Not enough information.
By Shalom G. on 19. January 2017 for Abdomen

I'm prepping for my final exams for anatomy, histology and embryology and I need a more detailed information for the rectum and anal canal of large intestine topic. This is my only concern for now

Very helpful
By Neuer N. on 17. January 2017 for Compartments and Cervical Fascia – Neck

I picked this rate because he gives detail about the neck and parts of the neck. I really like this for a 9th grader it's helping me learn more for med school. Please do more videos, not just for me, but for people that want to be something when they make it to med school or college. This website is very helpful in many ways like: when you are on the way to school and your have a test about the human body, or when you just want to study for a test a week or two away. I plan to keep using this website for important chooses in my life. I want to be able to help people with their problems and give them information. I don't want to go home and be that one person with a dream and not go for it. I want to be a help and influence to people in need so, keep making these videos and make people happy for what they want to be in life. Dezire Baker
