      With Anatomy, I solely relied on BRS for review and did just fine. For biochem, I honestly didn't use any review books, but scheduled myself to go over all the lecture material before the exam, and did well. I guess from that, the lectures for me were better resources than review materials (I also relied on lecture notes for other subject boards for micro and neuro and did fairly well). If you're scrunched for time, and seems like you might be, perhaps the BRS books may give you the speedy review you need. But if you really want to do well, then schedule yourself efficiently to review the lecture notes... it makes sense that lectures go into more detail than the BRS books do, and the subject boards can be a little nitpicky.

        Lippincott's for biochem!!!! Harvey and Champe. Studied this and took our biochem department's shelf/final exam during the first week of school and passed. Don't have to take biochem as an MS1.
