    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend some good Biochemistry books that will help throughout the whole 3 year course, rather than just for the first or second year.

    Thanks x

    Stryer's Biochemistry is good, but really in third year you should be reading reviews and research papers, not text books.

    Agree with Stryer, would also add Molecular Biology of the Cell by Alberts. Disagree that you shouldn't use text books in final year.

    I think we both understood fine. He is saying that there isn't a book that covers third year and you shouldn't be using them at that point. I disagree that you shouldn't be using them, although the emphasis will move away.

    Stryer is much more readable than Lehninger IMO.

    I see.

    Stryer sounds good then.
    I'll try and find them both at my uni and see which one I prefer. Thanks
