Cell Cycle and Cell Division

Maximize your knowledge!

Cell cycles and cell division may seem like simple topics to review. However, having sufficient knowledge of these topics, as is necessary to excel in the USMLE Step 1, is not easy. Don't be fooled into thinking USMLE Step 1 questions are simple. In fact, they are quite challenging and require a deep understanding of Biology to answer them correctly, which is why reviewing cell cycles and cell division with an expert is a good idea.

Dr. Georgina Cornwall is a Professor of Biology at Colorado Mountain College. Her high-yield lectures will provide you with important insights into the critical concepts behind this science. Dr. Cornwall will give you clinical pearls of knowledge and guide you in the right direction, to best prepare you for the type of questions you can expect from the USMLE Step 1.

This course will cover all of the following, essential concepts:

  • Cell Cycle Controls
  • Growth Factors
  • P53 Gene
  • Meiosis I: Anaphase I and Telophase I
  • Human Karyotype
  • Meiosis in Humans

Don't just scratch the surface when studying. Make sure you have a deep understanding of what you are reviewing. Let an expert help you.

I wish I could flag certain cards to not be included in the "spaced repetition".
By Yuan Yuan C. on 15. June 2020 for Cell Cycle and Cell Division

I like the format - the lectures are "short and sweet". The lecturer is reasonable easy to listen to. Perhaps it is just because this is a foundation course, but it does feel this material may not be in-depth enough for USMLE step 1. (Or perhaps because it's re-used for non-USMLE students?). The questions are just "okay". There are a few errors, and a couple questions could be worded better. It also seems that some of these questions are testing material that seems only marginally important, and may not be very "high-yield". I wish there was an option to flag review questions to not be included in the "spaced repetition". The "spaced repetition" idea should be for memorizing the most important details, and I don't really want to be memorizing questions that I think are of little importance, incorrect, or poorly worded. (It'd also be a good way your you at Lecturio to decide which questions should be revised - if many people flag it as "don't review again", the question probably needs revision.)

loved it

the instructor is very clear and is easy to follow

Very Very Confusing
By Oluwatomiloba O. on 02. June 2020 for Comparing Mitosis and Meiosis – Cell Division

Everything is confusing. The diagrams and what she was saying didnt allign. ALso she never gave the answer to the number of chromosomes in each stage of meiosis and mitosis

Video length
By Erdal B. on 19. April 2020 for Cell Cycle and Cell Division

The video episodes are way too short, need to go back and start over every 3-4 minutes. I think there should be a option to view the topic in one full video. Otherwise the subjects are well covered in an understandable manner. Many thanks
