Description of Marks Basic Medical Biochemistry
Marks’ Basic Medical Biochemistry: A Clinical Approach 5th Edition is one book all biochemistry lovers and haters will look forward to and have been relying on for a long time. This subject is considered one of the most boring among all due to the different words and formulas that need remembering, it makes it tougher. This book though filters it all in a very sophisticated and user friendly manner, making it easier to study and remember for longer times.
- The first lecturer in my freshman biochem class was a Nobel Prize winner. I had difficulty staying awake. It can be a boring subject. Practically all the sections were taught by PhDs, intelligent men to be sure, but there was hardly any clinical correlation. We had to wait until junior year for that. Lieberman and Marks were not the first to use a clinical approach, but they are among the best when it comes to presenting a complex subject in meaningful steps. The sections and chapters are well organized. At the end of each chapter are Key Comments, Clinical Comments, and Biochemical Comments. The review questions have a clinical slant. I have not read many other current biochemistry books designed for medical students, but I think this is an excellent one.
- Good pictures, most explanations quite clear. Some calculations assume the reader just finished a course in pre-college algebra and could have been simplified, such as the section on acids and bases early in the book.
Other problem I have with this book: The Waiting Room felt like a complete waste of time. I want to learn concepts first, the patients will inevitably come. I was hoping the authors would eliminate that aspect in their book, but only progress made in this latest edition is to follow the HIPPA regulations and use initials to ID the fantasy patients.
Otherwise, I find some concepts better- explained in Marks than elsewhere, such as the very- overdone-for beginners-in- Biochemistry Lehninger. Definitely wasted money on that book! However, you will not waste money on this latest edition of Marks basic medical biochemistry. Plenty of clarifying illustrations and explanations for novices in medical biochemistry. 5 stars.
Dr. Michael W. Lieberman is an Emeritus Member of Houston Methodist Research Institute. He formerly held the positions of CEO and Director of Research Institute as the Ernest Cockrell, Jr. Distinguished Endowed Chair. He was also chair of the Department of Pathology at Houston Methodist Hospital, Professor of Pathology at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University, and Professor of Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Houston.
A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he is a graduate of Yale University and received his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Dr. Lieberman’s research has focused on cancer including the repair of DNA damage by carcinogens, gene expression in cancer and the role of glutathione in the protection of cells from carcinogens and environmental agents.
