About this book

Biochemistry: Essential Concepts presents the basic concepts covered in one-semester biochemistry courses, without all of the extraneous details found in most texts. It is a concise and manageable presentation of the basic biochemical principles together with problem-solving and review tools that keeps students focused on the essential concepts they need to learn.

In the one-semester biochemistry course, most students feel overwhelmed by the amount of material covered in lectures and the task of identifying exactly what they should take with them upon completion of the course; therefore, Hardin's "Biochemistry: Essential Concepts" extracts and presents the essential core concepts imbedded in a typical biochemistry textbook and explains them in a variety of contexts, so students are more likely to gain a conceptual understanding of the processes of biochemistry.

"Biochemistry: Essential Concepts" serves as an excellent background for those students that go on to take more advanced or more in-depth biochemistry courses. To further reinforce core concepts, the last 40% of the book is devoted to a set of review questions and practice tests. The text is divided into 30 chapters and designed to be assigned as supplement to the main text in the course, however it can be used as a stand alone text.
