Awesome but...
By Aydarus M. on 17. April 2019 for Clavicle – Bones and Surface Anatomy of Upper Limb

It was a great source of info I just wish it more of a deeper source rather than a sort of overview

Alright course but poorly delivered
By Mathew C. on 12. April 2019 for 12 Cranial Nerves and Their Functions

Content of the lectures were useful especially when breaking down the components of each nerve. However, much of the lectures consisted of reading from slides which is entirely pointless as i can do that myself. It would also have been handy to include clinical testing techniques for each nerve as these will be important tests for us as doctors

 
Better than some but still not perfect.
By Mathew C. on 11. April 2019 for Ventricular System: Ventricles and Communication

Breakdown and delivery of the information was much better than many other lectures in this part of the curriculum. However, the lecturer seemed confused and delivered information in a confusing way towards the end. I also noticed that one of the tables in the slides changes suddenly to read something different and this confuses things further. Overall a lecture capable of delivering useful information in a concise way.
