Should I take biochem before I take the MCAT? It seems quite a number of people on SDN have recommended doing this. If everything goes according to schedule, my prereqs will be completed by the end of sophomore year. However, if I want to take biochem, I wont' be able to take the MCAT until at least after the first quarter of junior year. I probably won't have as much time to study for the MCAT during the school year and it might also be harder to remember the old material. Does taking biochem really help that much for the MCAT? I really appreciate your input. Thanks!
