Biochemistry is a hard course, but with time and practice, you're guaranteed a good score.
Dr.Siliciano was a very fun and engaging professor. He gave us lecture breaks and incorporated memes into almost every lecture. He thoroughly explained every concept, and hosted review sessions before every exam. I'd recommend to always attend class, because he does mention stuff that are not in the lecture notes.
Review the lecture notes daily, make sure to do homework, and practically memorize the lecture notes to pass the exams.

You get out what you put in. I would study 1-2 hours per day and this made all the difference when midterms rolled around. You have to understand that this class is looking at something and committing everything to memory. All major pathways + their activators/inhibitors + other common items. You must take a chunk out each day so it gets to the point you build up a tolerance to the commitment. Yes, it was draining, but this professor gave you everything in order to succeed. Yes, exams were hard but taking the time to commit everything to memory eliminated any doubt when looking through the questions.
A very compassionate teacher who was proud of the work she presented. Yes, the material was boring at moments, but she never let that stop her teaching.
The textbook is a must (diagrams are everything). Study every day (even for an hour), and practice by testing yourself. Watch YouTube videos and put the time in.
Janet Schottel is the way to go.
