By RAMJIE L. on 18. January 2018 for Muscles of the Anterolateral Abdominal Wall – Abdominal Walls and Inguinal Canal

It's too boring.. I found it less interactive, less interesting. Better to read my Gray's Anatomy book.

Overall, an excellent overview of the essential anatomy of the region.

good lecture overall
By Edward K. on 27. August 2017 for Inguinal Canal – Abdominal Walls and Inguinal Canal

good lecture- lost a star because illustrations are in latin. I do appreciate latin is completely acceptable to use in the context of anatomy, but in practice nobody uses latin terms and it feels outdated and counter-productive to learn the latin nomenclature. It would be much easier to follow if everything was in english ; a small point but it did slow me down when following this lecture.
