"Before this course, I was wondering why I should cram all those pathways and enzymes. Now I understand! Prof. Ahern doesn't leave anyone behind, even slow learners will understand the basics and then learn the complex facts quicker. I'm now thinking of mastering in Biochemistry, besides my original goal of Internal Medicine."

FAQs

What is biology?

Biology is the field of study that examines all living organisms. Key topics relevant for MCAT students include cell function, genetics, developmental biology, physiology, and the principles of evolution.

What is biochemistry?

Biochemistry combines the sciences of biology and chemistry. It focuses on the chemical processes in living organisms on a molecular level: enzyme kinetics, metabolic pathways, DNA replication, and protein synthesis are some of the most important topics for the MCAT.

How much biochem is on the MCAT?

Biochemistry questions may come up in 2 of the MCAT’s sections: The section “Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems” and the “Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems” section. Combined, there could be about 30 biochemistry-related questions on the exam (out of 230 questions in total).

Does this course contain MCAT biochemistry questions?

Yes! Each Video Lesson comes with quiz questions making sure you have retained the must-know points about the topic. Additionally, you can prepare with the tailored MCAT Qbank containing over 900 questions about biology and biochemistry, specifically made to help you ace that MCAT section.
