Publisher's Summary

A total of 27 hours of lessons and conversations on MCAT biochemistry from a full panel of Kaplan's MCAT experts, with a 150-page downloadable workbook to follow along as you listen.

From the makers of the number-one MCAT course, Kaplan's MCAT Biochemistry Audio Review is designed to fit into times when you couldn't otherwise study - whether on the road, at the gym, or just looking for a change of pace from reading a textbook. Each of the 12 chapters, which, combined, cover the full scope of MCAT biochemistry, is a multihour conversation with some of Kaplan's best biochemistry minds, where they share their deep knowledge of the content, their experience with students, and all their most effective learning techniques as they go along. Their conversations, hosted by Jeffrey Koetje, MD, are structured and informative but also open and casual, almost as if they're reviewing the material themselves and you've joined their study group.

By the end of this audio course, you'll hear their take on the best ways to learn and remember all the biochemistry (and much of the molecular biology) you need to know for the MCAT, including amino acids, plasma membranes, cell metabolism, and much more. You can listen to it on the go, follow along, and take notes with the MCAT Biochemistry Audio Workbook (included as digital download, but also available in print), or even integrate this into a larger course of study with Kaplan's MCAT Complete 7-Book Subject Review - however you study, you'll enjoy the fresh and memorable perspective on this important material that you'll use on the MCAT, in medical school, and beyond.

A Hidden Gem

I can’t recommend this enough. Not too many people know about this but this is a wonderful resource for biochemistry for MCAT. It’s surprisingly fun given how dense the information they throw at us. The speakers are knowledgeable and have a sense of humor which makes it entertaining but informative at the same time. I listen to this at work or when I’m commuting and it helps tremendously with my busy work schedule while having to study. I especially enjoyed the last few chapters about metabolism which is extremely high yield and difficult. They broke the processes down in a way that I’m now not only strictly memorizing the details but also understanding and enjoying them. Thank you for making this!

Long, Broad Overview of Basic Biochemistry

This plays a lot like a podcast which I believe is the intent of the authors. The topics are extremely important for mcat or medical school biochemistry. Its probably enough to give a premed what they need for the mcat if they have/haven't had a biochemistry course. It's not enough for a Medical Students review. At 30ish hours its long and not worth a medical student's time. That may sound obvious but I want to say it for anyone who might be thinking about getting this.

Some audio is recorded over calls/skype and is lacking. I would make sure to use the pdf or another biochemistry book to follow along and actually learn the material. JUST LISTENING WILL NOT GET YOU MANY POINTS. It won't because you need to more than a cursory look at the material and they don't really get 'into the weeds' with anything.

TLDR: Good for premeds, med students can find a better use of 30 hours.

Where are the rest?

If there's a set covering the remaining books, I'd buy it. Great AV learning with book.

Useful supplement

I found this audiobook to be a great companion to the course books, but I don’t think I would have been able to follow along just using the audiobook itself. It is very helpful as a supplement. It helps to stress some of the more high yield material, gives you most of what you need to know, and puts the topics into a more clinical context. This seems to be the only audiobook available from Kaplan, which is interesting considering biochem involves a lot of memorization and figures. I would think psychology to be the best topic for audiobook. Hopefully they do eventually expand this series.

GREAT CONTENT REVIEW

I love this book. If you're studying and are pressed for time, please use this book! Dr. K is a great lecturer. Kaplan MCAT Biochemistry Audio Review does the best job with bio and biochemistry (no I am not a sponsor or bot; I'm a broke pre-med). Good Luck!

Very helpful dialogue for biochemistry!

This audiobook truly helped increase my confidence and knowledge of many topics. The narration blends passion and mastery into an exclusive dialogue that I found extremely useful. The included audio companion PDF is helpful for individuals who may not own the KAPLAN MCAT 7-book set. *highly recommended*

Educative but Too Long

Has some really useful information but, it would of been so much better and easier to listen to if the topics / topic areas were divided into separate audiobooks.

Really relaxed reading of a difficult subject

Biochemistry isn't a particularly easy subject, but this audio book takes you through it as gently as possible. I particularly like the group readings which allows some discussion.
