Biochemistry Need advice about Biochemistry

Hello guys.
I planing to take my exam in June or July
my study materials are:
Kaplan for Biochemistry and physiology
BRS for pathology
HY for gross anatomy (just upper limb and lower limb)
HY for neuro anatomy
FA for the rest
I finished all the books listed above except the FA, I'm planing to start today with FA, but I need advice please about the Biochemistry section in FA " specially the guys who did the test" IS IT necessary to read the biochemistry from FA?????????? I'm planing to read it all except BIO section because I read it from kaplan and also I found it so annoying and confusing after I did kaplan, so please share your thoughts. Thank you in advance and wish all very good score.

I agree - you must read it in FA also. Kaplan is good but you need to make sure you have all the key points, which are summarized in FA. I know it's annoying and of all the subjects it's the least useful, but unfortunately we all have to do it. You only get to take the test once, might as well put forth your best effort

Correct Answer

i think if you do kaplan well enough you will find that first aid biochemistry is the same thing put in a nutshell.. but kaplan is a bit extensive and they do not test biochemistry that much.. this i say based on my experience.. however hard it might be FA is a must.. Good luck

If u already did ur biochem from kaplan, then IMO it will take 2 hours to finish it from FA, then what r u waiting for?
