Lol i have had the same thing going with me ...

So I watched Kaplan lectures and read notes .. now i'm doing them second time and annotating in FA. especially in molecular section, i think that we have to UNDERSTAND what's in KLN and memorize FA section. it's impossible to retain all the Biochem stuff in mind, hense it's not as heavily tested. More emphasis are made on Clinical importance of metabolic biochemistry.

Molecular part must be learned very well (many use HY molecular but i prefer kaplan WITH VIDEOS). since many of test takers post that this part of biochem is tested in kind of weird way...
we all hope that these q-s are experimental part of the test
