Lists with This Book. This book finally ties together the threads of courses in all the major biological sub-disciplines biology, genetics, cell biology, microbiologyand places them firmly in the context of the chemistry of life. Would be a good read in conjunction with an introductory text on physiology. I obviously did not read this book cover to cover, but the sections that I did read were fairly easy to understand, but also managed to go into a fair amount of detail. Jun 15, Nu-Jahat-Jabin rated it it was amazing Shelves: Sep 13, Meghana Rastogi rated it it was amazing Shelves: Bible for Biochemistry, easy enough to understand: I had the privilege of being taught by both of the authors.
They are amazing teachers, and this book reflects the clarity of their in-class teaching as well as the depth of their knowledge. I also have a huge crush on one Mr. One of the best textbooks I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. I still use it today, and I’m not even in school.
May 25, Karim Salama rated it it was amazing. I cann’t talk about Lehninger. He is the supervisor of my supervisors in Egypt. Dr Hussein Ghaleb one of the most important biochemistry professors in Egypt. He presented Egypt as a member of Unisco in 60’s in a very creative project that preserve a large amount of sugar to Cuba.

The conversati I cann’t talk about Lehninger. He was born at Aswan at Graduated from University of King Foaad The first. He has a certification from The king Farouk. He has a pisture with Gamal abdel-naser. The second Egyptian president. Recommended to Dan’s by: Simply trying to erxpand my knowledge in specific fields. It was a good biochemistry book, even though sometimes I found it a bit overloaded. All in all, it was good and the concepts were explained really well.
Now I have to do the exam. May 02, Luis rated it it was amazing Shelves: Dec 01, Elisabeth rated it it was amazing Shelves: As a biochemistry undergraduate student with an interest in understanding the more comprehensive details of biochemical reactions, I found Lehninger to be very enlightening. For sure, there is a lot of information in this book. It exceeded what I needed to know to succeed in my courses.
A strong background in organic chemistry is useful so that you may firmly understand the reaction pathways and molecular interactions. The mechanisms are not advanced, but having a solid understandin 5th edition.

The mechanisms are not advanced, but having a solid understanding of electrophilicity, nucleophilicity, electron density, resonance, sterics, hydrogen bonding, van Der Helson interactions, and other fundamentals from organic chemistry will help you to grasp the material more quickly.
If you are taking biochemistry: None of my classmates read the book, and they struggled severely. You are taking a class now where you have to read the book to do well. Find a schedule that works for you so that you can read, slowly, through the material. This isn’t a story novel. You have to slow down. Re-draw the mechanisms yourself. When you get to metabolism, clear your bedroom wall and start taping nelso pathways.
Do it like CSI and use strings to show connections between cycles. Overall, most of the diagrams and mechanisms are sufficient. At times, they condense the mechanisms down in a way that can be confusing. I found myself decoding “too much going on at once” at times. I had no problem navigating the diagrams and concepts.
Understanding entropy, enthalpy, and Gibbs melson helps a lot when biocyemistry enzymes and protein folding. My piece of advice is to learn the amino acids and nucleic acids now.
Don’t put it off and slack it thinking you don’t have to learn them. I found the kinetics sections to be confusing.
That may just be me. I referred to an MCAT prep workbook for more basic coverage of kinetics. It is very dense with both “need to know” content and details for deeper understanding. My complaint here is that some of the mechanisms seem to try to show “too much at once” like I mention above. I am also very sad to say that I can’t find sufficient information on Lactate Dehydrogenase, even though it is mentioned numerous times in the homework problems.
Anyway, don’t lose the bigger picture of these pathways and their regulation.
You may easily recognize the effect insulin has on glycolysis, or gluconeogenesis, but don’t forget about the effect it has on fatty acids. Remember to make note of those connections.
The citric acid cycle: Got me a top score. If you have taken college intro biology then all this will be familiar. DNA polymerase, leading strands, lagging strands There are some topics that cannot answer all your questions because, well, we don’t know the answer!
That isn’t always made clear but it is made clear enough, I suppose. My professor works in this field and his added contributions are helpful, but I think the book rpinciples is still strong. Homing endonucleases are the creepiest things ever. Jun 04, Agustina Dapueto rated it it was amazing. I didn’t actually read the whole book, but most of it, at least around pages. To be honest, I hated having to read this book, because it was for University, and I’ll probably will have to read some of it again for finals in July and I will hate even more.
Aside from that, this is a really good book! I mean, I didn’t like reading it because who likes studying? But it was so useful and well explained, it fulfilled its purpose, it did what no teacher ever could, it taught me metabolism and I un I didn’t actually read the whole book, but most of it, at least around pages. But it was so useful and well explained, it fulfilled its purpose, it did what no priniples ever could, it taught me metabolism and I understood it.
I’m gonna name this book Lehny because he has been my friend for a whole semester and even though I hate him, I love him. Mar 12, Erin rated it it was amazing. Although I’m required to read this book, it is very neat how the body works. I am fascinated by how well God has created all of us, and how perfectly we seem to function with ease. It is also neat 20008 understand what happens when the systems are not properly functioning and how it all breaks down.
