I mean...at least in my case Dr Sam Turco is awesome.
What I am doing is hearing lectures and then I will do Questions only Biochem.

Default Dear Miss Patho

I had the exact same problem when I was reading biochemistry. I found that the best way to stick with the knowledge was: do some flash cards (Like the free ones in internet), and do questions... to challenge myself. After reviewing the flash cards over and over.. I started getting it and remember it, plus, I reviewed a lot of questions (also over and over)... this trick with the flash cards was given to me by Glomerulus. He has already made step 1 and he did it quite nice.

I hope that this can help you somehow...

Default Flashcards

I do flash cards form now and then but find out that the ones online work better for me.
When I get bored I do flash cards...try this site .

http://memorize.com/biochemistry-enzymes

I found this pretty useful...they keep on repeating the ones you get wrong over and over until you just come with the right answer after 3 or 4 times.

Theres another type of flash cards pretty popular....

Check this link for the info...

Default In the second link

The second link is a direct one to the program...
It should be easier than the others
Just click to the link on the blog and it will take you to the home site where you can download the anki program ,,,which is a special program to see flash cards

Was this the link you tried?


http://anki.googlecode.com/files/anki-1.2.8.exe

Give right click and open in a new tab

It should give you the option of installing the program
