The Medical Biochemistry Page - Biosynthesis of Cholesterol

Advanced topic. Good to read for the MCAT, but without stress.

The Medical Biochemistry Page - Steroid Hormone Biosynthesis Reactions

Virtual Textbook of Organic Chemistry - Biosynthetic Pathways

Some of the basic pathways in lipid biosynthesis from an organic chemistry perspective.

The Medical Biochemistry Page - Metabolism of Lipids

Advanced material. It is a good MCAT exercise to go through this material, but do not panic. Do a bit of stretching to make MCAT passages seem easy.
