Derived from the classic text originated by Lubert Stryer and continued by John Tymoczko and Jeremy Berg, Biochemistry: A Short Course focuses on the major topics taught in a one-semester biochemistry course. With its brief chapters and relevant examples, this thoroughly updated new edition helps students see the connections between the biochemistry they are studying and their own lives.
The focus of the 4th edition has been around:
- Integrated Text and Media with the NEW SaplingPlus
Paired for the first time with SaplingPlus, the most innovative digital solution for biochemistry students. Media-rich resources have been developed to support students’ ability to visualize and understand individual and complex biochemistry concepts. Built-in assessments and interactive tools help students keep on track with reading and become proficient problem solvers with the help and guidance of hints and targeted feedback–ensuring every problem counts as a true learning experience.
- Tools and Resources for Active Learning
A number of new features are designed to help instructors create a more active environment in the classroom. Tools and resources are provided within the text, SaplingPlus and instructor resources.
- Extensive Problem-Solving Tools
A variety of end of chapter problems promote understanding of single concept and multi-concept problems. Built-in assessments help students keep on track with reading and become proficient problem solvers with the help and guidance of hints and targeted feedback–ensuring every problem counts as a true learning experience. Unique case studies and new Think/Pair/Share Problems help provide application and relevance, as well as a vehicle for active learning.
