6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Páll Vignir Axelsson Bryde on 10 Feb. 2004
Format: Paperback
If you're studying medicine, this book serves as a very good guide through biochemistry, since it is relatively compact (I was able to read it in 2 weeks, having had no previous biochemistry before) and it tells you what you need to know if you're studying medicine and it keeps you awake with little interesting bits of information. However, if biochemistry interests you a lot and you have plenty of time, you might want to buy some more detailed works, such as "Textbook of Biochemistry" by T.M. Devlin. Keep in mind though, "Principles of Medical Biochemistry" is little over 700 pages while "Textbook of Biochemistry" is about 1400 pages. This book however totally did the trick for me and I flew through biochemistry in my first semester of medical school. 5 stars of 5 available.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dr. J. Hilton on 8 Feb. 2011
Format: Paperback
I've had this book for several years and cannot recommend it highly enough. Very few textbooks in the medical field are so clearly, succinctly and interestingly written, despite the American spelling (look up "heme", not "haem" etc.). This book was excellent for my pre-clinical and then clinical studies as a medical student, and its uses are growing almost daily during my intercalated year.

No medical student's bookshelf could be complete without this book.

The right stuff! 22 Feb. 2010
By DocsRock - Published on
Format: Paperback
Alright! Listen ! if you want a book to help you with your Biochem PhD. this is not the one for you . But If you want to learn Biochem in a very clinically relevant way, look no further! Dr. Meisenberg has a very clear grasp of the material and conveys it well in this book. this is a book for medical students. if you are one .. you know as well as I do that we want to learn Biochem just enough to use it clinically and to do well on the USMLE. The Clinical associations and illustrations in this book make it just right for that purpose. Along with a bit of
Dr. meisenberg's intelectual humor, it makes biochem almost palatable!(You'll catch it in there here and there). You WILL find in this book all the info needed to rock the step ( as I did) in a short, fun, no fluff format.

Good Textbook 27 Dec. 2001
By Jeremy Reeves - Published on
Format: Paperback
The author, Dr. Meisenberg, actually teaches Biochemistry at the medical school I attend. I found the text very well formatted and the illustrations extremely helpful. I personally read this book from cover to cover and along with the BRS, I think Biochemistry doesn't have to be a painful experience. Meisenberg integrates metabolism and other important subjects into several chapters to re-emphasize key points over and over. Many elaborate illustrations and graphs make learning hard to remember facts easier, and with the help of pertinent biochemical clinical facts you'll soon find relevance in a clinical setting far from the classroom.

Great MEDICAL Biochemistry Textbook 10 May 2007
By Waiting In Anguish - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is designed to educate medical students. It is easy and if you do the questions at the end of the chapters it helps you have a sound foundation of medical biochemistry. It is CLINICALLY oriented!!!

Great for medical students 25 Oct. 2009
By Iniquity Bliss - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love this book - I would not, however, use this as your only biochem text book (I would also get Lippincott or the First Aid General Principles book). This book seems like it was written knowing where medical students run into problems. The book explains things simply and in a relatively easy to understand way. I also like the clinical applications in this book - not only is the biochemistry taught, but it also provides some clinical information as well. I didn't really like this when I was an M1, but now as I'm studying for my boards, I love it. I'll definitely reference this book for a long time.

Numerous Basic Errors 26 Aug. 2010
By John - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The error start in the second and third formulae in Chapter 1 (page 4). Both confuse the number (mol) and concentration (molarity), which any person who has had general chemistry should discover. In addition, it incorrectly states that it is 1 in 5 million molecules of water dissociate; it is correctly 1 in 555 million, which any person capable of basic math should discover. Numerous basic errors repeat to the end of the text. The number of basic errors in the text should cause doubt of its validity. Use Berg or Lehninger or Devlin.
