Thanks for focusing on the "big picture!" The lecturer at my school bogged us down with the details, so it was hard to take in what the most important steps were

Very understandable

I Have watched only the free videos of basics of biochemistry as I seek to do Step 1 as an IMG. I like the smooth transitions and the questions at the end of each lecture. I seek to subscribe for the annual package soon.
