MCAT Super Review – Amino Acids webinar

This webinar session covered one of the most commonly accessed MCAT topics: amino acids. Clara Gillan, one of Next Step’s lead Content Developers and Premium tutors, discussed the ins and outs of amino acids on the MCAT during this Super Review.

Amino acids are almost certain to appear on both the Chemical & Physical Foundations and the Biological & Biochemical Foundations sections of the exam. This makes it a subject of great interest to future MCAT test-takers. Clara discussed everything from their general structure to the complexity of their acid-base behavior and its relation to biochemical lab techniques.

Unlike the lesson videos included in our class, the Extra Help sessions are not simply a lecture. These webinar sessions are intended to be interactive. Our Extra Help webinars will be conducted by one of our senior MCAT experts and will focus on specific MCAT content, but students will have the ability to ask and answer questions on mic.

Our goal at Next Step is to make sure that you have the resources needed to prepare for the MCAT and your future career. This Extra Help session is just a sampling of what our course students have access to on a regular basis. If you’re interested in our online MCAT course, click here. We also have several practice test bundles, including a free practice bundle, as well as one-on-one MCAT tutoring services. If you utilize our tutoring services or enroll in our course, you will receive customized plans that work at your pace and focus on the areas where you need to improve the most. What works for some may not work for all, so we are doing away with the cookie cutter approach and making sure that your study plan works for you.
