HASH(0x90a2c6b4) out of 5 stars great book 2 Jan. 2014
By Reza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book as a complimentary book for my biochemistry class and it is great! Of all the biochemistry books I've seen, this one has the best pictures that show the metabolic pathways including ALL the details that go with them in a neat display. All chapters in this book start with a simple example of medical relevant topic that make the chapter more motivating to study.
HASH(0x920a8870) out of 5 stars so at least you feel like you've accomplished something 30 Mar. 2015
By Poiuytrew.q - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book isn't hard to read. It's detailed, and then it's not.

It's more of a review book and if you're crammed for time, then it's the Go-To. For example, I would read Harper's then Devlin's, and one word or short phrase in Harper's has a long explanation in Devlin. Then you realize that some important concept was mentioned in Harper's, but you don't always get to see the true value or importance unless you already knew it. Hence, it's a review book. If you want to really learn something, you need a bigger book.

The chapters are short, so at least you feel like you've accomplished something.

HASH(0x90c86288) out of 5 stars WORST BIOCHEMISTRY BOOK 29 Jun. 2015
By nat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Haper's biochemistry, is the WORST biochemistry book. It is so difficult to read because they mix different part together for example they mix eukaryotic DNA replication and prokaryotic replication together and you get very confused as to what they are talking about. They also mention random things like DnaA and DnaE and it is not mentioned what these enzymes do but they mention them as if you know what they are talking about. I look forward to burning this book it is the worst book ever suggested by my school and is extremely not useful for students. I would suggest lipincotts as it is clear and succinct and does not confuse concepts. May I also say that our teachers have had to correct part of this book when lecturing because the writers are wrong.
