Biochemistry,Third Edition merges a classical organization and presentation with contemporary insight, information, and technology, to make modern biochemistry interesting and accessible to today s students Thoroughly updated to include the latest information, perspectives, and experimental techniques, the text is now supported by integrated media resources designed by the co author Kevin Ahern Together, the text and media resources provide students and instructors with a doorway to the vast world of biochemistry that is continuously evolving and which greatly exceeds what could be covered in a conventional textbook alone As in previous editions, the authors introduce nucleic acid structure early to clarify presentations of protein structure and function , emphasize the experimental roots of biochemistry past and present , continually emphasize the energy relationships in biochemistry, and take a stepwise approach to complex metabolic pathways The result is a thorough grounding in biology at the atomic molecular level The explosive growth of biochemistry, molecular biology, and biotechnology makes this approach particularly relevant for today s life science students....

Biochemistry by Mathews and van Holde is one of the best texts for any biochemist's need. The authors discuss almost all of the subjects any biochemistry class ever comes across. The language presented throughout the text is simple, yet cover the fundamental concepts nicely. The questions and answers given at the end of each chapter are well prepared and extremely useful for test preparation. This text is suitable for both medical and pure science students. I would give two thumbs up for Dr. Mathews and van Holde and cannot wait to see the new edition coming up.
I have not seen the 2000 edition yet, but the previous edition is very elegantly written. Compare with some other biochemistry text, this book provides another view into biochemistry. Almost (if not all) all the chapters have a special topic after the chapter text, showing you how we can turn the dry text into useful experimental tools for solving life's problem, scientifically. These special topics also give us a view into the physical chemistry world, which has become more and more important at the time.
It's difficult to review a book on a subject as biochemistry, when you're a student, and this is the only book I've read on the subject. This book is used by medical students at the Universty of Bergen, Norway, and as a student I find it very easy to read (if you have mind that biochemistry is not an easy subject). The illustrations and figures in the book are helpful, and often, you can get the essential in the text by only looking at the figures.
I have not seen the 1995 edition yet, but have the 1990 edition of Mathews and van Holde. For anyone interested in structural biology and especially protein structure, I think this book is probably the best place to get started. It seems to me to be an excellent text all-around.
This book is unmatched in it's quality for introductory biochemistry. The detailed diagrams and explainations are easy to grasp and well put together. I would strongly recommend this book for any biochemists.
A very complete source for the basics of Biochem. A must read for the budding Biochemist. Dr Mathews was my professor for this course in college and has written a very complete introduction to the field.
