BRS Biochemistry provides excellent diagrams explaining processes. Most of the book is in an outline format of the major pathways. The endocrine chapter seems to be covered in several other books. The last chapter on biochemical abnormalities provides a good summary of biochemical pathology. The clinical correlation at the end of each chapter provides excellent material for board review, and it may be the only important parts of this book for a person with a strong understanding of biochemistry. This book would be great to have during the course since it does provide sufficient detail.
