I am currently studying BSc Biochemistry at University! I was wondering if anyone knows of a good text book that holds more or less all of the information I need to survive the first year of my course.

I only want this because of going through loads of different text books to find what I need?!

hi, according to research, this book on biochemistry has very high ratings and it is highly recommended.

"Biochemistry" 5th edition by Jeremy Berg and John Tymoczkohas

It provides more chemical and structural insights, and a web based media component created simultaneously with the text. Improved pedagogy includes: chapter opening outlines, expanded end of chapter problem sets, new types of problems, and special icons highlighting evolutionary coverage.

The one's I found most useful:
- Lehninger's Principles of Biochemistry
-Molecular Biology of Cell (Alberts)/ Essential Cell Biology
-(Lippincott's Biochemistry)

These were my main reference books. Depending on the module i.e Physiology, Neuroscience, I had to get some extra books from library covering those parts. The books mentioned above broadly cover all the cellular, biochemical parts and should suffice for year 1. Does your Uni have a reading list? My Uni gave us a list for recommended and compulsory reading for each module.
