PreTest is the closest you can get to seeing the USMLE Step 1 before you take it!

500 USMLE-style questions and answers!

"Biochemistry and Genetics: PreTest is a valuable resource for students in their board preparation. The author does a good job of presenting complicated information in an easily accessible format with clinically relevant questions and detailed basic science answers."

— Daniel Eskenazi, Fourth Year MD/PhD Candidate, University of Washington School of Medicine

"…most of the questions are quite long, simulating the USMLE exam. I really like the detailed explanations. I think these are the best part of the book because they provide a thorough review of the disease processes and concepts. The topic areas covered are very representative of the high yield biochemistry info on the boards."

— David Scoville, Third Year Medical Student, University of Kansas School of Medicine.
