Essential Biochemistry takes a selective approach to coverage, comprised of biology, premed, and allied health and presents a broad, but not overwhelming base of biochemical coverage that focuses on the chemistry behind the biology. Furthermore it relates the chemical concepts that scaffold the “biology” of biochemistry, providing practical knowledge as well as many problem-solving opportunities to hone skills. Essential Biochemistry is a “guided” tour of biochemistry that is selective in coverage and places information in its broader biological context for understanding. Chapters are intentionally short to alleviate information overload. Chapter opening sections, entitled This Chapter in Context, helps orient the reader to the main topics of the chapter and show how topics relate to previously learned material. Key Concepts at the beginning of each section help identify the most important takeaways in the section and provide an organizational outline for learning. Concept Review questions at the end of each section follows up on those key concepts by testing mastery.
