Biochemistry This is what am going to do about Biochemistry

I am new medical graduate. I have started my preparation for step1 and I am pretty confused about biochemistry. I have decided to learn it that way;
- use first aid 2013 as a guide and read what is included from Lippincott's biochemistry too (only related chapters not the whole book).
- learn all the pathways by heart (reproduce them in paper)
- learn all the diseases mentioned in first aid
- then do use qbank of usmle world

I am really open to any suggestions, corrections or additions

thank you

I strongly recommend watching Kaplan videos for biochemistry

Bio chemistry is a nightmare for me but after watching the videos it became very easy

they tell which enzymes and substrates to recall bcoz you donot need to know everything in each cycle and that will save alot of time and effort

I recommend kaplan for biochemistry lippincott is very long and need lots of time

kaplan book without videos is bad but with videos it is good hold kaplan book while watching the videos and make notes and make ticks on the important enzymes and substrates

good luck

Kaplan is enough for molecular biology if you don't want to go deep, but if you want to be thorough, high yield molecular biology is concise and perfect. Remember, you'll rock biochem and probably retain the information if you make a cross-reference with other subjects clinically. Like Vitamin deficiency with neurology, hematology, pharm..etc. Always think of the potential question they might ask from a particular info you're studying, stop and think as you're reading between the lines, what is the significance of this concept? Is it related to any other concept I've previously learned? Then, you can develop your ability to integrate, and never forget about otherwise pathways and DNA concepts you thought we're very difficult to retain.
