Summary

The ultimate goal of Introduction to General, Organic & Biochemistry is to teach the chemistry of the human body, while trying to show that each subsection of chemistry is important in its own right. In its entirety it can be used for a one-year course in chemistry, or parts of the book can be used in a one-term chemistry course. It is intended for nonchemistry majors, mainly those entering health science and related fields, such as nursing, medical technology, physical therapy and nutrition. Introduction to Organic & Biochemistry requires some general chemistry background.
