Biochemistry advice

The semester has officially started for me and in a way I’m just really excited to begin and get rid of all this accumulated doubt in my abilities. On the other side, I’m feeling quite scared: will this semester be like the last one I had to retake? Can I really learn biochemistry when I don’t know much chemistry?
I suppose I won’t know unless I try…

The schedule says chemistry the next 2 weeks, so maybe if I can go through those 2 weeks and actually understand everything I might have a shot at biochemistry.
I’d love to hear what you all have to say about biochemistry - Any advice is highly appreciated!
