Author, John Pelley, wins 2010 Alpha Omega Alpha Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Award
John Pelley PhD, an associate author of two popular medical review titles, Rapid Review Biochemistry, and Elsevier's Integrated Review Biochemistry has won the 2010 Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Award. The award was established by the AOA medical honor society in 1988 to recognize faculty members who have distinguished themselves in medical student education. He is nationally known for applying concept mapping, a learning technique that focuses on building patterns and relationships to concepts, to medical education.

The online practice questions are NOT board style, they are overly simplistic and will only test your knowledge of keywords and COMPLETE/stereotypical disease presentations. Additionally, in spite of what the book's introduction suggests, there is only one way of taking the practice questions (random order from the whole databank).
Having an online copy of the book is nevertheless excellent, and the clinical key web site is well designed and highly functional.
I used this book as a supplement for Step1 studying with my First Aid. It was a great review of all things biochem that I had forgotten since early first year. It's definitely not the most substantial biochem book available, but I thought it was very useful for Step 1. Step 1 doesn't require PhD-depth of knowledge of biochem (which we were all probably taught as fist year med students). So this book was useful in cutting out the excess we were all taught and gets down to the important enzymes, reactions, co-factors, and such. There are also useful clinical correlates.
Overall, I thought this book was EXTREMELY useful as a supplement to the lacking First Aid. I actually wish I had this book first year, as it would have clarified many topics.
My only criticism is that Rapid Review Biochemistry feels a little rushed and like it doesn't have 100% attention to detail, especially in the tables. To compare, Rapid Review Pathology is a little more of a polished book. For instance, under cobalamin deficiency (Table 4-1), achlorhydria is listed as a sign/symptom. Okay, if you have cobalamin deficiency secondary to pernicious anemia that's definitely true, but it's not quite true as written. Small things like this add up. Still one of the better biochem review books in my opinion.
