Biochemistry is an important area of knowledge in the basic cycle of health courses, such as biomedicine and medicine. The aim of the present study was to compare teaching techniques, such as whiteboard, power-point and combination of these techniques and to investigate the role of quiz examinations for biochemistry discipline to undergraduate students. The students were 26 undergraduate medical laboratory in the second semester of the first year for general biochemistry course. The biochemistry subjects in this course are divided into metabolic and structural topics. As teaching methods, traditional whiteboard, power-point and combination of these techniques were used. The students were evaluated by two methods of quiz examination; next week and immediately after classes. Preferences for specific topics and teaching methods were determined from questionnaires distributed at the end of the course. The data were analyzed qualitatively using SPSS software. All of the students preferred the combination of traditional whiteboard and power-point as teaching technique. All of the students agreed with quiz examinations. From these, 76% preferred next week quiz examinations. Sixty-eight percent of the students preferred structural topics. In conclusion, using the combination of traditional whiteboard and power-point methods as teaching technique could turn biochemistry more easily understood for students.
