Ok, so what do you think is the best biochemistry book out there? I want to go into biochemistry and plan to buy a book to get me started. The money doesn't matter, i just want the best. If you have arguments in favour of your choice, please state them. Thanks

I used the Stryer, and I like it. Is it the best I don"t know. really I was going to the library and using others in complement. The Voet&Voet was one of my profs favorite, and was good too.

But in my experience, one book was not enough. And no books replaced a good prof.

The explanations and illustration in Stryer are great. It's a good book next to Alberts MrMistery :!:
