Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I have taught biochemistry to medical students and to undergraduates and graduate students, at both Temple University School of Medicine and at Case Western Reserve University, since 1968, so that I have had a great deal of experience in the field and have a feel for what works well for medical students.
Medical Biochemistry at a Glance would be an excellent book for USMLE Step 1. In my experience, medical students (and pre-medical students) would greatly benefit from reading it in preparation for the exam.
This compares very well with Lippincott’s Biochemistry - this has the right price and approach to compete with Lippincott for a less expensive and more accessible alternative to the larger text books that are out there.
I like the way it combines the metabolic pathways and principles in such a creative fashion, and the metabolism sections are among the best I have read and the easiest to understand. Metabolism is a very complicated subject and, in my experience, most teachers of the subject would really benefit from your text. (Richard W. Hanson, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine)

From the Publisher
“It will also be essential reading for those preparing for professional qualifications such as FIBMS and FRCPath, possibly even MRCP, and will serve as an excellent resources for the more senior researcher, lecturer and academic.” (The Bulletin of The Royal College of Pathologists, 1 January 2013)

Clinical Pathology for the Veterinary Team will help experienced veterinary technicians set up various clinical laboratory diagnostic tests. It provides a good explanation of basic laboratory practices, the underlying concepts of many laboratory tests, and the physiology of common disease conditions. This book is well worth the price. (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2010) This book provides a good overall summary of basic clinical pathology in small animals. Although it is fairly short and concise, it contains all the necessary relevant information and includes a CD that takes readers thorough six complicated cases, step by step. This is a useful book that would be a handy reference to have in a practice. It is easy to read, concise, and informative. Although it is aimed at small animal veterinary teams, it includes limited information about large animal species, which is important for a good, general understanding. (Doodys, December 2010) Clinical Pathology for the Veterinary Team offers a fine recourse for technical team members involved in clinical diagnostic evaluation. Machinery calibration, normal anatomy, clinical diagnostics and more are revealed in chapters that provide key technical information for Obtaining and evaluating samples, surveying the disease process, the progress of identification and treatment, and including a DVD with interactive cases. Vet collections need this! (THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW, November 2010) Rosenfeld, a veterinarian who is associated with an education corporation that specializes in seminar training for the hospital team, and Dial (veterinary science and microbiology, U. of Arizona) provide a resource for technical veterinary team members performing clinical diagnostic evaluation in small animal lab work.
