    Does anybody have any recommendations for a supplimentary book? Right now I'm leaning BRS b/c of the questions. Has anybody had any great success with something else?

    Thanks

      Lippencott's Illustrated Reviews are pretty good, especially if you like pictures and charts. I have also been using "Basic Medical Biochemistry, A Clinical Approach" by Marks. The names of the "patients" are a little hokey (Al Martini, who has a drinking problem, Cora Nari, with heart problems . . .) but I think the explanations are well written.

        Lippencott has yet to fail me.... they manage to explain concepts the way a medical student should be able to explain them... not the way a PhD should to his/her pupils :)

        It's cheap too and will probably serve you well for the boards later on.

          I agree that harpers is useless. It is great for an indepth look at biochemistry but for typical medical school knowledge, its too indepth and not very well written IMO. Lippincott's is by far a better biochem text
