Best Biochemistry Book for USMLE Step 1
Post and Poll Options were last updated on November 26th, 2013.

In this poll we vote for the Best Biochemistry review book specific for the USMLE Step 1 Exam.

Choice of Books Listed in the Poll
You will notice that larger textbooks of biochemistry are not listed here, we are voting for those books that are specifically useful in the USMLE step 1 exam prep.
The books listed above are useful for Med school students during their med school years as well as graduates who are preparing for the step 1 exam.

Books that have only questions with no review of biochemistry are not listed. Exception to that is the Case Files series because that's a review book presented in cases format. Similarly Flashcards are not listed.
Books that are outdated (8 years or older) and that do not have updated editions also get removed from the poll, their votes are also deleted in the process.
If we have missed a Step 1 Biochemistry Review book, please post about it in the mainstream Step 1 Forum and we'll add it to this poll.

No Replies!
You will also notice that we move away or delete replies to this thread. This is because we want the focus on the poll above rather than discussion and comments. You can always check our Biochemistry Tag for discussions about biochemistry prep and books for the step 1 exam.

Who should vote?
Please do not vote if you haven't used any of the books above. Artificial inflation of votes by book authors publishers will be detected and removed. Votes that are older than 18 months are automatically deleted.

Why books are linked in the poll options?
Book links are periodically updated to the latest editions and will take you to Amazon pages where you can purchase those books. Books that are not available in Amazon cannot be listed.

Happy voting!
