Very clear and to the point explanations. It’s like sitting in class.

Abdominal wall review!
By Juan Jose A. on 16. March 2018 for Abdominal Wall

Very easy to follow, i like the length of the videos, I think they are more productive, very good foundation and supplement to my school's curriculum. For the most, Lecturio's professors usually outperform my school's professors at presenting material.

Confusing and superficial
By Neuer N. on 16. March 2018 for Limbic System

Unfortunately I found the course confusing and superficial. In my opinion, it would be important that all the structures of the system be shown, while explaining their functions, for example. Sorry for any mistake, but I'm not used to writing in english.
