About this book

This first book in "McGraw-Hill's Basic Concepts Series" pioneered a method of presenting hard-to-grasp topics in a readily understandable manner, thereby helping students survive the rigors of medical school. The second edition continues to innovatively review the toughest concepts in biochemistry for maximum comprehension in a short period of time. Unlike conventional texts or review books that stress memorizing facts, basic concepts stresses the mastering of fundamental concepts, so that the reader truly comprehends the material and feels comfortable applying it. Dr. Gilbert uses simple, jargon-free language and award-winning teaching techniques including algorithms, mnemonics and clinical examples. Material is presented in a building block approach, in bite-size summary form, from easy to harder-to-grasp concepts.
