Enzyme Kinetics

Enzyme Kinetics

This webinar is all about enzyme kinetics, a key part of MCAT biochemistry. You will learn about the different graphs and equations, such as Michaelis-Menten and Lineweaver-Burk, that the MCAT requires, as well as the different types of enzyme regulation and inhibition.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Calculate with enzyme kinetics equations

  • Read enzyme tables, Michaelis-Menten graphs and Lineweaver Burk plots

  • Deduce cooperativity from tables and graphs

  • Determine and differentiate inhibitions


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • Binding vs. turnover

  • The 3 equations of enzyme kinetics

  • The 4 “k’s” of enzyme kinetics

  • The 2 graphs (Michaelis-Menten and Lineweaver-Burk)

  • The 3 types of inhibition


On the MCAT

  • Enzyme kinetics is one of the highest yield topics on the exam, second only to amino acids. It can be both calculation and graph intensive. There are also a lot of k’s! Don’t confuse them!

  • Don’t just memorize equations and tables without understanding the process; the test will always find your weak spots.


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.

“These 30 minute FREE, live videos conducted each Friday helped me get through the pandemic. Weike is an exceptional tutor, and being able to ask questions after she’s done was magnificent. These webinars have even helped me in class subjects such as Biochemistry.  I’m looking forward to starting one-on-one tutoring with Cambridge Coaching, and I’m already feeling confident about taking the MCAT when the time comes.”
