    There is a textbook...but you don't need it...all the notes that they will give you are more than enough...

    If you want something..use Lippencott's Illustrated Review for Biochemistry...and the Kaplan USMLE Biochem..

    Best of Luck!

    20 minutes--about 12 minutes on the freeway, and 8 minutes on the surface road.

    hey H-townComp-

    Sorry I couldn't talk the other day...did you get your financial aid squared away? Like I said, I didn't get nearly enough money, but I think I just need to learn how to budget better.

    As far as the Biochem book goes, don't buy the textbook. The Lippincott Review for Biochemistry is exactly what you'll need for Dr. Kiick's class!

    Let me know if you have anymore questions, you know where to find me!

    I don't think we've met, but I am sure we've passed by eachother many times without even realizing it...he he

    Good luck to all on Dermal and Anatomy!

    Htown- I think Peiyueng is just about right.. it usually takes me about 15-20 minutes to get to Rowland Heights from school. It usually takes about 5 minutes to get from school to the highway, then depending on traffic it's about a 10 minute drive to Rowland (for some good food I might say!)

    Yeah, Lippincott is a good book to have. Our professor's notes were plenty to study, but sometimes it helped having some information explained in a different fashion which was where Lippincott came in... I didn't use it most of the time though. There are other resources that will become more evident in the future. I still heard that some people did like using the Medical Biochemistry textbook as some of the professor's notes come from the book and some may prefer to read a book to get a more comprehensive explanation of subjects.

    Kiki2004- How are you guys doing these days.. too many exams at the same time? Yeah, Derm is going to be a nice knock in the head.. I should've worked harder, but I think I'll do okay if I get my study time in before the test. Sigh.. short-term memory. Well, at least I'll never forget Valtrex... I was wondering why that specifically sounded so familiar.. must've been all the TV commercials for genital herpes. Anatomy.. well, hopefully the days after Derm will be kind and I'll be able to punch that out too.

    What do _you_ usually do to relax/unwind on the weekdays.. and do you still go out and party on the weekends?
