Biochemistry is not new to the MCAT, but it is a subject that you should be studying. Dr. Anthony LaFond, Next Step’s Director of MCAT Content, has over a decade of experience teaching the MCAT and is an excellent resource for you to utilize. He discusses Biochemistry on the MCAT in the recording below.
Dr. Lafond goes over several practice questions in real time. Test takers have the ability to highlight questions in the newer 2015 format, and Dr. LaFond shows you how to utilize this feature to help you understand what the question is asking and to eliminate the incorrect answers. The AAMC has a tendency to word questions in a way that confuses test takers, so a strategy like this can be extremely useful. He also goes over some Biochemistry passages, showing you how to properly take notes while reading on the MCAT.
Dr. LaFond stresses the importance of content review; you need to have a solid foundation before you begin to build your knowledge, and content review will help you do just that. He goes over strategies for content review, showing you ways to keep your brain engaged while memorizing important content. Biochemistry is one of the most important science subjects on the MCAT and it is one you will want to understand.
