I'm looking for either a textbook or website for Year 1 topics like DNA replication etc.
I find it easier to learn topics when it's all written chronologically on one page rather than in lots of different slides or scattered on flashcards, which is why I don't like using lecture slides from home.
Are there any websites or textbooks for biology that are like this? Are there any resources you use that you think are particularly good?

Biology/Biochemistry degree students please share!

Albert's cell biology was the book I used the most, I find the diagrams and explanations really helpful.

Yh Essential Cell Biology is pretty good, although I found it didn't contain quite a lot of stuff I needed, but I don't do biology so it might be more useful for a biology course.

I did biomed and thought it was great for explaining the concepts I needed for first year. What course do you do?

Medicine, the textbook was good but I do remember looking things up and not being able to find them, so I sort of just began using it as background reading before bed or something rather than as a major revision resource

Yeah not great for medicine because it focuses entirely on the cellular processes but it has little information on physiology, histology and things more applicable to medicine. In fact biochemistry books are a bit better for medicine than cell biology books I think.

So what are you using? Have you tried Kumar and Clarks Clinical medicine and Vander's physiology?
