Ecampus Schedule for BB 451/551 Spring Term, 2013

(Note - this is the page for the ECAMPUS version of BB 450/550. The CLASSROOM version is different and should not be used by CLASSROOM students, nor should the ECAMPUS version be used by CLASSROOM students)

The syllabus is required reading in this course. Download it HERE. The book used in this course is the seventh edition of Berg, Tymoczko, and Stryer. If you would like a free biochemistry book called Biochemistry Free and Easy (BFE below), you may download it HERE. Please note that BFE is not as extensive as the Stryer book.

Technical Notes - You should use the YouTube videos for viewing and the iTunes U videos (identical) for downloading. The streaming audio files (.mp3) should load onto an iPod if first put into iTunes.

You connect with iTunes U for OSU HERE. If you have problems, please let me know.

All songs in the course can be obtained HERE

Exam 1 material ends at the end of this lecture (despite what it says on the video - ecampus is different from classroom)

BFE 144-150
April 17-19

The exam format in BB 451/551 for ecampus is exactly the same as the format used in BB 450/550 for ecampus - multiple choice. I do not provide practice exams for multiple choice exams, since the format is simple and I do not recommend study strategies using old exams because they usually lead students astray - things change from one term to the next.

Exam I

This exam must be started and completed within a window that begins on April 17 at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Pacific time and ends at 5:00 p.m. U.S. Pacific time on April 19.
