As stated in our Amino Acid webinar, all MCAT roads lead back to amino acids. From amino acids, the next stop is proteins. Proteins come in a variety of sizes, shapes, charges, and functions. Structurally, they have four different levels, from primary to quaternary, and are often the source of experimental data. Tune in to learn more about the basics of proteins.

On the MCAT
As amino acids products, proteins permeate both science sections of the test. They appear often in experimental questions, as well as basic recall level questions. Study them well because protein passages can easily be paired with many other high-yield areas (like gen chem)
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.
