standard any way

4.0 out of 5 stars Good refresher/starter book. 20 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a biology student, who didn't do chemistry at A level, and was finding this to be a problem during my degree. Reading this book actually helped a lot, as it gave me the basic concepts of biochemistry, which allowed me to understand more complex concepts. However even though i'm doing a degree in biology, without chemistry A level it was quite a tough read. For a book labeled 'for dummies' it is definitely not dumbed down.
