Marks' Basic Medical Biochemistry: A Clinical Approach

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009 - Medical - 1011 pages
3 Reviews

A best-selling core textbook for medical students taking medical biochemistry, Marks' Basic Medical Biochemistry links biochemical concepts to physiology and pathophysiology, using hypothetical patient vignettes to illustrate core concepts. Completely updated to include full-color art, expanded clinical notes, and bulleted end-of-chapter summaries, the revised Third Edition helps medical students understand the importance of the patient and bridges the gap between biochemistry, physiology, and clinical care.

A new companion Website will offer the fully searchable online text, an interactive question bank with 250 multiple-choice questions, animations depicting key biochemical processes, self-contained summaries of patients described in the book, and a comprehensive list of disorders discussed in the text, with relevant Website links. An image bank, containing all the images in the text, will be available to faculty.

As a medical student, I really benefited a lot from this book. Found all the necessary information required in a simple way. What makes it special is the nice diagrams and clinical case scenarios provided in each chapter.

I'm studying medicine, and our biochem lecturer usually tends to use strangely scary diagrams to explain a simple concept, and its always confusing for everyone. But with this book, I got a good grasp of essential biochem for medicine. Give it a try
