There are probably a lot of really good answers that may vary significantly in terms of content. I'm looking for a set of books that I can read in preparation for the GRE Subject Test In Biochemistry, Cell And Molecular Biology. I have a Bachelors of Science degree, but never really studied any of the material on this exam (it's in a field which is not really related). I'm interested in applying for a doctoral program in Biology, and would like to add something to my application so that it doesn't appear to come out of "left-field", as they say. When I look at the questions from the sample exam in the link above, I can't tell whether they are introductory in scope or would require advanced study in particular areas. Could somebody recommend a set of textbooks that would cover all of the ground for this test? If one textbook exists which is sufficient, that would be wonderful, but I'm guessing that multiple texts will be required. My goal is to learn the material necessary to do well on the exam as thoroughly as possible.
As an aside, I tried looking for study materials in online bookstores, but wasn't able to find anything that consistently got good reviews. I don't think Princeton Review or Barron's have books on this subject, unless I overlooked something. At any rate, I'm okay reading through a set of undergraduate university textbooks, but I really have no idea which ones would be good.
Thank you in advance!
Edit: I just changed the word "efficiently" to "thoroughly". Sorry about that... This more accurately reflects the goal.
