FREE COMPREHENSIVE COURSEBiochemistry Course
The easier, more reliable way to learn and comprehend exactly what you need to know about biochemistry, including cellular and molecular biology, to feel confident on your exams and boards.
Biochem is challenging. Learning it doesn’t have to be.
Confused or overwhelmed by lectures and overly complex textbooks? If so, you’re not alone. That’s why the team behind First Aid created the high-yield Rx Bricks Cellular and Molecular Biology course to be a concise, interactive, and easy to understand way to learn biochem.
Gain a comprehensive understanding of Biochemistry—faster and easier than ever. We intentionally break down biochem’s need-to-know topics into digestible Bricks with interactive illustrations, mnemonic devices, clinical correlations, and case studies. This means you can absorb critical information more easily, connect this core material with real-world scenarios, and ace your exams with confidence.
Rx Bricks remains the easiest to understand collection of high yield concepts for the USMLE exams I've come across.
Covering Every Concept You Need To Know
Each Brick contains an at-a-glance Summary of the most essential biochem information. Plus, measurable Learning Objectives at the beginning and end of each brick help you track your progress. And most can be covered in 20 minutes.
Reinforce your learning with interactive flashcards that help you retain more information.
Quiz yourself as you learn using detailed, interactive images incorporated throughout each biochem Brick.
Built-In Practice Questions
At the end of each Brick, challenge yourself with built-in review questions. Each item explains exactly why the answer is correct and why the other choices are incorrect.

See what students are saying about the comprehensive courses in Rx Bricks:
“It’s very well organized. And daunting topics are created in a very easy way to learn—and quickly!”
“It is the best. So much valuable information. Bricks is a concoction of Harrison, Robbins, Goodman & Gilman, Grey’s and many more books which I don’t have to spend hours reading because Bricks has made it so easy. I’ve started to love studying…which is a big achievement in itself.”
“It’s short, crisp and clear. No nonsense stuff, absolutely high yield. Love it.”
“Rx Bricks are amazing! They are organized so that, even if you don’t remember anything on a certain topic, you will be able to refresh your memory, fill in any gaps, and expand on the knowledge you already have. Having videos and links to the First Aid pages is unmatched. And finally, being able to look at flash cards and take practice questions on the covered topic, solidifies the information in your mind.”
“Rx Bricks remains the easiest to understand collection of high yield concepts for the USMLE exams I’ve come across.”
“Those who are just starting their journey for USMLE Step 1, I do highly recommend this because First Aid is an absolute essential, but oftentimes it gets quite boring and difficult to understand. First Aid tends to give information in a very few lines which sometimes needs more. So at that point, for strong basic understanding [Rx Bricks] is quite a great help. In addition to that, it provides audio clips and different histological and specimen images that often show up in examination.”
