This book is an excellent amalgamation of teaching-learning. It attempts at exposing the students to the ideal answers to questions often asked. The questions not only test the knowledge but also incorporate the clinical/ applied aspects of Biochemistry which are so important to help the students to think out of the box. Major principles are spelt out and questioned. Further, this book also incorporates the vertical integration of Biochemistry curriculum, which is needed to be implemented to help the practising doctor to correlate all aspects of Biochemistry. The fact that a lot of laboratory know how is essential for the budding doctor has been tackled by introducing a chapter on Clinical Biochemistry laboratory. Besides, what to expect as far as the biochemistry analytes are concerned when seeing the patients is also broached. Thus, this book is an excellent amalgamation of the old and new. Principles in Biochemistry are explained and how they are used for patient care is elaborated. We are sure the book will stand in good stead throughout the years of the undergraduate career of the budding doctors.
