CLINICAL BIOCHEMISTRY made rediculously simple, 2nd edition

Emphasizes the metabolic pathways (carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids) and their diseases, for medical students and other health professionals. Includes a large foldout Biochemistry-land Map. Medical students often complain that their biochemistry courses do not focus on clinical relevance. This book, while not a reference book or a dissertation on all aspects of biochemistry, selects the most clinically relevant material that every clinician should know, and presents it in a way that enables the student to quickly see the subject as a conceptual whole.
A conceptual approach to clinical biochemistry, with humor. Includes a color map of Biochemistry-land (an amusement park in which clinical biochemistry is seen as a whole, along with its key pathways, diseases, drugs, and laboratory tests). For biochemistry courses and medical Board review.
Covers carbohydrates, lipids, DNA replication & transcription, nucleotide degradation, etc.

Lecture Notes: Immunology, 6th Edition

This introductory text provides a student-friendly review of essential immunity and immunopathology topics. Key concepts are introduced in an incremental fashion to provide a thorough overview of the field.
Closely tailored to the undergraduate immunology curriculum, Part 1 outlines basic immunology, while Part 2 covers more disease-related and clinical aspects. The new edition of this popular title features a fully updated overview of the roles and regulation of the cells and molecules of the immune system. Key point summaries have been expanded, and key objectives added to the start of each chapter, to help the reader focus on the essential ‘take-home’ messages. Readers can then test themselves using the brand new self-assessment section containing problem-solving questions and extended matching questions (EMQs).
Including simple, memorable illustrations and quick reference tables, Lecture Notes: Immunology provides the perfect distillation of information for easy recall at revision time, and is ideal for both the novice and those with some prior knowledge of the field.
