    "A comprehensive yet concise overview of the science behind common biochemical investigations, clearly demonstrating the reasoning for choosing different tests and how these are made within the clinical setting. This edition includes a range of case studies to demonstrate how key concepts apply to day-to-day practice, flow charts clearly demonstrating reasoning, processes and diagnostics, learning objectives at the start of each chapter, and a companion website featuring self-assessment and downloadable "key points" slides to aid revision. This title is ideal for medical students, junior doctors, and anyone looking for a summary of biochemistry and its relevance to the clinical setting"--Provided by publisher.
