Overview

This series of books reflects the trend towards a core curriculum and self-directed learning. The content is restricted to the 'must know' core information presented in a synoptic style. The diagrams that support the text are in a style that the reader can remember and reproduce in examinations. Each chapter ends with a selection of self-assessment material and full explanatory answers. These consolidate and expand on the chapter contents. The series covers the entire curriculum in approximately twelve discipline-based volumes. This volume presents an integrated coverage of biochemistry. Despite the use of problem- and/or topic-based curricula students still respond to the security of a well-ordered presentation of the basic information by traditional discipline.

• Concise text of the essential core material.
• Accompanying self-assessment material ideal for self-directed learning.
• Simple line drawings of a style that can be easily reproduced in examinations.

• New smaller format to fit on bookshop shelves.
• New internal design to look more up to date.
• Much stronger series cover design to encourage bookshops to display as a series.
• Increased self-assessment.
• Includes the new OSCEs style questions that are increasingly used in examinations.
• More consistent use of learning objectives.
• Contents refined to take account of comments on first edition.
