From the Back Cover:

Essential Biochemistry by Charlotte Pratt and Kathleen Cornely is a compact and comprehensive survey of contemporary biochemistry developed with student success in mind. Designed primarily for the one-term introductory course in biochemistry, this new text takes a modern and selective approach to this vast and fast moving field of science. The text is deliberately concise and focused on key ideas and topics. Numerous example problems in the text and rich end-of-chapter problem sets underscore the authors’ dedication to Problem Based Learning. In addition, state-of-the-art new media on both the enclosed CD and book website bring biomolecular structures to life for students and round out a powerful new learning package for any student taking a first course in biochemistry.

From the Pre-publication Reviews:

“The text is well written and easy to read. Without sacrificing accuracy and going into too much detail, the authors skillfully present traditional as well as up-to-date information on structure-function relationships of biomolecules. The sample problems are well placed and reinforce basic concepts. Also, the problems at the end of chapters are relevant, original, and thought provoking without being excessive. Students will find the book readable, informative, and enjoyable.” – Paul Azari, Colorado State University

“I found the text exceptionally clear and readable. It does an excellent job of explaining difficult biochemical principles and integrating concepts and systems in a way that will be easily understood and appreciated by students.” – Chrsitine Hrycyna, Purdue University

“My students will like the book because it is easy to read, has clear learning objectives, an interactive CD, and a website where they can go for self-quizzing on key concepts. The authors have thought of everything to make learning biochemistry fun and easy.” – Lisa Wen, Western Illinois University
