    After doing the first section of TBR bio a little over a week ago, the passages destroyed me. Is this someone most people have trouble with? I haven't had biochem or o-chem yet (self teaching that this summer), but is that why I'm having trouble? How much molecular bio and o-chem is directly on the MCAT in general?

    Is this something I really need to buckle down harder on and knock out that as a weakness?

    Yes. O-chem and o-chem concepts are very important on the MCAT.

    I did not feel like biochem was necessary, although ochem definitely is. The TBR bio passages are ridiculous sometimes due to the trivial knowledge they want you to retain that would otherwise be given in the passage on the actual MCAT. Do not worry if you are getting destroyed due to these tiny details and worry more about the larger concepts (this is not to say forget about all details, it's just most of them in TBR bio are not needed).
