All MCAT roads lead back to amino acids. These biomolecules are fundamental: amino acids are tested directly and indirectly on the MCAT, and are incorporated into almost all biological experiments. Tune into this webinar for a thorough review of the basics and to see the most efficient way to organize amino acids!

On the MCAT
Amino acids are the foundations of biochemistry and thus the highest yield topic on the test. We usually recommend studying these biomolecules first and last so that you don't forget them on the big day!
The MCAT tests these biomolecules thoroughly and sometimes in surprising ways - stay alert!
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
