Biochemistry in Olympiads
« on: December 14, 2015, 02:12:34 AM »
HellO! Is there any way to prepare for Biochemistry of olympiad level? When I was asking this question from some olympians they told that you should just solve problems. Sad I didn't found this very helpful. Would be grateful for information.

I am afraid there is no better answer - the only way of getting good at solving the problems, is to solve as many as possible.

Actually they don't have to be limited to biochemistry - I would include a bunch of chemical and physics problems into the set. Probably even some some logical problems (like the Einstein's Riddle). Solving skills are not related to a particular branch of science, they are universal.

Sure you need a good foundation - but in most cases studying any undergraduate biochemistry textbook will do, unless the organizers suggest a particular title or particular subjects, then just follow their suggestions. There is no one "best" book, as a lot depends on individual learning techniques.

ChemBuddy chemical calculators - stoichiometry, pH, concentration, buffer preparation, titrations.info, pH-meter.info

Borek is very right and I totally agree with him.You can use any book suggested by the organizers and start building your knowledge step by step by solving more and more problems.
