Key Features :

  • Much more concise and to the point than other textbooks that I checked out.
  • Most topics are not over-complicated & hence remain easy to remember.
  • Salient features & important points summarized at the end of every chapter which becomes excellent for revision.
  • The pages of the book are not over-glossy. Yes, that matters when your highlighter ink gets smudged across the page.
  • Real clinical pictures help to understand the practical aspect of the theory.
  • Fully updated, new edition providing students with comprehensive guide to biochemistry
  • Includes a free booklet of revision exercises and free online access
  • Highly illustrated with nearly 1500 figures, images, tables and illustrations
  • Previous edition published in 2010
