What happen to an enzyme after a reaction takes place?
  • the enzyme is degraded and recycled
  • it participates in negative feedback
  • it releases substrate and further catalyzes
  • it is inhibited by product
  • it is permanently conformed into tense state

Cliffs is great but if you want to score a 21 or above then you will probably need to supplement it with something else. Cliffs gives a great overview on most things but there are some subjects where I think it lacks detail.

Scaums is more comprehensive and has entire sections devoted to things cliffs either leaves out or barely mentions like embryology for example. I am still studying myself so I cant say for sure whats more on target. I also like destroyer for the sciences. The organic especially has some great hard questions to learn from. Also are you looking for a simple foundation or are you trying to learn more details? Keep that in mind when you decide what study tools to use. Good luck!

Dont get me wrong, I think Cliffs is great, but it lacks some in dept detail. Depending on your background, Cliffs alone should get you a 20 or above, but if you are looking for more, I suggest either ExamKracker or Princeton mcat review.

How long does Schaums take to go through? I was really trying to focus on bio and the PAT for the next two weeks before I start Kaplan.. Maybe if I go through Cliffs and then read over Schaums A-Z to see what was left out??

Shaums A-Z Biology or Schaums Easy Outline of Biology? A-Z is 300 some pages long..

How was ExamKrackers? Their bio review is a lot more expensive than Schaums...

I liked ExamKracker quite a bit. It was actually the book that I refered to most. If you are tight on money, I would suggest you get the Schaums. There are a few topics that are not covered in the EK books.

Thanks for your help, blueclue! I am pretty tight on $, so I am going to EZ-Borrow Schaums from another college library.
