MCQs in Biochemistry for Medical Students
First Edition: 2017
Printed at
This book has been written for MBBS and BDS students and follows a system-wise approach. I have tried to include as much relevant material for a system as is possible within the confines of basic science.
In addition to the widely demanded purpose of providing a means to practice for examination, this book aims to enhance learning of biochemical concepts utilizing an analytical approach. I believe analyzing the various choices of answers to a question and choosing the correct one is a learning activity that clarifies concepts as well as helps in retaining information. This book, hence, is best utilized if students read about the organ systems from textbooks, and then score themselves without going through the answers provided. The second exercise will be to go through the answers for each set of MCQs, followed by a second self assessment. For your convenience, bubble sheets for marking answers have been provided after each chapter.
This is not a compilation of questions taken from examinations that are published elsewhere. All of the MCQs have been written by me, however, some similarities might be inevitable owing to the nature of the content.
