Help Finished biochemistry and can't remember anything

Hi everyone,
I've been doing biochemistry from Kaplan videos and notes for the past 2 - 3 weeks and it went very slow.
I feel like I don't remember anything from it though! Any ideas or suggestions as to how I should review biochemistry again ?
Thanks

Biochemistry is one of the most difficult topics to retain as you can see here
The most difficult subject in USMLE Step 1

Also, it's pretty much normal that you feel don't remember anything as you can see here
USMLE Forgetfulness Syndrome!

I suggest you start doing (biochemistry-only) Kaplan QBank blocks and review your material as you do the questions and read the explanations.

Default Thank you

Thank you, I will definitely do the questions for Biochemistry. I am currently doing Kaplan Qbook questions along with my first read and then will switch over to Uworld !
