The Absolute, Ultimate Guide to Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry 4e
A struggling beginner, October 23, 2005
This book is a great needed idea. If you are using the accompanying text in your class this is a must have. BUT the authors decided in their wisdom to put questions in each section that are for discussion (3-4 pages for each chapter).Great right? They don’t have any answers for the discussion questions! The given reason is that it will make you, the student, a better biochemist. Should you find study groups a waste of time (I do), then you read the text several times trying to find the right answer and are uncertain if you ever found it.
On a positive note there are crossword puzzles and tests at each chapter that do have answers. They also included complete answers to the problems in the text. I am using the discussion questions as a map to read the text and it matches perfectly.
If you buy this book by the text too as this is not a stand alone book.
