    I wouldn't want to take pchem and biochem together either, but I had a friend do it this spring and he made an A in biochem and a B (highest grade in class) in pchem, so it is possible to do it. I would say it depends how many weeks the biochem class is this summer, is it 5, 8, or 10 wks? It's offered in 5 wks at my school and from I understand it's not easy, but if that is all you are taking, then go for it!

    because biochem and pchem are supposed to be disgusting together...lol...that's why people don't like doing both at the same time, they're upper level classes that are pretty demanding

    Taking biochem over the summer won't look bad at all. The only thing that will look bad is if you get a bad grade in it, which is more likely to occur if you take it in the same semester with another challenging class. ;)
