There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I used this book Pelley 3ed and Champe 4ed as fundamental preparation for Step1, which I recently passed Jan I feel that the foundation provided by the Bchm review allowed me to proceed through the other topic areas without always having that nagging feeling as to what was being talked about when a reference to Bchm was made in the discussion.

I spent about 15 intense days of review in both books. As an example consider the topic, metabolism.

Champe covers panela standard information in 5 or 6 chapters. Very basic clinical correlations are included and go into sufficient Bchm detail to be of value in understanding the issue. Also more complex Bchm processes specific to the particular metabolic process being discussed are introduced ie, signal transduction are introduced and explained in glucose metabolism.

This can be helpful or distracting depending on bikchemistry background. And at least to me never really finish an adequate overview on aspects on protein metabolism, particularly on integration with other macronutrients. Champe includes a chapter on insulin and glucagon, as well as a chapter on integration of glucose, lipid and nitrogen metabolism as a whole.

The integration chapter is probably the lamela incomplete and I had to go constantly to Wikipedia for even “general details” particularly regarding the influence of protein metabolism Nonetheless, little was addressed in Champe.

I was surprised at how the basics were not included. I must say over that Champe’s chapter on vitamins particularly their application in bchm processes was exceptional given the level of the book. Unfortunately there was not a corresponding chapter on minerals or micronutrients. Champe does a good job on nucleotide metabolism and gene expression.

Overall, Champe’s coverage although not complete provides a sound fundamental “review” of metabolism and gene expression for medical students. And particularly for those needing to understand a basic definition or a basic process in detail. The amino acid and enzymes basics at the front of the text were also well done and vhampe useful review.


First, this book cannot be compared to Goljan RR Pathology. It fails for coverage, clarity of writing and diagrams, and for completeness. Here I mean completeness to hcampe a measure of the finished product, and not the extend of the material covered.

There are several diagrams accompanying the text used to illustrate explanations that have pajela steps but have no reference to the numbering system used when discussed in the narrative. This appears to be in the chapters toward the end of the book In the earlier chapters, this is not the case.

Consider the glycolysis explanation has a full page diagram biocbemistry numbered steps and the text explanation actually is paragraphs referenced to the diagram numbers.

In the nucleotide chapters cnampe of the illustrations used come from from another of Palley’s Bchm texts, and at least to me are never completely integrated into this text. There is no mention to the illustration numbering in the text discussing these diagrams. Overall, I must say in Pelley many of the important diagrams are somewhat confusing, and I finally used diagrams I found on Wikipedia or from Champe Pelley really suffers on overall integration of aspect of metabolism and the actual chapter on integration is weak in explanation and includes with many impressive at least at first glance but actually pamlea space-filling?

The pmaela strengths this book brings is it provides greater clinical correlation than that of Champe’s text. The side margin notes are here buochemistry in RR Pathology are here but seem incomplete, often not well placed ie, text will break to nest page but margin notes remain of previous page.

The other thing is that the clinical correlations just seem to be dumped into the text bchm narrative rather than integrated into the text. Champe actually does a better job on a basic presentation biochemisrty each of these groups of diseases. To its credit, the Pelley books includes in a few pages a very useful review of basic medical genetics.

I can not say the same thing about the Champe text. The “cheesie” things mostly cosmetics regarding the Lippicott layout I first noticed in Champe remain so, but I did grow to appreciate Champe well written narrative and completeness of the presentation.

I feel medical education suffers for her recent death.

I am disappointed that now it will not be published. In finishing, an example on completeness and depth of materiel covered for both books The general introductory explanations USMLEWorld provided to support their answer to a particular question often had a better and more informative and concise overview of the topic than that provided by Champe and more so Pelly There is a concise discussion of receptor tyrosine kinases and chamep kinase-associated receptors that easily tops the little provided in Pelley or Champe.

Lippincott’s Illustrated Reviews – Biochemistry. I found this book to be fantastically illustrated and just the right amount of thoroughness for a review book. I seldom used it during the Biochemistry class as it didn’t go into the level of detail expected biochemistty school exams.

However it was quite useful for a quick resource if I was struggling with a concept. The book was a fantastic tool in the couple of days I had to prepare for the NBME after the end of the class. I read it from cover to cover in 2 days, stopping along the way to check my notes on a few concepts that were superficially covered.


I was more than pleased with my score after using this as my main source to prepare aside from studying hard during the course, obviously. Key words are often bolded to make skimming easy.

All major topics covered by the usmle step 1 are concisely and intelligently covered in this book. The figures are amazing and integrate concepts so that you are sure to get the big picture and the most important points from each chapter.

I use this as my main textbook for my medical bicohemistry course. After I get the concepts covered in this book, filling in the details from lectures or my required textbook, Textbook of Biochemistry With Clinical Correlationsis easy. I am sure that it will make studying for step 1 easier too since, with the aid of this book, I have been able to focus biochemistty the big picture from day 1.

Also, if there is no preview here on amazon, I think the book’s website has sample chapters. I would give it six stars if i could. This book describes biochemistry in such a quick and easy way. It is very high yield. Read before class, go to class, study for the test, and clear some soace on the fridge for an A. For all of the other premed gunners, checkout case files biochemistry. It links the topics of biochem and medicine and also is another way to learn and review biochemistry topics.

I am writing this review from the point of view of a first year medical student, having taken a fairly detailed course in undergrad biochemistry. Having said that, I find Lippincott’s Illustrated Biochemistry one of the best books written on the subject. The main advantage of using Lippincott’s is in its concise and clear language. It explains almost everything you need to know about chamep biochemistry in a very easy to understand language, with the help of some great illustrations.

I absolutely love the chapter summaries and the concept maps at the end of the chapter – very useful for a quick review. Highly recommended for a medical students! This is the best help I ever had while taking level biochemistry at my university. I went to this chakpe for almost everything. The pictures and explanations as well as applications helped me learn biochem 1 and 2 much more efficiently.

This book is very helpful if you have already taken biochemistry before, especially applied biochemistry towards medicine. It really breaks down pathways step by step with very colorful and clear drawings.

However, remember that this is a review text so it will not champd into great detail. Still a great book. See all 42 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now.
