Fun times with biochemistry! 2.0

:iconrendjur:
rendjur Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2012
I made a thread a few weeks ago in regards to biochemistry...or maybe a month ago. I've lost all sense of time. But here's another thread! WHOoOOoOOo.

I don't mind biochemistry, but there are so many bedamned enzyme names. It scares me how people even managed to classify each substrate, reactant, co-factor, and enzyme. HOW U DO THIS. IT MAKES ME FEEL MORE DUMB BECAUSE PEOPLE DISCOVERED THIS STUFF AND I CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER IT. FUUUUUUU.

People spend their whole lives studying this stuff. And if you work REALLY HARD, you can be one of them!

If I were an enzyme, I'd be DNA-helicase so I could unzip your genes. :eyes:

Just right them down, and when ever you need them, look at the list, and if someone says you can't do that in a test, just stare at them at tell em fuck off

This is another good reason why I'm doing chemistry instead of biochemistry. IUPAC nomenclature actually makes sense =P

For me, I would rather do microbiology -- I have to take biochemistry as a prereq.

If it was based solely on material, I would probably choose biochemistry over (organic) chemistry (last chem classes I've really taken). The problem is that my biochemistry professor isn't the best, and so when you have craptons of stuff to learn...it gets very overwhelming.

Yes, I love microbiology too :) I did love organic chem, but just done my first lot of lectures on it (I'm doing a chemistry degree) and finding it very difficult. The professor's great, we just went through everything very quickly. My physical chem lecturer was amazing though.

I've never actually hated OCHEM -- I just wasn't particularly good at it. I think if you understand all the orbitals/theory behind it, it is fairly straight forward. I never did, so that's probably why I struggled so much with it.

And I think that's why I'm better with biology stuff. Sadly I suck at applying knowledge...which probably isn't a very good thing! Ha.

It's probably one of those things you have to really love to do well.

The material is genuinely interesting. My professor has difficulties presenting the material, however, so it gets confusing =(.

Flash cards suck. Anybody who thinks they can absorb information looking at a flash card is delusional.

rendjur Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
I think it depends on what you're dealing with. Flashcards with, say, history might not work so well. But if you have random structures to remember (eg. amino acids) it does help.

MayJackson Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
Hahaha! Well, I'm in a graduate program, so I guess I would know! Maybe it's not that flashcards will work for everyone, but just that the only people who will be able to succeed academically are those with the type of mind that can use them.

And water from Niagara Falls, and hormones from Japan
And vitamins and paraffins, and some beta carotine
And bits of tuna and dolphin that he got from a can
