Part of the best-selling Crash Course series, this book focuses on the essential information students really need to know about metabolic processes and nutrition.

Comprehensive yet concise, it is more than just an exam crammer. Each component is considered in an integrated format, putting the basic sciences in clinical context. Highly illustrated with clear accessible text, it uses features such as 'Hints and Tips' and 'Clinical Sketches' to make the content easy to absorb and remember. An extensive self-assessment section allows the reader to test their knowledge and identify areas needing further study.

Written by students for students, under faculty supervision, this new edition has been revised and updated throughout to reflect current curricula and exam formats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crash but don't burn! 5 Nov 2008
As with previously reviewed `Crash course' books, these texts are written for students by students, as such the understanding of the subject matter is made much easier due to the author considering your current knowledge is null and void!

What I enjoy the most about these books is how everything is broken down, right back to basics, to understand for example, `HOW' ATP is generated, and although when flicking through the book you may be tempted to put it right back on the shelf when you see some of the diagrams of certain synthesis productions and their subsequent stages, the supporting text does take you through each stage step by step.

The chapters on vitamins and minerals I believe would be of benefit for student nurses due to further understanding chemical implications and the chapter on metabolic disease is excellent detailing why they occur, complications and symptoms.

The only confusion I have to admit lies in chapter 10 which details how you should take a history, conduct an examination and your communication skills whilst doing so. There are many links towards the physical examination and that of metabolic ailments however the communication appears to be put in as an introduction to the examination - not that this is wrong, but it feels slightly misplaced within this text and as such I feel it should be given more of a topic on its own rather than unceremoniously `plonked' (technical term!) into a seemingly random chapter - whereby that topic is not only a textbook all on its own but a whole other review!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 10 Oct 2009
As always, the Crash Course series can really be trusted to get you through the tough topics!

I'm a 2nd year medical student, and must admit I HATED Nutrition and Metabolism as a lecture series. It's fairly abstract and personally I find it incredibly boring! I ended up missing most of the lectures as I wasn't getting anything out of them. Crash Course Metabolism and Nutrition really came through for me when it came to exam time. It explains even the hardest-to-grasp areas in plain and simple language, and doesn't overly rely on impossibly complicated diagrams.

I really can't recommend this text enough, as with all of the others in this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Saver 16 July 2011
By Iwan
I've seen a few of these crash course books and not all of them deliver all of the information you need for your finals. This one however definately played a big part in saving me from failing! Some topics suck as metabolism and nutrition need cutting down and this book does so gracefully whilst keeping all of the essential information you need. Definately reccomended for anybody struggling with the volume of metabolism notes given to them by lectures/in-depth textbooks or for those who just struggle with the concepts in general.
