About this book

The ideal foundation of a one-semester course for undergraduate students, Stenesh's Biochemistry presents the basic body of biochemical knowledge and a thorough exposition of fundamental biochemical concepts. Carefully balancing primary and secondary topics, this introductory text covers the essentials in proper depth to establish a firm foundation for further study. Superior to any other first level text available, Stenesh's Biochemistry features: clear writing, thorough explanations, and precise definitions. comprehensive study sections for all chapters, consisting of both review-type questions and calculation-type problems, graded by difficulty and including answers selected reading lists concise chapter summaries two-color text 529 illustrations a separate chapter on bioenergetics, and an extensive index. Four appendixes review acid-base calculations, the principles of organic chemistry, the tools of biochemistry, and oxidation-reduction reactions, and a separate Solutions Manual presents step-by-step answers to problems.

'Attractive and inviting, understandable...definitely written at the right level for my students...excellent.' Thomas G. Waddell, University of Tennessee, Chattanooga 'Written well. Engaging. Lucidly presented...extremely complete...one of the best... Very nicely done!' Thomas W. Sneider, Colorado State University, Ft. Collins
