This popular study guide and review provide a quick survey of the field of biochemistry, covering the essentials that students need to know. Includes board-type questions to give students experience for what they will encounter in actual examinations. Now thoroughly revised and updated throughout, with much new material on cholesterol and steroid metabolism, nutrition and protein synthesis. Plus, the authors have included a unique cross-referencing system to the book's companion volume, Harvey and Champe's Lippincott's Illustrated Review of Pharmacology.
