DescriptionOne-semester biochemistry courses are notorious for overwhelming students with the magnitude of material covered in their texts and lectures. Biochemistry: Essential Concepts distills the basic ideas covered in a one-semester course without the extraneous details that burden most texts.
Authors Charles Hardin and James Knopp demonstrate the core concepts of biochemistry--including cell biology, amino acids, metabolism, and DNA--in a variety of real-world contexts. With the last forty percent of the text devoted to review questions and practice tests, Biochemistry: Essential Concepts equips students for success in the one-semester biochemistry course and prepares them for their future studies and careers.
- A concise, clear format that summarizes the essential information in a standard biochemistry textbook.
- Review Sessions and Practice Exams aid the development of a sound foundation through the application of concepts.
- Reiteration of core concepts shows students that the same fundamental principles govern many aspects of biological processes.
- Real-world applied examples edify a student's understanding of medicinal biochemistry and serve the needs and interests of pre-professional students.
"Biochemistry: Essential Concepts fills an important void in the repertoire of biochemistry textbooks. As a supplement it is perfect!"--Ales Vancura, St. John's University
"An excellent supplement to traditional one-semester biochemistry texts. It distills the essential elements of biochemistry into short segments, allowing students to get the major points without getting bogged down."--Christine Hrycyna, Purdue University
"I am certain that my students will benefit greatly from having Biochemistry: Essential Concepts as a study guide."--S. Madhavan, University of Nebraska Lincoln
