The presentation is very nice and helpfuly The organization of topics was very good

High yield information.
By TIENTCHEU M. on 01. April 2021 for Biochemistry: Basics

I'm impressed with how high yield the information is. The professor touches very important aspects in just the shortest time that one video has, and that is really impressive. I do have a degree in Biochemistry and molecular biology and so this is really making me master the course gradually. For sure I'm recommending this course to my friends from same college already who aspire studying medicine like me.

Really good topics
