I understood (almost) everything
By Sophie R. on 04. July 2018 for Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)

Even though i don't use english as my main language i understood almost everything and i haven't really studied it well. I really liked it!

By Sona C. on 04. April 2018 for Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS): Output and Thoracolumbar Outflow

These lectures are great! It's good to know also that a lot of topics that are discussed in one lecture are later elaborated on in another lecture too. Usually if I feel like some topic was not covered in depth, it just means that I was discussed further in another video. This is incredibly helpful for Step 1 prep!

Marvellous facts????

Very nice methoad of teaching,first overview,then step by step teaching Neglect above negative comments???? Just flow with it,try questions too.

Average and needs improvment
By MD M. on 08. March 2018 for Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)

average explanation. This course does not go into deep details. Anyone who lacks fundamental knowledge of the ANS will not be able to get everything the prof said. The questions are good but some lack explanations, others which have explanations, are not rich enough. The diagrams could be better. And the feedback feature of questions is removed. I think the answer to one of the questions which is shown as right is wrong and I could not give feedback.
