Get the Most Out of the Plan

The Biochemistry 10-Day Study Plan features an organized approach to mastering one of the hardest topics new students face in medical school. As a streamlined resource, it will help you get through all the nitty-gritty details you need to know on metabolism, cellular signaling, and other dense topics.

Each day features a list of topics and a Qbank session to go through. Here’s how we recommend you get the most out of the plan:

  1. Carefully go through the topics listed in high-yield mode, and don’t get intimidated by the number of topics you see; we’ve only chosen the most condensed, exam-relevant information you need to know to score high on the exam.
  2. Follow that up with each day’s curated Qbank question session. Questions are randomized across the topics covered that day but ordered by difficulty, going from easiest to most challenging, allowing you to gradually build up your knowledge and strengthen your diagnostic skills.

Of course, feel free to skip days or change the order as you see fit to better suit your needs.

To use the Biochemistry study plan, you need an AMBOSS account. Create yours here and activate 5 days of FREE access to explore the platform. Already have an account? Try our unlimited access plans and freely go through the Qbank and Knowledge Library on your own time.

AMBOSS is designed to help you prepare for your exams and succeed all throughout medical school.Thousands of medical students rely on its Qbank and Knowledge Library to score higher on the NBME® and USMLE® exams.

Even on the wards, it’s a handy clinical companion that can be referred to again and again, even offline.
