Le livre est arrivé en très bon état. Il était presque neuf, comme la description l'indiquait. Le produit est arrivé dans les délais. Merci!

Format: Hardcover
Filled to the brim with useful, concise information, and helpful explanations. It also has very complete coverage of a broad variety of concepts and fields of study of biochemistry. While it can at times get bogged down in the details, it was extremely helpful to me during my biochemistry class, and inspired in me a desire to continue educating myself in the field. I am keeping this book rather than selling it, because I'm certain it will be of great use to me in my further studies in biology and medicine.

Excellent book, no need to buy 4th edition. As I relaized it contains roughly the same content and images as 4th edition. So why pay more?

Biochemistry text that leans more on the chemistry side... May 31 2007
By Lucy Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was adopted by my university for a senior level / first year graduate level biochemistry course. It is well written and contains no messy jargon. Literally all of the text is useful information. In addition, it is concise.

My chief complaints about the book are: 1) the illustrations require substantial updating to be compared to what is presently available even in inferior texts. 2) it lacks clinical/biological correlations and focuses instead on the quantitative nature of biochemistry (acid base calculations etc) Clinical correlations are certainly essential to applying biochemistry concepts. If this book had either or both of these two items, it would have earned 5 stars from me!

Instead, I recommend the following texts:

- Biochemistry: outstanding illustrations and concept coverage.

- Marks' Basic Medical Biochemistry: A Clinical Approach: outstanding clinical correlations with concise concept coverage and good illustrations (although not in full color)

- Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry, Fourth Edition: outstanding text and illustrations!

Probably the best introductory text for Biochemistry. No Stereoviews? Nov. 9 2006
By Jonathan Brent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most readable texts for biochemistry on the market. It would be most useful for undergraduates and medical students. It is almost useless for graduate students in the biological sciences because it doesn't talk enough about experimental strategies. The older version of this text was much cooler because it has stereoviews. This feature makes the book stand out because the stereoviews are awesome. Whose idea was it to remove them??? This would make a good first book in biochemistry, but for upper level students I would recommend Stryer.

Why your reviews are important... Aug. 13 2006
By Henrik Kibak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am a biochemistry professor. After years of using another text I decided to try the Voet & Voet text. I was very excited about their latest edition and couldn't wait to teach with it. Unfortunately it was a disaster. There are far too many trees in Voet & Voet, and students couldn't see the forest this year. For next year I am looking at "Principles of Biochemistry" 4th edition by Horton et al.

So, in response to V. Kankanala below, student perspectives in these Amazon Reviews are very useful to those of us assigning the texts.

4/5 stars for the simplicity and organization of this textbook.It definitely goes into detail where needed and isn't hard to comprehend.

I used this textbook for a 300 level biochem1 course & it was very useful.
