Medical Biochemistry's general organisation is excellent. I like the full-colour illustrations and the clinical text boxes that keep me interested when I'm just about to nod off. The attempt to give an overview of the entire book on one page is brave and well worth a look.
Although the level of detail is extensive, it is well broken up by headings and this makes it ideal for PBL. Content is bang up-to-date and concise. After using the online resources of a few American textbooks, it's refreshing to see UK course relevant Multiple Choice Questions, Patient Orientated Problems and Short Answer Questions that Medical Biochemistry's online resources offer.
For a biochemistry book that provides maximum clinical relevance look no further. I would recommend that any library catering for Medical students stock many copies of this book.
Biochemistry is quite an important and I found it quite difficult. This book is quite comprehensive but has been presented in a pleasing readable form that will suit med students for their pre-clinical years as well as clinical years
My lecturers notes aren't always all that in depth, so I bought this book to help me study for my exams. It is brilliant. I love the way it is laid out and everything is clearly explained well. Definitely recommend buying it.
