Im doing an accelerated course outside the US.
Im supposed to be taking biochemistry over the summer. My college recommends Lippincotts illustrated review Biochem. I have a similar book for pharmacology and i dont understand it much. Which biochemistry book is the best?

Can someone recommend me some question banks for biochemistry, system courses etc etc (n e basic sciences subject)? where do i get them and which format is the better? books or Cds.

Im an IMG (from a PBL system) for course work Basic Medical Biochemistry by Marks and Marks was my major resource book. Has a great correlation with the clinicals and great for the basics. Seems a new edition is out.
For exam preparation I used Lippincotts Biochem. Im currently studying for my boards and Im using Lippincotts. The New edition is much more better with illustrations and end of chapter summaries.
