About this book


This book is intended to be a review. We assume the reader has - ready had a course in biochemistry. The book covers only the high­ lights and omits much detailed knowledge that is usually found in textbooks, to which the reader should turn for further reference. We hope those who are studying for medical national board examinations will find it particularly useful. To this end we have included, with most chapters, some multiple-choice questions whose answers can be found in the text. Each chapter has been contributed by a colleague who is an expert in the field and/or an experienced teacher of the subject. The words are the authors' own, though we have done some editing in order to achieve a reasonably consistent format. Because of the multiple au­ thorship, there is inevitably some unevenness in the depth of treat­ ment of the various topics, but we accept responsibility for decisions on what to include and what to leave out. John w. campbell, Ph.D., a graduate of this institution, executed the drawings. We did some fig­ ures ourselves, typed most of the text, and printed all of it on our PC's. Future editions, should this one meet with success, will be revised periodically. We welcome comments and constructive suggestions.
