Overview

Accelerated answers for the biochemistry course exams-written by students, for students



"This book's question/answer organization will help medical students quickly review for boards, yet the book has sufficient depth to also serve as a study guide in the basic science curriculum." -- Brian Piltz, M4, University of Washington School of Medicine

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eugene A Davidson, PhD (Georgetown University School of Medicine)
Description: This book is an attempt to provide a quick study fix for the desperate medical student. It includes questions and answers with a few clinical vignettes.
Purpose: The goal is to provide an easy review format for medical students preparing for the first step licensing examination. The approach is generally contrary to what most educators would recommend and is not a worthwhile objective. Given the shallowness of the coverage, even the desired goals are not met.
Audience: The target audience for this book is the medical student preparing for examinations, either USMLE step 1 or a final in biochemistry. The authors are students.
Features: There is a week to go before you are scheduled to take the first step of the USMLE licensing examination. You are desperate for some quick help in biochemistry. Will this book of questions (and mostly correct answers, but not in board format) be of value? Almost certainly not. Devoid of principle, this compilation of questions prepared by three enterprising medical students might have a nugget or two for you if, and only if, the virtually identical question appeared on the examination. The final section, clinical vignettes, attempts to mimic the integrative format of the step 1 examination but is monotonic in nature (essentially all based on genetic defects) and equally valueless. Errors of fact and spelling contribute to lowering its value.
Assessment: This book is contrary to what we try to teach our students in terms of learning complex material and enabling for habits diametrically opposed to those desired in a physician.
