C H A P T E R 1 WHERE TO START Instructions What Do I Need to Know? Instructions for Use Studying and Exams Trivia Sorter The first page of each chapter presents an index. A title-summary box for each section presents a short summary and memory jogger intended to be helpful for review. If you already know what the boxed terms mean and feel comfortable with them, don’t bother to read the text section that follows—proceed until you find a heading you don’t understand, and then read till you understand. The first rule (it may not really be the first rule, but it is a rule) is not to waste time reading things you already know. Keep on not reading the text until you find something you don’t understand—then read the text till you do. The sections are generally arranged in order of increasing complexity and build on previous sec- tions. So if you screwed up and jumped in over your head, back up a sec- tion or two. Another option is just to look at the pictures. Pictures and diagrams, if extensively annotated and carefully designed (by you), can be an enormous review aid. INSTRUCTIONS Read for understanding. Read only what you don’t know. Organize, organize, organize. 1

Medicine and biology are becoming increasingly molecular in nature, so one answer to the question is that you need to know things down to the last atom. Everything is not the right answer. You can’t pos- sibly learn it all. Therefore, you will have to be selective. Another answer is that you just need to know the things on the exam. Later ends at the final. In reality, later may be longer than this. Try to pick out the major concepts of biochemistry as you go along. Concepts are generally easier to remember than factual details—particularly if the concepts make sense.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
