A popular volume in the Board Review Series, BRS Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is designed to help medical students study for the USMLE Step 1. While technically not a textbook, many students use BRS books as course books. Chapters are written in an outline format and include pedagogical features such as bolded key words, figures, tables, algorithms, and highlighted clinical correlates. A review test with 20 USMLE-style questions and answers follows each chapter. In addition, there is an end-of-book comprehensive exam. A companion Website includes questions and images from the book as well as fully searchable text.
