This class was tough.
This course requires a lot of time outside of class to learn the amount of content that is required. You also need a clicker and have access to the online website where homework and reading questions are posted every few days. If you want an understanding in biochemistry it is worth all the time and money however, as a student studying chemistry, there was very few things in this course that is useful to me and mostly required me to learn a lot of pathways.
From studying this course you will learn all the amino acids structures and pHs. You will also learn how to do acid-base calculations using ICE table well as this is a recurring feature. If you are going to do the MCAT is it essential as most of the questions are similar to what are on the exam.

Advice for students:
Make sure you take notes and listen in class as the professor tells you specific things that he will test. Also make sure to do all the homework and reading questions as it makes the content slightly easier to understand. Also consider going to the action centres that the professor sets up and try and complete the questions he sets for this as it is a perfect time to ask questions and get a better understanding.
