Book Description
This best-selling resource utilizes a comprehensive yet practical approach that students understand. The authors present facts and pathways to emphasize how the underlying biochemistry is related to the body’s overall physiological functions. Detailed case studies show students the relationship between biochemistry and clinical problems. The Second Edition has been heavily revised with completely updated illustrations while maintaining the unique, patient-oriented approach that made the original so popular.

A new CD-ROM in the back of the book features chapter-by-chapter test questions, detailed 3-D representations of enzyme structure, PowerPoint slides, and real patient stories.

The whole point of going to medical school is to be able to solve problems and apply basic scientific principles in solving those problems. This edition gives specific and memorable clinical cases that help one to remember and apply these priniciples in clinical practice. It also comes with a CD that is a great bonus. I heartily recommend this book to help explain and use the basic medical biochemistry principles. It starts with a look at the metabolic and nutritional needs of the human body, relevent to anyone, and a great place to start, whereas many other books like, Lehninger, start out with chemical theory. This makes Marks much more relevent to the medical student and much more interesting. I recommend this book for your library and practical use. Use Lehninger to keep the door open, and read Marks to feed your brain.
