Download this PDF book: Biochemistry For Dummies 3rd Edition by John T. Moore, Richard H. Langley 

Biochemistry is the science of the chemical processes that allow for…well…life. If it moves, breathes, eats, or sleeps, biochemistry can probably explain how. So, it stands to reason that the fundamentals of biochemistry can get a little complicated. 

In Biochemistry For Dummies, you’ll explore the carbons, proteins, and cellular systems that make up the biochemical processes that create and sustain life of all kinds. 

Perfect for students majoring in biology, chemistry, pre-med, health-services, and other science-related fields, this book tracks a typical college-level biochemistry class. It simplifies and clarifies the subject with easy-to-follow diagrams and real-world examples. 

You’ll also get: 

Explorations of cell biology, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and other fundamental building blocks of life 

Discussions of the basic structures common to all living organisms 

Treatments of the microscopic details of life that make us all tick 

If you’re looking for a hand with some of the trickier parts of biochemistry—or you just need an accessible overview of the subject—check out Biochemistry For Dummies today! 

Biochemistry For Dummies is an overview of the material covered in a typical college-level biochemistry course. In this third edition, we update the content and correct the errors and omissions that crept into the first two editions. 

We hope that this edition is of even more help than the second. We’ve made every attempt to keep the material as current as possible, but the field is changing ever so quickly.

The basics, however, stay the same, and that’s where we concentrate our efforts. We also include information on some of the applications of biochemistry that you read about in your everyday life, such as forensics, cloning, gene therapy, genetic testing, and genetically modified foods.

If you’re taking a biochemistry course, use this rather inexpensive book to supplement that very expensive biochemistry textbook. If you bought this book to gain general knowledge about a fascinating subject, try not to get bogged down in the details. 

Skim the chapters. If you find a topic that interests you, stop and dive in. Have fun learning something new. You don’t have a whole lot of money invested in this book, so don’t feel obligated to read everything.
